MIP Personal development is one-of-a-kind program and is dedicated to providing a highly personalized service to each International MBA student.
MIP Politecnico di Milano places much importance on the practical and interactive aspects of learning and students are given the invaluable experience of working alongside key stakeholders within important organizations, allowing them to be challenged in real-life business situations.
The Personal Development path aims at improving personal and professional soft skills through:
- analysis of the potential self
- development of strengths and competences
- identification of personal and professional short and long term goals
All students are strongly encouraged to realize their potential in order to achieve a high level of personal excellence, by using all the learning opportunities, both formal and informal, that the MBA program offers: Guest speakers and Lecturers, Experiential Events, Workshops, Filmed Presentations, Company Visits, peer-to-peer and peer-group evaluations, etc.
Students are provided with useful feedback and guidance, and further encouraged by the close-knit group environment of the class, which serves to ensure that each individual reaches the highest possible level of development possible.
The International MBA experience is in itself a great opportunity for personal and professional growth and Personal Development is a key program component. The Personal Development (PD) sequence runs throughout the MBA and is closely linked to the work of the Career Service. The activities carried out by PD support the academic component of the course through assisting students in acquiring the skills needed for applying the classroom-learnt conceptual models and to continue independently with their lifelong learning.
"One of the most interesting experiences during my MBA was going for 3 days with my colleagues to Monterosa (a mountain over 4,000 mts high), to have our outdoor-training. This activity facilitated our integration, improved relationships and communication among us.During the group work it was nice to see how team performance increased as the team had a common objective, and the members pushed in the same direction. We needed to share information, support ourselves, make important decisions, share resources, create synergies and deal with difficult environmental conditions. Things that managers do in their everyday work!!"
