The Wellness & WellBeing Department at the European School of Economics in Florence takes inspiration from Elio D’Anna’s belief that “the healthier your ideas the wealthier your life and the world around you – Health is Wealth’. According to Elio D’Anna’s philosophy, there is a strong connection between individual well-being, health, success and prosperity of business and the economy. The mission of this department is to increase awareness regarding personal health and wellness among young people.

The financial and economic issues related to individual and work-related illness will be considered and you will learn how to integrate nutritional information, physical fitness, stress management, environmental sensitivity and self-responsibility. We will explore strategies to reduce fatigue, lower stress and heighten well-being and efficiency in order to shape a personal and professional environment. As future business leaders, you will learn how to structure business and corporate approaches to incorporate health promotion and wellness.

Combining these basic principles and ESE’s philosophy, the purpose of the ESE Wellness & WellBeing department is to provide a new approach to the wellness industry and economy, providing support (mentoring and coaching) and professional acumen to become visionary leaders, pragmatic managers or consultants, wellness professionals and most of all successful entrepreneurs in all fields of the global wellness and well-being market.
