An International Workshop on the increasingly important issue of Food Security and the broader challenge of Sustainable Agriculture, in a world where the demand for not only the quantity but also the quality of food is increasing was hosted at VIU on Dec. 12-13, 2013.
On Thursday December 19, VIU will host a Closing Ceremony for the 150 students from America, Asia, Europe and Australia who have been attending courses taught by distinguished professors from VIU's member universities since September. Awards for academic excellence, mobility scholarships and internship placements will be announced during the ceremony.
Master's students who are interested in developing a thesis on topics addressed in the courses of the Globalization Program are invited to apply for the Internships and Mobility program. Qualified students attend one semester of courses and compete for the research internships at the member universities and other excellent host organizations with whom VIU has signed bilateral agreements.
An internship at the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) is one of the many opportunities open to students of the Globalization Program. Chiara Manzoni, a Ca' Foscari graduate student in Economics and Management of the Arts tells us about her experience at the museum where she is carrying out research for her final dissertation. Chiara was a student at VIU in Fall 2012.
