AN OUTSTANDING FACULTY IN A LOVELY PLACE
CAPRI, 7 – 11 SEPTEMBER, 2020
+ Countries Represented
The course was good, the faculty even better, and the candidates the best. My research will involve a lot of qualitative methods, and my past life as an engineer has been thoroughly number driven so it was a great few days for me to learn and understand perspectives from a qualitative lens. The group work was helpful in understanding other people's research projects and methods, but more importantly it gave me a few good pointers that I plan to use in my own research. The opportunity to build a network, with all the participants and faculty, is an intangible that has huge potential. Overall, a great initiative I hope the summer school is a regular fixture in the academic calendar! Great job!
I had a very interesting and developing experience! The lectures gave new insights as well as being thought provoking - the content was really engaging. A major benefit of the course was how well the students were integrated into the discussions, creating a fruitful space for discussions.

I really enjoyed the II edition of Capri Summer School. The subjects of the lessons were very interesting and all the Professors offered us a lot of triggers for stimulating discussions. During the stage period I had the chance to get in touch with students from around the world and to exchange opinions about research themes. I think it was a very formative and useful experience.

Participation at Aidea Summer School has been a challenging experience. The lectures held by internationally renowned professors from the best European universities allowed me to explore the concepts of research methodology in management studies. The International context has proved being an amazing place where to exchange ideas and opinions
The Capri Summer School was a wonderful experience. Not only is it in a fantastic location, but the programme was very rigorous, and the academic staff were inspirational. I feel that the course was incredibly useful for me, it has certainly helped me to develop and clarify my thinking around methodological issues that I will face as part of my PhD, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone else who is using qualitative research methods.
Capri Aidea Summer School offers an unique experience in different ways.It enables participants to get new insights and understand different perspectives in a relaxed atmosphere, which is very helpful at the beginning of the career. Nevertheless, also the timing in September is great, and the venue itself is fantastic, as Capri is one of the most beautiful parts of the world, definitively worth visiting and Villa Orlandi offers an amazing view over the area. I am thankful to get the possibility to join the Aidea Capri Summer School 2014, and wish the organizers all the best in fulfilling the mission of the Capri Summer School in years to come.
My experience at the AIDEA Capri Summer school has been amazing. It has been both academically enriching and personally rewarding. The school has greatly extended the breadth of my knowledge on qualitative studies and has provided me a chance to interact and discuss my research with academics from different Universities. In addition, the range of social activities offered by the Summer school and the isle of Capri has been astounding. Therefore, I would recommend the AIDEA Capri Summer school wholeheartedly to any management scholar that is looking for a great learning experience while enjoying an international and relaxing environment with plenty to do and see.
Thanks to a faculty that was very knowledgeable, responsive and inspiring, the summer school was a rewardinging experience for all participants, regardless of how far we had come in our research process. The lectures and group sessions contributed both to a deeper understanding of qualitative research in general and to each and everyone's own thesis work. Discussions continued until long after lecture hours, as we all gathered for mingles and dinners in the lovely September nights of Capri.
The Capri Summer School has been an excellent experience for me. The programme was interesting and the issues discussed during the lectures are key for Ph.D. students. The internationality of the class and the group works contribute immediately to build a cross-cultural knowledge, indeed a lot can be learnt besides the inspiring content of the lectures. Another bright side, which cannot be ignored, is that you are able to learn in a wonderful place as Capri. In a nutshell, I'm happy that I had the opportunity to participate to the second edition of the School and I can only recommend it to other prospective applicants.
Villa Orlandi welcomes you.
