Despite AUR's smaller size, it has the very best that Rome can offer. I spent 2.5 years at AUR and only wish I could have spent more time there. I was a transfer student and the transfer process was extremely easy. The housing was a bit expensive, but was near the campus and the campus is perfectly located right near Trastevere and the city center (all within walking distance and easily accessible by public transit, too). The classes were varied in offering and rewarding. Being located in Rome, the university offered weekend trips around Europe that gave you academic credit which is something no American university could do! The administration was very helpful with visa paperwork, immigration issues, housing, Italian/English translations, etc. The student body comes from a wide array of nations/religions which made learning even more enjoyable inside and outside the classroom. Library was small. They also offer some work positions for students which was a nice way to earn some money.

I transferred to AUR my junior year and it was the best 2 years of my life- both academically and experience wise.
Living in the beautiful city of Rome, while being taught by passionate professors, and surrounding yourself with international students is an experience that is once-in-a-lifetime!
Highly recommended for anyone who is willing to go out of their comfort zone and learn the most about themselves!
AUR Business program is one that highly rewarding, learned through case studies and very practical approach- especially with the Capstone and thesis experience!
AUR Business Club is an amazing opportunity to learn hands-on experience running a real merchandising business!
AUR will forever hold a special place in my heart!
I transferred from the American University in Cairo (AUC) to the American University of Rome (AUR) and graduated from AUR with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) in 2015. Honestly, I believe it was the best decision of my life to move to Rome and be among one of the most diverse student bodies in the world - the school had over 50 nationalities. Even though AUR's campus was smaller than AUC's, I loved how charming it was, overlooking beautiful Rome. It allows you to connect with almost everyone - family-spirited campus, what I like to call it.

The professors come from strong academic backgrounds and the classes are not packed with students, allowing each professor to know you personally. Focusing mainly on the Business Faculty, all the professors have a mission to make you achieve what you want with your life - especially with the nerve-racking part of developing your CV or applying to different jobs through their career office.
