Alumni back to School

Possibility to stay connected to the School until 2 years after the end of the master, attending a maximum of 2 elective courses on new topics that may emerge.

Empower your career

MIP’s Executive MBA provides participants with a holistic view of the organisation and its processes with a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship and is oriented towards reinforcing also the soft skills and developing a network of relationships so as to accelerate the professional growth of managers and entrepreneurs.

In the new edition of the course, the Leadership Development Path has been redesigned, with Leadership - a Point of View activities and a choice of new Elective courses as well as the Career Development Programme, with the introduction of a series of workshops on tools for career development, from personal branding to business presentation skills.

In order to facilitate the achievement of professional goals or to meet any requalification needs in the current situation, we have extended the Career Development services up to one year after the end of the master, increasing the opportunities of meetings, both one-2 many (such as workshops, workshops and networking events) and one-2-one.

Moreover, during and after the Master, participants will have at their disposal a tool for ongoing professional development, the revolutionary digital mentor developed by MIP with Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence tools: FLEXA.

Enhance your network

MIP is part of the Politecnico di Milano and this is a unique opportunity to build your own personal network of relationships within the University's ecosystem to support your managerial or entrepreneurial career by finding the tools, partnerships and services you need in order to face the professional challenges you will encounter.

Proximity to companies is one of MIP's special features and a characteristic of all EMBA's activities.

Focus on entrepreneurship & innovation

The Evening EMBA has been totally redesigned to train managers to be agents of innovation within their companies, where the topic of entrepreneurship, understood as being the ability to bring the creative mindset typical of start-ups into the corporate sphere, is becoming a priority.

Two pillars have in fact been dedicated to innovation and transformation, with the introduction of new courses in Design Thinking, Omni-Channel Marketing and Lean Startup. In the 4th Pillar, each student will be able to customise their own EMBA route, choosing between 2 Learning Paths with either an entrepreneurial or a managerial focus.

EMBA students will be awarded a new Diploma specialising in Digital Transformation if they choose 4 Electives courses in this area or if they participate to an optional Week in Silicon Valley.

Your Continuous Learning

Today, more than ever, being a true leader means standing out in a labour market where competition and digital transformation require constant updating, without putting the present on hold. For this reason, MIP has decided to offer an exclusive benefit for those enrolled in the Executive MBA 2022 programme: in the two years following graduation, participants will have the opportunity to access more than 370 programmes including courses and pathways from the Academy catalogue free of charge* so they can continue to invest in their future.


*Additional enrolment and administrative costs apply to some programmes. Master's programmes and programmes promoted by the Alumni area are excluded.

Smart learning: work & study

All the Executive MBA formats have been enhanced by our new digital learning platformD-HUB. Thanks to D-HUB, developed with Microsoft technology, participants can access pre-recorded video, actively participate in video sessions with the professor, interact with their peers and work with them on projects and assignments and access additional multimedia contents.

Up to-date multimedia content together with the recording of the lessons, provides a library which is always available for participants’ in-depth study and which guarantees extreme flexibility when taking the Master, regardless of geographical location and work commitments.

To provide professionals with the development of their decision-making capacities, innovation and leadership skills, our EMBA has been implemented with two routes aimed at personal and professional training: the Leadership Experiential Path and the Career Development Programme.

Our latest research shows that, on average, within two years after the end of the EMBA, 80% of graduates obtain a significant career progress, which involves a career growth in the current company in 27% of cases, and a change of career or a change of company in 53% of cases.
What kind of change?
> 71% change of role
> 58% change of function
> 24% beginning of an international mobility
> 5% launch of a start-up

Students are trained to be agents of innovation within their businesses. The goal is to bring the creative mindset typical of startups into the corporate world as well.
Therefore, programs are designed to accelerate the professional growth of managers and leaders who are able to respond to and tackle the challenges required by the market.

Return on investment

Being a professional in the workplace, students have the opportunity to put into practice immediately what they have learned during lectures. In this way, the company can derive concrete benefits from the advancement of its employee, as he or she becomes a promoter of change and innovation.

Furthermore, the company has the possibility of intervening in the definition of the final project work on which the student will work in the last few months of their EMBA. The project provides for the collaboration and supervision of a MIP Faculty member, a Politecnico di Milano professor or an outside consultant. In this way, the company can benefit from the output of the project, which is in essence strongly practical and consultancy-based; it also activates the know-how of the various Politecnico di Milano departments.

Customised training

The company can give its contribution on the specialization and the Elective Courses that the student may wish to attend. In this way, it can focus the training of his employees on issues of which development is of great value and represents a concrete benefit.

Moreover, the company can direct the training of each employee in accordance with the needs dictated by the participant’s position and his professional growth path.

Leadership Experiential Path

Completely redesigned, the Leadership Experiential Path is aimed at working on soft skills to improve management effectiveness and developing the key capabilities leaders need to successfully undertake their role within the organization.

Access to the Ecosystem of Politecnico

Exposure to a technological ecosystem such as that of the Politecnico di Milano, which ranges from industry 4.0 to the internet of things and self-driving vehicles, can provide added value for managers and entrepreneurs, also in terms of open innovation.
This enables the company to achieve considerable cost savings against that which it would normally spend on acquiring managerial skills externally.

Financial opportunities
  • The course is recognized by a public body - in this specific case by the Politecnico di Milano. Therefore, the fee of the master is VAT exempted pursuant to art. 10 DPR 633/1972.
  • A specific schedule of rates is applied, via which the cost is distributed based on the duration of the Master; we are, however, happy to take into account the needs of the company in this regard.
  • Businesses which participate in Interprofessional Funds, such as Fondimpresa and Fondirigenti, can benefit from opportunities for sponsoring their employees to take an Executive MBA, taking advantage of the funds which have accrued in their Learning Account or by using open tenders.  Here, MIP works with all joint multi-sector funds by placing a team of experts at the disposal of companies to draw attention to the various funding opportunities.
  • Companies will be offered further reductions on multiple enrolments.
  • Companies wishing to sponsor their employees will be offered an extremely flexible and customized payment plan.
