DA Siena can informally take the function of a "bank" in Italy. We have found it particularly practical for Institutions to be able to pre-pay expenses to the school. DA Siena uses the funds to pay for expenses such as bus rentals, bus passes, group dinners, tickets to museums, cultural events, activities, etc. If plans change, the funds will be used for the new event or simply reimbursed to your account. Your faculty may also receive cash advances. Rest assured that our staff will meet with your faculty on an regular basis to discuss the budget and balance in the account.
If your institution does not want or is not able to send a director abroad don't worry! Our highly-specialized director that has over 20 years of experience will run your program according to your wishes and standards. The DA Siena Director will provide leadership and oversight of the academic programs. This position is responsible for a wide range of academic, budgetary, administration, and student support services.
