Candidates will gain the knowledge and understanding of basic business concepts and management functions like marketing, finance, human resource management, supply chain, innovation and project management, digital transformation & business law. These core topics will be delivered completely online using our advanced digital learning platform.

Candidates will attend face to face lectures with world class faculty and industry experts to further deepen their understanding of topics covered in the phase. This part of the program involves putting the concepts learnt in the Digital Basics phase into practice during business cases and practical assignments involving complex, cross-functional and multi-industry problems.

The Management Bootcamps are designed to offer practical learning modules which are organized by company officials and industry experts. This phase will allow candidates to put into practice what they have learnt theoretically in the previous phases and get into direct contact with experienced managers and top level executives to learn how to solve complex real world problems inside companies.
The Management Bootcamp will allow candidates to learn about emerging management topics under the mentorship of industry experts and company officials from the MBA partner companies and several other companies in the corporate network of MIP. Candidates will work on 7 different bootcamps based on a range of emerging topics in business which they can also club together with an optional Silicon Valley Experience.

This phase is organized in two parts:
Developing Your Advanced Skills (1 week each)
The Advanced skills courses are transversal in nature giving a cross functional view of business.

  • Business Planning and Financial Techniques
  • Developing an Effective Sales Strategy

Addressing Complex Business Challenges (2 weeks each)
The Complex Business Challenges courses focus on new and emerging management topics.

  • Unlocking the Potential of Smart Manufacturing and Internet of Things
  • Going Global: Developing Your Business Internationally
  • Entrepreneurship: Launching and Financing your own Venture
  • Sustainability & Ethics in Business
  • The Success Secrets of Design, Luxury and Made in Italy Excellence

The final phase of the program is the in-company project work wherein each candidate will work on a full-time project inside one of the official partner companies. This phase would allow the candidates to gain first-hand experience in a leading international company gaining insights on best practices and processes. The project work offers the opportunity to candidates to gain hands-on experience but also to showcase their skills and talent to possible future employers.

The Project Work is a full-time, three month experience working inside one of the MBA company partners or other companies in the school’s corporate partner network. This is the opportunity for students to experiment and apply the content learnt during the classroom component of the course to real-life situations. It is not the “usual internship” as it is a project that sets tasks to complete and goals to fulfil and is tailored to meet both the needs of the company and the student. In fact, companies actually make an investment in the student and hence it is in their best interest to dedicate a great deal of attention to both the project and student. The project work may actually lead to a job offer in the host company at the completion of the project.

IBM and Politecnico di Milano announced in June 2013 the creation of a new Centre for Innovation, the first of its kind in Europe, devoted specifically to Big Data and Business Analytics. Following a model of continuous long-term and open collaboration, its objective is to promote the recognition of their importance, both in academia and in business, through distinctive skill-forming and training programs.

Within this initiative, IBM and MIP organize a Big Data & Business Analytics Seminar for Full Time MBA Students as part of the MBA curriculum. The aim of the course is to survey the state-of-the-art topics in Big Data Analytics, providing a cross view about mining and analyzing data within a relevant range of industrial applications.


Academic study is only one part of what we see as complete development for the MBA participant. During the MBA Program, students will also acquire soft skills and tools that will help them not only to make the most of their personal investment in the MBA, but also continue to develop relational capabilities throughout their career.

Every year, MIP participates in the Clean Technology Challenge, a student competition hosted jointly by London Business School and University College London that seeks to encourage ideas for the generation of new sources of sustainable energy, increase the efficiency of the existing generation and develop new, easily adopted products that will result in lower energy consumption. For the past three years running, MIP teams have entered the finals.

MIP is the only Associated Business School in Italy of the World Business Forum in Milan and offers students the chance to attend the WBF and participate in Q&A sessions with the outstanding speakers of the forum. Past speakers include: Edward De Bono, Gary Hamel, Philip Kotler, Tom Peters, Kevin Roberts and Joseph Stiglitz.


Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship

The Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship is a yearly event aimed at promoting the Circular Economy, an economic concept regarding the re-circulation of resources back into the economy on a multi-use basis.
Students specifically interested in Circular Economy can apply for this fellowship in the course of their studies. One MBA participant will receive the Fellowship Award, i.e. a €5,000 sponsorship, and will take part in a 1 year Circular Economy Innovation project, including one week spent in London, as part of the scheme with other students from renowned universities worldwide.


The MIP faculty is made up of professors with extremely diverse professional and educational backgrounds, further complemented by a dedicated teaching staff.

Faculty members, many of whom are succesful professionals in their own right, draw on their own consulting work and the immense research facilities of the Politecnico di Milano to provide, up-to-date, diverse and relevant material for lectures and business cases, and routinely strive to be readily accessible to students, and to make classroom time a rewarding and excting experience.
