GESAM is an international Master of Ca’ Foscari University in collaboration with International Labour Organization - ILO of Geneva. The main purpose of the Master is to provide the instruments to comprehend the main global scenarios through studying economic and legal disciplines. GESAM not only is addressed to italian new graduates, but also to international students as evidenced by the experience of Alissa, who is an USA student who decided to attend the Master in Italy. GESAM allows you to acquire managerial skills in order to promote a sustainable development both in terms of economics and social sphere and it is focused on helping students to confront themselves with features of socioeconomic backgrounds and at the same time to promote effective actions of decision making.

 

Interview with Gianluca, student of GESAM


1) Why did you choose GESAM Master?

I chose GESAM Master for different reasons, first of all I chose it for its organization, which is close to Anglo-Saxon Arts/Sciences Masters, that connects professional functions and traditional academic part thanks to lessons’ organization and curricular internships. This type of structure allows you to choose your academic course, evaluating professional aptitudes and inclinations through exploration of different subjects and lecturers teaching. The curricular internship could be attended at important partner organizations where it is possible to put into practice skills acquired during academic period, enhancing your cultural background with significant work experiences in public or private organizations (foundations, research centers, NGO, international organizations, companies). I must also say that my choice is based on partnership between GESAM Master and ILO, which is an UN organization I have long admired.

 

2) Do you think it was useful to attend the Master in English?

Yes, I think. In my opinion it was important to opt for English language because of job opportunities and subjects introduced by GESAM Master. In addition, if you consider the international nature of courses, students and lecturers, it is fundamental to use English.

 

3) The Master GESAM faculty is composed of university professors, experts from NGO’s and both National and International Institutions, along with experts in social, economic and law fields. Could you please share with us the best souvenir of your education received in the classroom?

I believe that the high quality of teaching and lecturers is the key element of the Master because every student had the possibility to meet professional academic figures who have proved to be willing and open in talking about different subjects. The academic debate produced cultural exchanges that would differ from traditional lesson thanks to its unique feature in education. These experiences will always remain in my memory (I would like to give a suggestion for who wants to attend the Master: do not be shy or lazy during lessons but express your idea because it will be appreciated).

 

4) How has the Summer School experience in Geneva been?

It was incredible. The 3-days study visit at headquarters of ILO allows you to explore the organization’s fundamental plans (International Labour Standards, Social Dialogue, Child Labour, Sustainable Development, Employment Policies, Occupational Safety and Health, etc.) through meetings with officials and managers of every departments. It is wrong to think that these meetings are a small part in the Master’s programme because these activities engaged us directly, testing our theoretical skills in relation to ILO activities. In addition, the Summer School give you the possibility to visit the Palace of Nations and the headquarters of the World Trade Organization.

 

5) GESAM offers to student the possibility to do an internship in different realities, in Italy or abroad, in NGOs, Research Centers, Enterprises, Banks, and Institutions, thus building a personalized proposal for each student. How is / has been your internship experience?

My curricular internship took place at FEEM – Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei in Milan. During my experience, I was able to take part in activities organized by international networks, e.g. SDSN (Sustainable Development Solutions Network). In addition, I took part in a research project about financing instruments of infrastructure energy projects in Sub-saharan Africa and about the implications of these projects in relation to African economics, especially in terms of fighting against poverty, employment and energy access for rural communities. This research became the basic point of my thesis for the obtention of Master’s diploma.  

 

6) To whom would you suggest the enrollment to GESAM Master?

To whom who wants to acquire important instruments to work in international cooperation and backgrounds; it is necessary to have a basic knowledge about economic and political processes that characterize current reality.

 

7) What are you working at now?

I have been working as an intern in the Employment Policy and in the Analysis all’International Training Centre of ILO in Turin for few months; I’m dedicating myself to detailed study of national employment policy and development of key areas of emerging economies, especially the Sub-saharan Africa background.
