American University of Rome
The American University of Rome (AUR) is an American degree-granting institution founded in 1969 that provides a strong liberal arts education to students from around the world. It has a diverse student body who represent 60 countries. 28 different native languages are spoken by both students and staff on campus. AUR prepares students to thrive as professionals across cultures.
All of its 10 bachelors and three masters degrees are taught in English. Each program is interdisciplinary by nature and combines theory with practice through internships as well industry partnerships. Many professors even take students around the city of Rome for on-site visits as part of their lectures, making the study experience truly one of a kind. AUR is a not-for-profit institution, offering relatively affordable tuition.
The campus is located in the city's highest hill, giving students a breathtaking view of Rome. Home to only 500 undergraduate and postgraduate students, AUR provides a welcoming, close-knit environment due to the low student-to-faculty ratio.

It offers students world-class education and support from highly qualified faculty and staff. It has various programs that include the fields of human resource management, information technology, marketing, hospitality, business, finance, logistics, psychology, communication and more.
