The Italian economist, Lucrezia Reichlin, who has led the project since its inception, conceived the idea for the Ortygia Business School.
The feasibility study, completed by Value Partners, was financed by ENEL, Italcementi, ST -Microelectronics, GE Avio.
Initial support for the project was provided by Banca Nazionale del Lavoro-BNP, Deutsche Bank Italy, Unicredit Banking Group.
The project is now finalizing its start-up phase, focusing on fund-raising. There is an opportunity for a small group of companies to become strategic partners of the School: making a significant contribution to the start-up financing and having direct input to the design of the educational and research program, and becoming permanently associated with the school itself. To discuss this opportunity, please contact us.
