MIP: Where Technology meets management
MIP was born in 1979 as a collaboration between Politecnico di Milano - Italy's premier institute of science and technology - and some leading organizations operating in Italy. Politecnico di Milano has a strong engineering tradition and technology leadership which allows MIP access to up-and-coming technology, to play a key role in innovation and to be at the forefront of company growth and technological investment .
Global degrees for a global village
MIP's International MBA program is a full-time program taught entirely in English by Politecnico di Milano professors and a vast international faculty. Past professors have come from Harvard Business School, MIT Boston, University of Leuven and Arizona State University etc. Class sizes are small with an optimal student/teacher ratio and roughly 70% of the class is international.
The MBA program provides the special mix of technical and management skills required to develop and lead world-class companies in a range of sectors, from operations and manufacturing to design and luxury management.
MIP's Career Service is one of a kind
Students are given the unique opportunity to work alongside key stakeholders within important organizations, challenging themselves in real-life business situations. Activities, such as Organizational Check Up, Business Plan, Business Game and Project work, take place throughout the program and are real consulting projects within companies, consulting firms or banks. Our Personal Development and Career Service office provides assistance throughout the program and during the recruitment process in the form of professional orientation interviews, evaluation of individual student's skills and personalized counseling etc.
