"Know, know how to be, know how to do." It is on these three cornerstones that I.U.L.M. University has based its teaching mission, taking inspiration from the principles of UNESCO. Taking strength from its vocation of integrating cultural knowledge and professional competences, the University has, from its very inception over 40 years ago, always presented itself as a meeting point between the academic world and labor markets.
The Istituto Universitario di Lingue Moderne (I.U.L.M.) was founded in 1968 by the Fondazione Scuola Superiore per Interpreti e Traduttori, under the inspiration of Senator Carlo Bo and Professor Silvio Baridon. From the beginning, the idea behind the project was to satisfy the labor markets' demands based on analyses of current trends.
I.U.L.M., as it was then known, concentrated its attention on the study of languages, an indispensable requirement for entering increasingly international markets and contexts focused on enhancing arts and culture markets.
The University was the first in Italy to perceive how the world of communication and the consumer society was evolving. Consequently, it saw the need to update its courses by providing a specific series of tools. It is in this period that it founds the Scuola Speciale di Relazioni Pubbliche.
The decade that marks the definitive strengthening of the University's position in the field of communication: the Faculty of Communication and Entertainment Studies is set up alongside the University's first Faculty of Foreign languages and Literature. In 1998 the University took on its current name: Libera Università di Lingue e Comunicazione I.U.L.M.
The mission of I.U.L.M. University is to train and teach professionals capable of taking on the challenges and grasping the opportunities emerging from international markets and scenarios, while also shaping men and women aware of their being and worth.
I.U.L.M. guarantees its student's deep cultural awareness and solid university education - a mix of theory and practice: it adopts an integrated approach, which has proved to be extremely useful not only in helping students successfully enter the world of work but also in helping them find personal satisfaction in their lives.
I.U.L.M. University has always seen itself as a pioneer: over the years, it has been able to foresee trends and adapt to change, operating as a dynamic interlocutor in a constantly evolving system. Today it is a well-established institution in the socioeconomic mechanisms of its area of influence: a privileged condition that allows it to approach relevant non-academic bodies and institutions to propose joint projects that can produce added value for teaching and research.
Over 240,000 volumes, more than 1,300 periodicals, and around 56,000 films, documentaries, and language courses. At the I.U.L.M. libraries, you can consult and borrow material for your research projects, your studies, or only for your enjoyment. A made-to-measure service for students.
