UNINETTUNO has made of internationalization one of its most relevant strategies. The process of internationalization developed and keeps on developing through two models that differ greatly from one another. The former one is characterized by a totally new phenomenon and is connected to the Internet: the Net users explore and select information and services available on the Web, making choices that are mainly in function of their own interests.
It is the users themselves who give value to the "hubs of the Net", held more interesting and worthy to be suggested and recommended to their own social network.
It is thanks to this spontaneous mechanism of networked and global word-of-mouth that, in a few years, the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO succeeded in having among its own enrolled students people coming from 168 different countries of the world, thus giving a truly global character to its own identity.
The second internationalization mode is based, instead, on international agreements with universities and ministries of several countries across the world with the purpose of creating, harmonizing and sharing their curricula.
In the process of establishment of a study curriculum, UNINETTUNO makes reference to the guidelines derived from the Bologna and Sorbonne Processes as regards the organization of the study levels and the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) for structuring the curricula. The agreements entered up to now and currently in force are with universities and research centers of the following countries: in Europe (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Vatican City, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Kosovo, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Spain, UK etc.), in the United States, in Latin America (Colombia, Ecuador), in Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Somalia, Tunisia), in Asia (China, Hong Kong, Mongolia, Singapore), in Russia, in the Arab Emirates (Dubai), in Iraq.
Dialogue among cultures is not a utopia, but it is actually possible: with UNINETTUNO we succeeded indeed in creating new alliances among universities and educational institutions to jointly develop real and virtual places and building shared knowledge networks.
