The general management core courses have the objective of taking a broader look, with professors and business managers, at the fundamental disciplines of management and of providing participants with a holistic view of the organisation and its processes.
This clear new structure, with a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, is divided into 4 Pillars and preceded by the PRE-PROGRAMME for strengthening and aligning students’ basic skills.
