        Compares quite favorably to other, more expensive programs

        Honestly, for my degree in International Relations this was the place to do it. Professors in all disciplines had exemplary credentials and I really enjoyed my time there. Seeing the number of prestigious universities sending their students here for semester credits says a lot about John Cabot University's educational qualities. And, oh, yeah, did I mention it's a really great place to live? You just can't beat Rome for being fun to explore.
