Check all the details about deadlines and amounts on the Web page Student contribution.

The Laurea Magistrale study programme in Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering includes lessons related to three big subject areas: Applied Economics, Industrial Engineering, Management.
Students can decide among these subjects according to different proportions and specific needs, to the type of professional profile, critical skills and their training objectives.
Given that not all exam combinations are equally effective, as well as they do not offer a proper consistency with the profile of the Management Engineer, there are some examples of study plans that have been already approved in advance.

Internal Double Degrees
The Internal Double Degrees are joint programs designed in collaboration with other Study Programmes of Politecnico di Milano with the aim to provide further skills, related to other subjects, to the management engineer, in order to develop new professional profiles able to meet the challenges and new opportunities in some specific sectors.

Double Degree in Built Environment and Management Engineering

The Double Degree in Built Environment and Management Engineering aims to meet the new challenges related to the building sector, at national and international level, by developing new professional profiles that put together the typical skills of management engineering with those of the built management.

Double Degree in Energy and Management Engineering

The Double Degree in Energy and Management Engineering aims to develop new highly specialized professionals in the field of energy and management in order to face the continuous global demand for energy due to current economic growth.
To support and speed up this change of the energy sector, a new generation of industrial engineers and managers is needed, new professional profiles able to transform the potentials of new technologies into consolidated industrial processes where knowledge and technical and managerial skills are perfectly mixed together and, therefore, well equipped to face some of the most relevant challenges.
In this context, the students who decide to undertake this double degree programme will have the opportunity to develop in an integrated way the typical skills of Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering with those that specifically concern the Energy Engineer.

Double Degree in Management Engineering and Product-Service System Design

The Double Degree in Management Engineering and Product-Service System Design aims to develop new highly specialized professionals in the fields of design, management, strategic development and creation of innovative business models.

Students who decide to undertake this career will develop skills that go beyond product design but involve the whole product-service-communication system, with a specific focus on services and complex systems for creating value for individuals and companies, by combining the ability to conceive and visualise business models and boost the innovation process.
