Beginning in 2015-2016, the Department of Business and Management requires first-year master’s degree students to register for a four-credit ERS (Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability) Lab.
Students are required to participate in an ERS Lab during the II semester of the I year, (February-May, 2017) or in July 2016 for those who choose a volunteer program.
Through ERS Labs, students will learn about increasingly relevant themes related to Ethics, Responibility and Sustainability, obtaining a sense of awareness, solidarity and social responsibility. Participants will also develop important skills for their resumes, including leadership, teamwork, communication and negotiation.

- To receive credits, students must attend a minimum number of course hours and pass a final evaluation (pass/fail), chosen by the instructor based on course goals.
- For Skill-a-bus courses, given the program format, only attendance will be considered. Students must attend 80% of the total course hours to obtain credits.
- A tutor will take attendance through signatures. Students who do not sign in will be considered absent. No exceptions will be made.
- Students may miss entire lessons or selected hours based on their personal needs.
- Students may choose ERS Labs independently of the language of their degree program. Students registered for English-language programs may choose to register for ERS Labs offered only in Italian and vice-versa, provided that the course is not offered in the language of their degree program. However, if the ERS Lab is offered in both languages, students will be automatically registered for the language of their degree program. All Management students will be registered for the English version of Skill-a-bus and Case Analysis and Business Games.
- Once students have chosen a course, they may not earn ERS credits in any other way.
- Courses will only run if the minimum 15 participants.
- Each course has a registration cap. Students are accepted on a chronological basis.
- Students will be divided into groups by alphabetical order, it is not possible to choose a group.
- All activities take place Monday afternoon and Tuesday. Eight-hour lessons (9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.) have a one-hour lunch break at 1:00 p.m.
First-year master’s students in the Department of Business and Management in 2016-2017 must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from December 13-December 20, 2015, with their name, surname, matriculation number and the selected program.
Please note that requests sent outside of this period will not be taken into consideration. Those who do not select a program will be assigned one.
