ISTAO WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1967 AS A STUDY INSTITUTE FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF ECONOMY AND BUSINESSES, BASED ON THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC VISION OF ADRIANO OLIVETTI
ISTAO founded by the Economist Giorgio Fuà is a Business School based on two main objectives: dissemination of economic culture and development of entrepreneurship as a moral commitment and an operative capacity force. The accomplishment of these objectives is reached through different activities: training, studies and researchers, an organization of seminars, conferences, meetings, a panel that deal with the main economic, social and educational issues in the international context.
ISTAO AIMS AT DEVELOPING A SPECIFIC MODEL OF ENTREPRENEUR: THE ENTREPRENEUR CULTURALLY AND CIVILLY ENGAGED
Specifically, the entrepreneur-leader who considers as his own mission that of training, guiding, developing a group of people making them feel involved in a common creative experience of which to feel proud of.
The Charter of Values of ISTAO is based on:
- Competence and knowledge
- Advanced Training
- Ethics and Respect
- Social Intelligence
- Entrepreneurship mindset
- Social Vision.
ISTAO’s goal, thus, consists in promoting a new figure of entrepreneur: not only good “organizers of productive activities but also capable of making collaborators fond of their work, providing them with an objective.
