The School

Ca’ Foscari Challenge School meets the specific training needs of recent graduates to build solid knowledge through multiple professional paths that we have created with the participation of Italian and international companies.

Ca’ Foscari Challenge School supports the growth of private-sector entrepreneurs and workers as well as public-sector professionals who want to invest in developing their skills, imagining new scenarios for their future. 

The paths proposed by Ca’ Foscari Challenge School analyse all of the innovations and changes that stakeholders currently need to know. Our community of teachers and partners brings together talent, innovation and determination – all essential for a strategic learning experience effective for career-furtherance.

The overall training solutions are structured among four ‘Schools’ entitled Environment, Government, Humanities, and Management. As to the traditional Ca’ Foscari study areas, the Ca’ Foscari Challenge School adds in dynamic enhancement so students are better prepared to find the right job.

Our connections with university professors, other academics, business professionals, and public and private organisations in the local area engender an open and stimulating environment. 

By bringing together Italian and international scientific, educational, and professional culture to create an effective blend, our programmes are useful to society, institutions, and businesses.

We are committed to transforming these areas of expertise into distinctive training initiatives for our stakeholders in order to deliver quality experiences that will truly enhance the evolution of the economy, the business fabric, and the society of the future.

Ca’ Foscari Challenge School is located in Venice, a historical city of creativity and visionary capacity, where cultures converge and knowledge expands.
