Why School of Innovation

The School of Innovation leverages the very best of the University of Trento and external professionals to provide all Learners with the tools and the skills to become a more impactful entrepreneur, employee, instructor or professional.

The traditional university didactic offer is often limited by disciplinary boundaries. In order to enrich the present academic offer and respond to the ongoing economic and societal changes, the University of Trento has launched the School of Innovation (SOI) as a strategic project in 2016.

Ever since, innovative teaching, flexible and interdisciplinary education as well as attention to the emerging needs of students in terms of soft skills and employability have been its driving models.
