Envision your future career in Milano

Palazzo Giureconsulti
Piazza Mercanti 2

When students choose Milano for higher education, they're likely to stay afterwards for an internship or a job experience. But it's not easy to start a business or get hired by a company, especially for those who are not familiar with the local environment. Important aspects to consider are to gain insight into the local job market and network with like-minded individuals.

In an informal roundtable you will get to know other international students or graduates who are already working/training in the city. They will share their experience with you and give you practical peer-to-peer advice on how to navigate the intricacies of finding employment or starting a business in Milano.


The event will be hosted at Palazzo Giureconsulti, piazza Mercanti 2, Milano, 6pm - 7.30pm. 

The events will promptly start at 6 pm, with registration from 5.45 pm.
