School of Management

Change at the top of our Business School

Today’s shareholders’ meeting has ratified the change at the top of our Business School, starting from the 1st of January 2020: Andrea Sianesi, appointed by the Senate and the University Board as the new President of Fondazione Politecnico di Milano, leaves the Presidency to Vittorio Chiesa and the office of Dean to Federico Frattini.

The gratitude of the whole School goes to Andrea for all the work he has done in recent years.

Under his guidance, MIP has, in fact, contributed substantially and fundamentally to the achievement of significant successes on the part of the School of Management in terms of international accreditations (EQUIS for 5 years, AMBA for 5 years, EOCCS for two Flex EMBA courses and the forthcoming AACSB) and results in the rankings (e.g. 7th in the world in QS – Online MBA), which today enable the School of Management to rank among the best management schools in the world which belong to a technical university.

Again, under his guidance, MIP has succeeded in following a path of progressive integration within the School, which, together with the strong drive for internationalisation, innovation in terms of both product and format and the ever increasing application of digital technology to the provision of training courses, has allowed the attainment of remarkable growth in both turnover and profitability, generating resources that have been committed to the development of the faculty of the Department of Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering, or to support the School’s strategic projects (funding for the development of activities in China and for the Gianluca Spina residency) and, last but not least, for the realisation of innovative projects for the application of digital technologies (AI) to lifelong learning (the FLEXA project).

A big thank you then, to Andrea, and our best wishes for success in his next professional challenge.

Alessandro Perego on behalf of the whole Politecnico di Milano School of Management
