New International Cooperation: Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná and Rome Business School

New Partnership Agreement signed in Rome – Italy and Curitiba – Brazil, with upcoming students in October 2021

Rome Business School is pleased to announce the signing of a new partnership with PUCPR – Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná, a university located with the main campus in Curitiba, the capital city of the State of Paraná, Brazil. Specifically, the Rome Business School will welcome the students from the Escola de Negócios of PUCPR, one of the five academic units of the university: starting from the next Fall 2021 intake the successful candidates will have the possibility to join one of RBS Masters for one-year abroad experience to the beautiful city of Rome

A partnership that has been developed and designed during the past year, which even if plenty of challenges did not stop the ultimate willingness to continue to serve the students the best way possible: giving them access to new possibilities, expertise, and academic paths to professional outlets. In this context, the Rome Business School has been listed among other prestigious schools and universitiesas to be part of the selection the candidates will be asked to face during these months: by next February 2021. Once the students will be back from the Summer Break (remember that in the Southern Hemisphere the summer has just started!), students attending their last year will select their destination and hence the recruitment of the candidates will start as to finalize their enrolment in the Masters starting in October 2021 at Rome Business School. For the very first time, the students of the Escola de Negócios of PUCPR will have the possibility to decide to go to Italy, in the Eternal City and Capital of the “Bel Paese”, for a double degree program within one-year abroad experience. 

“I am very pleased to welcome in Rome the students coming from PUCPR. This is a true opportunity to start another fruitful academic year, where we are 100% committed to enlarge even more the services to the students by guaranteeing safety and high-level learning experience at the same time” declares Antonio Ragusathe Dean of Rome Business School.

The Curitiba campus was the very first one to be established along with five academic units: the Center for Biological and Health Sciences, the Center for Exact Sciences and Technology, the Center for Juridical and Social Sciences, the Center for Humanities and Theology, and the Business School. Nowadays, PUCPR counts more than 30.000 studentsin 60 undergraduate courses and over 150 postgraduate courses, counting seven different faculty schools:
