From 1 September 2020, Bologna Business School will resume its teaching activities at the Villa Guastavillani headquarters and will expand temporarily in Hall 15 of the Bologna Fair, to ensure the return of all students in maximum safety.
During the press conference, the BBS Dean Massimo Bergami and the President of BolognaFiere Gianpiero Calzolari presented the project that will allow the participants of the BBS advanced training masters to continue the educational activities in attendance until next December.
A solution that includes 8 classrooms to accommodate at least 370 participants and students, 11 breakout rooms and spaces reserved for staff and teachers within an area that can normally accommodate up to 10,000 people. The distance between one person and another is more than two meters, to guarantee the distance greater than that required by law. The moments of sharing and socializing will be preserved by the semicircle arrangement of the classroom furnishings and by a central arena as the fulcrum of the pavilion that recalls the squares of our cities, places of aggregation par excellence.
The project was born from the desire to resume activities, in full safety, in full compliance with current regulations, also keeping some more margins.
BBS believes that physical presence and the relationship between people is a central component of learning; for this reason, it has decided to invest resources to offer this new possibility to Italian and international students and to managers of companies attending master executives. “This is a different choice than many international business schools that have chosen to remain online until mid-2021 or other Italian business schools that will offer participants mixed modes or alternate presence.
A solution that combines the safety and quality of the training experience, thanks to the teaching technologies and the services that will be available at the Fair. “A new way to network through the meeting of subjects from different fields who find common understandings to face new situations with originality”, added Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiere.
“Bologna Business School reacts in many ways to this emergency, protects the health of its people and looks forward to building the future together”.
