Spend a Month Studying in Northern Italy and Traveling Europe this Summer and Earn Six Credits

The CIMBA summer program offers you the opportunity to spend four weeks in Paderno del Grappa, Italy with students and professors from around the world. While you complete your coursework, you will enhance your international education through company tours, afternoon cultural excursions, field trips, a gourmet Italian meal, and two extended travel weekends.

Take Intercultural Communication, Mythology, Marketing, and More.

CIMBA can help you get ahead by earning six credits in our summer courses, all of which are taught in English. We pride ourselves on offering courses that will successfully transfer back to your home institution. In many cases, you can take the same course at CIMBA that you had planned to take at your home institution.  View our upcoming course offerings

Immerse Yourself in the Italian Culture, Climb Mt. Grappa, and Make Pizzas with Local Entrepreneurs.

On afternoons when you do not have class, you can sign up for cultural excursions in and around Paderno del Grappa, such as hiking and exploring on Mt. Grappa, tossing a pizza at the local pizzeria, and visiting Asolo – listed in the book 1000 Things to See Before You Die. Check out more about our cultural exploration program and CIMBA’s picturesque location.

Explore Italy and Europe. Designed for First Time and Seasoned Travelers.

During the summer, you will enjoy two long-weekends and one regular weekend to explore Italy and Europe. Travel is entirely independent, so you can decide where you want to go, who you want to go with, and how you will get there. First time traveling? No problem! Our experienced staff will help you plan to get to Italy and once you arrive, we will teach you how to plan travel through Europe. Want to travel before or after your CIMBA experience? Many of our students do! You have the freedom to travel independently before and after the program.

Students from All Majors are Welcome!

Our summer program attracts students from all majors including those who want core business, engineering, journalism, and communication studies courses, or those who wish to earn general elective credit.

Have a Summer Internship Set Up Back Home? No problem!

Due to the short duration of the summer program, many of our summer students are able to pursue an internship or job back home for the remainder of the summer.
