"It is always a great satisfaction to be confirmed, and to grow, in this comprehensive ranking covering different areas of our activity and to see that we are recognized both on the academic front and on the market (with the reputation among recruiters)," comments Stefano Caselli, Dean for International Affairs. "In the Social Sciences and Management broad subject area, it should be noted, we confirm our first place in continental Europe, below only the British universities LSE, Oxford and Cambridge".
