Yesterday saw the launch of the 37th edition of the International Full-time MBA of MIP Politecnico di Milano, with 58 people enrolled, up by 60% on the previous edition.
The new edition includes participants from 26 different countries, including Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, India, Peru, Russia, Turkey, USA and Sweden, with an average age of 30 years.

“The 60% increase in number of participants is a record for our Business School” says Raffaello Balocco, director of the Master course. He adds: “ Our success is certainly determined by the intrinsic value of our product, which, this year, includes several new aspects, to reflect more closely the needs expressed by our international students. The programme was created by and for companies to train the managers of the future, capable of facing and solving the multi-disciplinary, multi-dimensional and complex problems typical of today’s business environment. Our partner companies are actively involved from the very start of the programme, through networking events, business seminars, mentorship programmes and projects carried out with those taking the Master”.

The current edition was prepared in partnership with over 30 national and international companies, including: Aboca, Allianz, Amazon, ArtRooms, Banale, Barilla, Bip, Edison, EF - Education First, Enel, Expedia, Fire, Halldis, IBM, Kerakoll, Lastminute.com Group, Ely Lilly, Microsoft, OTB, Pirelli, Poliform, Sirti, Telecom - Tim, The Boston Consulting Group, Vente-privee, Vimar, Vivocha, Vodafone, Whirlpool, Xmetrics.
To highlight how closely these companies are working with our programme, the kick-off event featured several exceptional speakers, Gioia Ferrario, HR Director Boston Consulting Group, and a presentation by the Association Fight the Stroke, speaking about their experience and the importance of change, not only within a professional environment.

Two other novelties in the programme are the Management Bootcamp on cutting-edge topics of international interest (such as smart manufacturing, luxury and design, sustainability and ethics in business, globalisation, etc.) and the inclusion of MIP’s digital smart learning platform over the first term, allowing students to attend lessons at home from early November.
