From the very beginning the Business School integrated theoretical exploration with practical activity and the study of western and eastern languages, so as to provide students with a complete education in economics and business.
During the twentieth century the School progressively increased its educational and cultural activity, thus becoming an important reference point in the area.
In 1919, having survived the storm of the First World War and after the temporary transfer to Pisa, Ca’ Foscari was authorised by law to extend its three-year programmes with a fourth year of study.
Nine years later the School came under the authority of the National Ministry of Education (which corresponds to the current Ministry of Education, University and Research) and in 1934 the title of School Director was replaced by that of Rector. Then in 1935, with the birth of the Faculty of Economics and Business, the school became a fully-fledged State University, while the following year it received official authorisation to issue Degrees in Modern Languages and Literatures.
Even during the Second World War Ca’ Foscari continued its activity without interruption, helped by the fact that the historical centre of Venice was spared from the bombing. Then in 1954, the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures was established (the first in Italy), while in 1969 the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Chemistry were born, after the university attained legal status.
Ca’ Foscari today
Today Ca’ Foscari University of Venice teaches approximately 20,000 students and covers four large scientific and cultural areas (corresponding to the four Faculties in force until 2010): Economics, Foreign Languages and Literatures, Humanities and Sciences.
Since the academic year 2011/2012 the university has been organized into 8 Departments and 6 Interdepartmental Schools, responsible for research and teaching activities of First and Second Cycle Degree Programmes. Three university structures exist alongside these:
- Ca' Foscari Graduate School, which coordinates Research Doctorates;
- Ca’ Foscari Challenge School, which organises Specialist Master’s Programmes (1st and 2nd level) and other courses for continuing education;
- Ca’ Foscari School for International Education which promotes intensive summer and autumn courses and other extracurricular activities for Italian and international students.
Ca’ Foscari University of Venice also offers English-taught programmes and double/joint degrees, which along with numerous cooperation agreements with European and extra-European institutions and universities, enrich the international focus that has always been a feature of the university, increasing the mobility of students, researchers and professors.
Skills in the fields of teaching, research and innovation are integrated by a wide cultural programme, thanks to a busy calendar of conventions, exhibitions, film, theatre and radio dates, aimed both at Ca’ Foscari community and the entire world.
