Program Description:


LUISS –Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli, or the Guido Carli Free International University for Social Studies – is an independent university. It was created out of a pre-existing Roman institution, the Pro Deo, between 1974 and 1978.

LUISS offers an innovative educational approach at its four Departments: Economics and Finance, Business and Management, Law, and Political Science. Its goal is not simply to convey knowledge but to “instill flexibility” in young people, giving them a sense of mastery over their future.

What distinguishes LUISS is its privileged relationship with the business world.  Over 200 companies, multinationals, and public and private institutions collaborate with the University, offering its degree candidates and new graduates their first real opportunities to step foot in the business world.


LUISS Guido Carli Roma offers courses in several academic areas.  These courses are subject to change. Business students considering this program should meet with an advisor in the Office of International Business Studies (College of Business Administration, David Straz Hall 101) to initially evaluate course options. Once a student is accepted to study abroad, s/he will meet with an International Business Studies advisor to approve courses.  Please note that the classes often change: it is the student’s responsibility to remain in direct contact with the  Office of International Business Studies to request changes or updates. Grades do not transfer to Marquette University for this program. Only credits will transfer provided that a grade of “C” or higher is earned.


LUISS Guido Carli has a university residence which is not open to exchange students.  Most Erasmus and exchange students live in private apartments with Italian or international students in the vicinity of the University.  Accommodation will only be given to students who apply by the deadline and are accepted by the LUISS Student Exchange Office under the Erasmus program or another student exchange agreement.  

The Student Exchange Office will send the official list of accepted students to the organization in charge of housing.  The average cost is about €400/month for a place in a double room and about €500/month for a place in a single room, plus extras (telephone, electricity, heating, gas).  CTS will send an offer of accommodation to students via email, which must be confirmed by the deadline given. If the offer is not confirmed, the student will lose the room, which will be assigned to another person.

Rome was, and still is, the cultural and political center of Italy. As the country’s capital and the home of Vatican City, Rome provides students with numerous opportunities to put their academic studies into a global context.

Students will find their classroom work come alive on the city’s cobblestone streets as they jockey through traffic jams around the Colosseum, watch families stroll through the Forum, and join other students for gelato near the Pantheon. The amazing architecture, art, and ruins easily draw students into the stories of the famous thinkers and artists of the Renaissance and history of the Roman Empire.

While the glory of its heritage still resides, Rome is still a modern city of commerce, tourism and industry with the characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of all contemporary cities. As one of the larger economies in the EU, it encourages discussions around political science, social justice, international relations and business. The history, life and culture of the city makes Rome a prime location to study abroad.
