Mission and history

The University of Rome Unitelma Sapienza is the only on-line Italian university that is maintained by a consortium composed of public enterprise and directly linked to the best Italian public university: the University of Rome "La Sapienza", with 130,000 students and a staff of 4,000 teachers and researchers.

Unitelma Sapienza, through the use of advanced information technology and methodologies in distance learning, promotes access to higher education, without the constraints of space, time, providing services to students and workers out of office, who are unable to attend regular educational activities. Teaching, training and research within the campus, combine the necessary economic, managerial and legal knowledge required to manage complex business within the "information society"

Unitelma Sapienza pays particular attention to the development of research, in particular within scientific and economic sectors as well as in management of information technology, with particular attention to theories, models, processes, technologies and applications for the development of a virtual campus through Internet in higher education.

A special focus is given to tutoring: we have tutors concerned with academic activities and tutors that are mainly concerned with the motivation and the achievement of career goals of the student. Both of these figures are meant to increase interactivity with students for a more cooperative learning.
