Studying and working in Lombardy, Italy

Lombardy (Italian: Lombardia) is the most financially advanced and modern administrative region in all of Italy, offering a flourishing job market and opportunities pertaining to a multitude of fields: IT, healthcare, art, fashion, tourism, food and beverage, and more.

You will undoubtedly fall in love with the vibrant culture, the excellent food, the picturesque scenery of the Alps, the charm of small towns, and the dynamic lifestyle of bigger cities that this region has to offer.

Students can work part-time while learning with us. Many of our trainees easily find a side job thanks to our relationship with a network of 800+ companies.

Our training programs are held in the city of Como, washed by the worldwide famous lake which has captured the hearts of countless tourists and celebrities. There are few places around the globe where you can sit in a square dating back to the 1500's, while looking out to a vast lake; or find churches, villas and gardens from the Neoclassical, Renaissance and Romanesque periods all a short walk away from each other.

Como is only 30-45 minutes away (by car) from the cosmopolitan city of Milan, the second biggest city in the country. If you are into art or fashion, there is probably no better place to visit!

When it comes to public transport, all main cities and towns in Lombardy are very well-connected: you can easily use buses, trains, subways and trams to travel around and explore.
