Unlocking future opportunities: Monaco to host world renowned institutions at Foreign Universities Forum

Foreign Universities Forum

The upcoming Foreign Universities Forum of Monaco will offer local students a thoroughly international perspective on potential places of learning as well as possible future career paths. Here’s everything you need to know about the event. 

On 17th April at the Auditorium Rainier III, a diverse selection of top international universities and business schools will converge for the very first Foreign Universities Forum of Monaco (FUEM).

Held under the High Patronage of Prince Albert II, and organised by a coalition of the Monaco Parents’ Association, the Learning in Action association and Gargano Education, with input from the Mairie de Monaco, the forum will offer high school students the opportunity to explore a range of academic and career paths, from digital innovation to global business management degrees.

At least 15 universities, higher education establishments and business schools have already signed up to attend, with each bringing their unique strengths and specialisations to the table.

Among the more local institutions set to participate is the International University of Monaco (IUM), renowned for its business programmes, Nice’s EDHEC business school and Besign, the sustainable design school in Cagnes-sur-Mer.

Further enriching the forum are institutions such as H-FARM College of Treviso, which will be presenting its cutting-edge programmes in digital business and management, including cybersecurity, AI and data science. Modul University from Vienna, meanwhile, will share information on its data science and management courses.

The forum will also appeal to students considering a future in areas such as the liberal arts, science, engineering, law, international affairs and hospitality, with schools such as the IE University of Madrid and the Vives University of Applied Sciences from Bruges both featuring on the list.

Plenty of additional universities await discovery at the event, which will be entirely free to attend for students in Secondary, First and Terminale classes in the region.

The event will be taking place between 9am and 7pm.
