Thinking about taking your classroom to Italy?

La Bella Italia provides the perfect framework for faculty-led programs for almost any academic field.

In Florence, the heart of Renaissance, you could study art and architecture while visiting the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery.

In Milan, a fashion capital of the world, the newly-opened Fondazione Prada can be experienced before enjoying some time at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.

In “The Eternal City” history students can trace the Roman Empire by visiting the Coliseum and other well-preserved ancient ruins.

And the lagoon city Venice of course offers countless possibilities not only of interest to hospitality and tourism management students. While savoring delicious food at an Italian open-air market, a cooking class or tasting session at a local winery or dairy, program participants can sense the Italian vitality.

We are full of ideas to make your Italian experience unforgettable. Contact us and request a customized proposal for your faculty-led program!

Stephen Notaro, University of Illinois
(The Italian Health System):

“Honestly, when I started this course I had a bad experience with another provider and was resistant to using one. I was told CEPA was good last year and thought I’d give you a try. I have been EXTREMELY SATISFIED with the high quality work you do, the processes, your preparation, and how we keep it affordable for students. I am thankful for your work and doubt this trip would happen with anyone else.”

Start preparing for faculty-led 2017 and beyond!

A successful faculty-led experience is based on an organized planning process, professional expertise and logistics, and a well-thought out itinerary. We will work with you on a personal level, every step of the way.

Our team is small enough to be able to offer you personalized support, yet large enough to provide you with a wide range of programming options and locations.

10th anniversary of Humber at the CEPA Study Center Chateau du Pourtales

For 10 years, Humber College (School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism) and CEPA Europe have been running a semester abroad program in Strasbourg, France open to students with a major/minor in Culinary Management, Hospitality Management, Tourism Management, and Tourism & Hospitality Management.

During the program students reside at the historic Chateau de Portales and complete seven weeks of classroom instruction. Weekly field trips are taken to breweries, wineries, patisseries, hotels and attractions around France, including Paris.

After 10 years, we feel very honored to have this relationship with the people at Humber College. Together, we work hard to continously improve the program in order to make it an excellent opportunity for their students to connect their classroom learning with real-world experience.

“The experience and CEPA changed our lives! That’s the truth.

Our family will always have the unbelievable memories to hold onto for the rest of our lives. We are so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to experience Europe. I truly cannot think of a day that goes by where our trip doesn’t touch us in some way. Whether we are looking at some of the artwork we brought back or singing our own kugelhopf song or Skyping Biggi or looking at our photos, smiles our brought to our faces each and every time.

Thank you Uli for all that you and your team provide to EVERYONE who graces the Chateau’s doors and CEPA’s programs.

WOOHOO HUMBER and CEPA!!!!

And thank you for letting me, my family and so many of us over the past 10 glorious years enjoy the ride!!!!”

All our love,
Kristy, Brent, Carter (12) and Griffin (9)
