Padua Management Internship Program

Open to BU students only, the Padua Management Internship Program offers a spring-semester internship program consisting of two management courses, an Italian language and culture course, and an internship for credit. Students directly enroll in the University of Padua Department of Business and Economics and have access to all University of Padua facilities and services.

Program Details

All students will take Introduction to Italian Language and Culture for Business. Students also enroll in two English-taught courses at the University of Padua Department of Economics and Business selected from a list of SMG approved courses, and CAS EC 497 Internship in Business/Economics.

Program Dates
  • Spring Semester: mid-January to early June

Please note that this program is only offered during the spring semester.

  • Upon successful completion of the program, students receive BU SMG credit for management courses and earn sixteen Boston University credits. Students must enroll for a total of sixteen credits.
  • Students live in Italian households. Households selected for program participants represent a wide range of incomes and situations, from a grandmother living alone to a couple living in the city to a suburban family with young children. They are encouraged to eat at the university cafeterias, called “mense,” where meals are available at nominal cost. Students eat breakfast every day and three evening meals a week with their hosts. Students are given an ID from the University of Padova, which allows them to access department libraries and mense, and to have discounts in cinemas and stores in Padua, as well as in a number of museums.
