Great attention will be paid to the field of digital transformation, and the opportunities that will arise from this, to encourage an attitude of change.
“We see digital transformation as a mindset – explains Paolo Boccardelli, Dean of Luiss Business School – the main path to follow to implement our mission. In this scenario digitalization conquers the role of a key dimension, thus enabling the innovation of the teaching methods adopted, to strengthen the learning experience of our students. The Luiss Business School ethos is strongly committed to contribute to the FOME vision and mission due to their strong alignment with our School’s philosophy”.
Collaboration is a pillar of the Luiss Business School experience.

This enables the creation of learning environments that equip students with the deeper knowledge and skills to participate in today's economy, as well as to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives.
As a FOME member, Luiss Business School will support the development and sharing of the international network, taking up leadership in its growth strategy through a collaborative and proactive approach.
