Università IULM - Milan

Università IULM - Milan

The mission of Università IULM is to train professionals who are able to face the challenges and seize the opportunities that emerge from the markets and international scenarios, but it is also to shape men and women who are aware of themselves and their own value.

Top reasons to study here

  • Well rooted in the socio-economic mechanisms of its surroundings: a valuable condition that allows it to approach important non-academic bodies.
  • IULM guarantees its students a complete cultural background and a solid preparation, a mix of theory and practical experience.
  • Università IULM has always been a pioneer: over the years, it has anticipated trends and adapted to changes, acting as a dynamic force.



The University was founded in 1968 by the Fondazione Scuola Superiore per Interpreti e Traduttori, on the initiative of Senator Carlo Bo and Professor Silvio Baridon, as a University Institute of Modern Languages (I.U.L.M.). From the outset, the idea was to meet the needs of the labour market on the basis of an analysis of current trends.


The project that animates the activities of Università IULM is like a virtuous circle: the same elements recur at different times, but from time to time they appear enriched. Over the years, IULM's funding has increased steadily, including the provision of scholarships, research grants and doctoral grants, but also the recruitment and training of young scholars.


The key element is research, a starting point, which preludes the development of the educational opportunities, but also of arrival, for the graduates who carry it out and for the companies that benefit from it in the immediate future. The attention that IULM devotes to research is an important sign of consistency, which has its confirmation in the many works completed and in progress: works ranging from corporate communication to that of politics, from anthropology to fashion. A laboratory in continuous evolution that always produces new resources: not only for the University itself, but also for society in general, for institutions and businesses.

Student Life

Campus life

Università IULM has 210 beds distributed in two university residences, Santander and Cascina Moncucco.

  • Santander: On the outside, the building of IULM residence is characterised by the presence of exposed brick walls, and by the institutional colours of the university. On the inside there are two main areas: one strictly residential while another one for services and entertainment.
  •  Cascina Moncucco: Already present in the seventeenth-century maps of the land registry, Cascina Moncucco has represented, for many years, like other farms in Milan, an area of urban decay despite having enormous potential for recovery in terms of the culture and landscape for the surrounding area.

The university offers good quality courses with professors with an incredible background. There are often conferences with teachers coming from other universities from Europe and the United States. The courses are very innovative and in line with communication trends.
