Whether you are a prospective student, a student already enrolled, an alumnus, a corporate executive or a scholar you will find that, at the School, we all share the same values of integrity, professionalism, respect for diversity and a passion for innovation. Whatever your interests are – education, recruitment, consultancy or any other topic – you will experience the same values that drive us constantly in our mission of educating future responsible business leaders. We bring together people and ideas from around the world to cross-fertilise cultures and know-how, with the ultimate goal of contributing to a better and more sustainable management of both private and public sectors.
I would like to bring your attention to just three key features of MIP. First of all, the School is part of the Politecnico di Milano, with its long tradition of intellectually free research, scientific rigour and interdisciplinarity. This allows us to design and deliver cutting-edge educational programs, combining our managerial knowledge with the technical expertise of the other sixteen schools belonging to our University – such as Design, Energy, ICT, Mathematics, etc. Secondly, the governance of MIP, which is a consortium between the University and a prestigious group of external players, mostly top multinational corporations. This gives the School the invaluable opportunity to interact on a daily basis with the real-world experience of a corporate environment. Finally, by coming to Milan, you will experience being in one of Europe’s most influential and dynamic cultural cities, at the forefront of modern Italy.
The moment you get in touch with our School, I believe that you will share our values. We will offer you the opportunity of enhancing your personal development and becoming part of a large and diversified community.
Whenever I talk to students and graduates, I feel that being the dean of MIP Politecnico di Milano is a unique privilege. This is because I feel the unequalled satisfaction of contributing – together with faculty and staff – in shaping the talented high-flyers of tomorrow’s business world, working for a better society.
School of Management: Financial Times 2012, European Business Schools Ranking
Another leap forwards for Politecnico di Milano’s School of Management in the Financial Times’ European ranking of the top European Business Schools
The School of Management continues to climb the rankings of the 80 best European Business Schools now up to 38th place and once again four courses are listed - of which three are Masters:Full-time MBA, Executive MBA, Master of Science in Management Engineering and the customised Executive Programmes for business.
Milan, 3 December 2012
For the fourth consecutive year, the Financial Times has endorsed the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano, listed among the best schools in Europe and going up 18 places since 2009, from 56th to 38th, despite the greater number of schools in the list (from 70 in 2009 to 80 in 2012) and evermore challenging competition.
This is an ongoing progress: four years ago, the School was not even listed in international rankings. Today, it is placed 38th and, as in 2011, four programmes, three of which Master courses, are in the list:
• Executive MBA • Full-time MBA • Master of Science in Management Engineering • Customised Executive Programmes for business
Our customised Executive Programmes for business remain soundly in 17th place. This is a further recognition of the value of this programme, indeed, back in May, it was already placed among the top 70 customised executive programmes in the world, a group of programmes designed by Management Schools jointly with companies to train their most talented people at senior and middle management level.
We are also proud of the results of our Master programmes, with the Full-time MBA placed 31st, the Executive MBA 46th and the Master of Science in Management Engineering 62nd.
The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano is composed of the Department of Management Engineering and MIP, the business school of the Milan-based university. “Today’s result confirms our School’s continuing international development”, say Cristina Masella and Gianluca Spina, the Department’s Director and the President and Dean of MIP, respectively, “and is an important recognition for the School and above all for our students, who have always valued the breadth and quality of our courses”.
