LUISS graduate Edoardo Corriere has received a master’s degree in Governance and Global Affairs after completing the LUISS-MGIMO Double Degree.
In 2013, Edoardo began his career at LUISS with the bachelor’s program in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, "in order to study in English and for my interest in international relations." After completing the Orientation Summer School before his final year of high school, Edoardo understood that LUISS was the University that was best suited for his needs.”
As soon as possible, Edoardo took advantage of every chance to study abroad. At the end of his second year, he participated in the Stanford Summer Term thanks to the cooperation with the American university. “It was an incredible two months. I met people from all over the world and was challenged by high-level courses.”
Once back in Italy, Edoardo soon left for France where he participated in the Erasmus program with Science Po in Paris. “It was important for me to attend a university that was renowned for my field of studies. There I was exposed to new teaching methods which required new methods of study.”
Following his experience in France, Edoardo completed his thesis with Professor Michele Sorice and began preparation for the LUISS-MGIMO Double Degree. “I was attracted by the opportunity to earn two degrees in two years. I was especially interested in the Russian university as I had studied the language in my first years at LUISS.”
“LUISS has so many partner universities and I think that students really need to take advantage of these collaborations to constantly test themselves,” states the graduate.
While in Moscow, Edoardo performed an internship with ENEL Russia in the External Affairs and Sustainability Office, where he worked in public relations and event planning. The experience was gratifying on both the personal and professional levels. “It was my first contact with the working world, at times it was difficult but it was definitely worth it.”
Edoardo then completed his thesis, entitled Energy Diplomacy Between Russia and the United States with Professor Leonardo Morlino. Thanks to help from the professor, Edoardo went to New York to do research with International Idea, an organization that works closely with the United Nations to promote democracy.
Reflecting on his career, Edoardo is grateful to LUISS for all the experiences the University has offered him. “In the future, I would like to stay in Italy and I am sure that LUISS will help me make my first steps into the job market.”
