We are very proud to announce that Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) has been ranked “the highest new entry” (no. 273 out of 1002), alongside the University of Arizona (USA), in the world ranking of universities by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). USI’s main distinguishments are due to the internationality of its students and academic staff.

Since its founding in 2013, the UNESCO Chair is deeply linked with the University. For instance, the university offers a Master in International Tourism, run by the Faculty of Economics in collaboration with the Faculty of Communication Sciences. The UNESCO Chair is deeply involved in this Master, through teaching, research, internships, and theses opportunities.
