• Gustavo Piga
    Gustavo Piga: The complexity of the global economy needs to be faced and governed with decisiveness, vision and values. The future leaders that will master these new challenges need to be passioned, curious, competent and open to change and diversity. The Global Governance B.A. is built for them.
  • Riccardo Cardilli
    Riccardo Cardilli: A global world needs universal ideas. National states and legal orders prevent universal perspectives and common rules. Which universal ideas can we imagine to face globalization? What methods to solve the contradiction between global law, superpowers and human rights?
  • Donato Abruzzese
    Donato Abruzzese: My course? Contributing to the Global Governance BA with the skills to manage and prevent natural disasters. It's time to face even earthquake and tsunami considering global experience and coordinating the prevention and the reactions.
  • Silvio Pons
    Silvio Pons: "We know what things cost but have no idea what they are worth. We no longer ask of a judicial ruling or a legislative act: Is it good? Is it fair? Is it just? Is it right? Will it help bring about a better society or a better world? Those used to be the political questions, even if they invited no easy answers. We must learn once again to pose them". (Tony Judt)
  • Elisabetta Strickland
    Elisabetta Strickland: A choice for today to become a leader of our tomorrow.
  • Paola Sinibaldi
    Paola Sinibaldi: Being healthy is a right of every body in the world. To preserve the state of health is a big challenge and it needs a very different business model to be successful.
