FUB Free University of Bolzano / Faculty of Economics (Bozen – Bruneck)

Founded in 1997, the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano (FUB) has celebrated 20 years of its existence in 2017. The headquarter is set in Bozen/Bolzano, whereas two other subsidiaries are set in the city of Brixen/Bressanone and Bruneck/Brunico.

 

 

The Free University of Bozen/Bolzano focuses its teaching in the main fields of Economics, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Social Sciences, Education and Design.

 

The FUB has a high share of students (17%) as well as lectures (around 30%) coming from abroad.  All in all, the university has 3,600 students registered to more than 30 undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses. The taught modules as well as the research projects are linked to international and inter-regional networks.

 

The Faculty of Economics and Management that hosts this initiative counts on academic staff with high expertise in the fields of agricultural economics and tourism.

 

The Free University of Bozen/Faculty of Economics and Management features six computer rooms of different size (from 51m² to 142,91 m²) with a varied equipment (PC and  iMac). The Faculty also offers a co-working space where students can work in a more “informal” way (e.g. working groups). This working area consists of computers, sofas, whiteboard and flipchart. Besides, in 2016 the university launched the project “mobile classroom”. Within this project, there is a selected number of laptops available for students. The latter can bring them to the classrooms, thus using teaching rooms also as PC room at the same time.
