What are the cultural values that underlie Italian businesses in the metropolitan areas of New York and New Jersey?
What class-related projects have the ability to demonstrate to students the professional relevance of Italian Studies today?

In Fall 2014, students at Montclair State University had the unique opportunity to participate in a project entitled “Business Italian Style,” whose main goal was to actively link the study of Italian language and culture to local Made-in-Italy businesses. Given the success of this initiative (over 100,000 views for the articles and the videos), the Inserra Chair and the Italian Program have launched “Business Italian Style 2,” this time with a specific focus on Made in Italy and Food. The semester-long project was developed within the ITA321 Business Italian course taught by Dr. Enza Antenos.
