PROGRAM

 

BASICS IN DIGITAL

Candidates will gain the knowledge and understanding of basic business concepts and management functions like marketing, finance, human resource management, supply chain, innovation and project management, digital transformation & business law. These core topics will be delivered completely online using our advanced digital learning platform.

THE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE

BASICS IN ACTION

Candidates will attend face-to-face lectures with world class faculty and industry experts to further deepen their understanding of topics covered in the phase. This part of the program involves putting the concepts learnt in the Digital Basics phase into practice during business cases and practical assignments involving complex, cross-functional and multi-industry problems.

MANAGEMENT BOOT CAMPS

The Management Boot Camps are designed to offer practical learning modules which are organised by company officials and industry experts. This phase will allow candidates to put into practice what they have learnt theoretically in the previous phases and get into direct contact with experienced managers and top level executives to learn how to solve complex real world problems inside companies.
The Management Boot Camp will allow candidates to learn about emerging management topics under the mentorship of industry experts and company officials from the MBA partner companies and several other companies in MIP’s corporate network. Candidates will work on 9 different boot camps (1 week each) based on a range of emerging topics in business which they can also club together with an optional Silicon Valley Experience.

This phase is organised in two parts:
Developing Your Advanced Skills (compulsory)
The Advanced skills courses are transversal in nature giving a cross-functional view of business.

  • Finance in Action
  • Sales Strategy in Action

Addressing Complex Business Challenges (electives)
The Complex Business Challenges courses focus on new and emerging management topics.

Students can choose a minimum of 7 courses among the following:

  • Sustainability and Business Ethics
  • Circular Economy
  • Before Going Global: International Market Assessment
  • Going Global: Managing an International Business
  • Industry 4.0
  • Big Data & Analytics
  • Luxury & Made in Italy Excellence
  • Design Thinking: a Journey from Meanings to Solutions
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Lean Start-up Lab
  • Soft Skills Program
  • Students will have the opportunity to choose one of the international weeks as part of the seven elective boot camps:
  • Silicon Valley Experience
  • International week @IPADE (Mexico City)
  • International week @BUA (Beijing)
PROJECT WORK

The final phase of the program is the in-company project work wherein each candidate will work on a full-time project inside one of the official partner companies. This phase allows the candidates to gain first-hand experience in a leading international company gaining insights on best practices and processes. The project work offers the opportunity to candidates to gain hands-on experience but also to showcase their skills and talent to possible future employers.

The Project Work is a full-time, three-month experience working inside one of the MBA company partners or other companies in the school’s corporate partner network. This is the opportunity for students to experiment and apply the content learnt during the classroom component of the course to real-life situations. It is not the “usual internship” as it is a project that sets tasks to complete and goals to fulfil and is tailored to meet both the needs of the company and the student. In fact, companies actually make an investment in the student and hence it is in their best interest to dedicate a great deal of attention to both the project and student. The project work may actually lead to a job offer in the host company at the completion of the project.

SPECIAL PROJECTS

Academic study is only one part of what we see as complete development for the MBA participant. During the MBA Program, students will also acquire soft skills and tools that will help them not only to make the most of their personal investment in the MBA, but also continue to develop relational capabilities throughout their career.  

CleanTech Challenge

Every year, MIP participates in the Clean Technology Challenge, a student competition hosted jointly by London Business School and University College London that seeks to encourage ideas for the generation of new sources of sustainable energy, increase the efficiency of the existing generation and develop new, easily adopted products that will result in lower energy consumption. For the past three years running, MIP teams have entered the finals.

MIP 4 Entrepreneurs

An MBA at MIP is also a unique opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs. Ideas that pass the feasibility check will be granted with three months (final Project Work) of full service business incubation in PoliHUB:  The start-up incubator & district of Politecnico di Milano

  • 3,000 square metres of new facilities at walking distance from MIP
  • An environment hosting currently more than 40 start-ups and young entrepreneurs
  • Ranked #3 among University Incubators worldwide by UBI Index

The MIP faculty is made up of professors with extremely diverse professional and educational backgrounds, further complemented by a dedicated teaching staff.

Faculty members, many of whom are succesful professionals in their own right, draw on their own consulting work and the immense research facilities of the Politecnico di Milano to provide, up-to-date, diverse and relevant material for lectures and business cases, and routinely strive to be readily accessible to students, and to make classroom time a rewarding and excting experience.

Additionaly, the faculty is composed of a large number of international members, which is further representative of the highly gloablised environment of the school.

How long is the MBA program and when does it start?

The MBA program begins in September of each year and has a duration of 12 months which includes:

1st term, 2 months online distance learning.

2nd term, 3 months on campus.

3rd term, 3 months on campus with companies.

4th term, 3 months final Project Work and graduation.

In what language is the MBA held?

The MBA course is held entirely in English, however we recognise the importance of speaking Italian and therefore we provide, as part of the course, Italian language lessons during the Basics in Action phase.
For Italians or students with complete fluency in Italian, we offer Business English courses.

How is the curriculum structured?

Our primary aim is to give our participants strong competencies and skills for their entire career. In order to pursue this goal, the MBA Program is based on 4 pillars: Basics in Digital, Basics in Action, Management Boot Camp and the Project Work. Download the MBA brochure for details.

What is the expected personal commitment?

MBA students are expected to give priority to their MBA studies. Generally, they will be involved in classes for around 6 hours a day. Apart from classroom sessions, MIP places great importance on complementary curricula and students should view this as an opportunity for further growth and practical experience.
These activities include field experiences such as in-company projects, business games, entrepreneurial projects and competitions, as well as business seminars with company representatives and alumni talks. Attendance is compulsory for most of these activities.

What are the teaching methods used?

The International MBA is a program which responds to today’s business needs. The unique training formula combines technological know-how with management skills and incorporates 4 fundamental elements:

Analytical approach to problem solving.

Innovation and technology.

Development of interpersonal and soft skills to create well-rounded candidates.

Close collaboration with our wide company network.

The diversified teaching methodologies include: interactive lessons, business cases, group activities, business seminars, outdoor training, assessment centre, business games and business plan.

What is the exam structure like?

Each core subject and concentration finishes with a final exam and an evaluation will also be made of the Project Work based on the feedback of the in-company tutor and MIP tutor. Students will also give a final presentation on their own Project Work. Grading is according to the Italian system.

Are Pre-Courses available?

All students undertaking the MBA will be sent online pre-courses to update their skills and knowledge prior to beginning the MBA. These courses need to be finished before course commencement; however, the students may follow them in their own time and at their own pace.

Will I be able to learn Italian?

Just living in Italy presents so many possibilities for learning Italian and each person’s progress will depend greatly on the effort they put in. MIP also offers students the encouragement and assistance needed to gain confidence in the language, providing Italian classes during the Basics in Action phase. Over the years, MIP has had many MBA students from all sorts of language backgrounds who have achieved excellence in the language.

Will I be able to attend an exchange program with another School?

Yes! We have a range of exchanges available and these vary in duration from 1 week to 3 months. There is also a dual degree program, where participants are awarded two qualifications from two institutions. In the shorter programs, students will undertake some electives during the exchange. Our partner schools come from the world over and we are constantly seeking out new agreements to offer our students a wide choice in terms of country, duration and the types of electives to study.
For an updated partner schools list – see the section International Partners.

Do I need a computer?

We recommend that each student has their own laptop for their own convenience. It is not an essential item at school since study areas are provided with PCs, however, students may be required to do homework on a laptop.

Students have set tasks to complete and goals to fulfil, and the project is tailored to meet both the needs of the company and the student.

How will I be notified of my admissions decision and when?

Admission is on a rolling basis, therefore each application is processed in the order that it is received. Furthermore, earlier applications are given preference over later ones. The decision whether to award admission to the MBA is communicated via email within roughly 2 weeks of the application being completed (that is, the interview has been done and all outstanding requirements and documents have been provided).

Is there a minimum required GMAT/GRE score?

We request that students aim for 600 to 620 on the GMAT scale. We will take into consideration lower scores depending on the quality of the rest of the application.

What is the MIP test?

The MIP test is MIP’s own admissions exam that must be taken compulsorily in addition to the motivational interview that candidates must sit.

Which degrees do you accept?

Bachelor degrees in just about any discipline are acceptable. The final decision will be made also based on what type of work experience the candidate has accrued.

Will I have to take the TOEFL/IELTS tests?

You can choose which English certificate you would like to take. Generally they have a validity of 2 years. Some candidates may be exempted from providing the English certificate if they are native English speakers or can demonstrate that they have extensive experience working, living or studying in an English-speaking environment.

Do I have to come to the School for my interview?

If you are located near the school or visiting Milan, we would be most happy to receive you on campus for your interview. However, given the international nature of the student body, this is not feasible in most cases. We therefore conduct interviews via Skype using a webcam.

“I spent 3 months in one of the top business schools in France: EM Lyon.
This long exchange gave me the opportunity to understand French culture, which I believe is very important for doing business in France. They have a wide variety of electives to choose from and there are a lot of exchange students from all over the world, so I felt very at home. The school is an hour’s drive from the Alps and I joined a skiing trip with the class that made us a little closer. I enjoyed all the facilities the school has to offer and expanded my network. I strongly recommend to any incoming students that they participate in one of these exchanges and take the opportunity to make their profile more international.” – JAYADEEP AKKIREDDY, INDIA – MBA 2012

THE MBA EXPERIENCE

A BLOG DEDICATED TO THE INTERNATIONAL MASTERS AND MBA EXPERIENCE

Studying in Milan and at MIP Politecnico di Milano is a unique and rewarding experience. In addition to the study program, students participate in a wide range of exciting activities, events and experiences that enrich and enhance their own personal journey

The newly created Masters BLOG www.growingleader.com is a blog designed for people interested in knowing more about Milan and MIP where they can share and discuss these experiences, as well as their own insights, opinions and personal stories, on a range of diverse topics including business, education, current events and more! 

Follow the BLOG on www.growingleader.com or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram #growingleader

Living and studying in Milan offers a broad exposure to an international business community and opens up an array of opportunities thanks to its rich entrepreneurial network and the wide variety of sectors present in the territory. Home to 400 banks and major industrial companies, Milan is often described as the “Locomotive of Italy”; it is at the heart of a manufacturing system that generates 21% of Italy’s GDP and its strong economic base has made it one of Italy’s most influential cities.

Milan is also an international centre for the fashion industry and a world leader in design. Here the ingrained manufacturing tradition is flanked by a culture of progress and experimentation, enterprise and production. It is a cultural city at the forefront of modern Italy where the most important events, shows and exhibitions take place. Trade fairs are an important resource of the city which allow enterprises, particularly small and medium ones, to connect with international markets.

This city possesses an efficient infrastructure system and its well-developed road, rail and airport connections make it a major tourist destination in Europe. 
Milan is known for being a dynamic city which, even after 2,000 years of history, is still evolving. And yet in this constant change, where new buildings are replacing the old ones, there is a balance between the rich historical heritage and modernity. And this is what makes Milan unique in Italy: a combination of both new and old.
