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

  • 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.

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.

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. 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.

What type of degree/title will I obtain upon graduation?

Upon graduation, candidates obtain the First Level University Specializing Master from Politecnico di Milano which is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) and it is issued under the autonomous responsibility of Politecnico di Milano.

Candidates are advised to check with the relevant authorities in their home countries regarding the validity/recognition of this title in their home countries.

How much do pre-courses / Italian language courses cost?

There is absolutely no additional cost for either of these courses.

Will I have to buy didactic materials?

No, you will be provided with these by the MBA Program Office. There will also be no extra charge for books as the cost is covered in the fee.

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.
Project Work can be considered the first step into an MBA career as these positions may actually lead to a job offer in the host company at the completion of the project.
About 13% of project work experiences are held abroad, while 87% take place in Italy.

Payback: value for money.

The Personal Development (PD) sequence runs throughout the MBA and is closely linked to the work of the Career Service.

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 MIP test is composed of business case analysis, logic-based test and data interpretation test. It is conducted online or on-campus depending on the availability of the candidate.

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

MILAN IS YOUR CAMPUS

Why do an MBA on a campus when you can have one of Europe’s most vibrant cities at your feet? To let you really get to know Milan and to get a 24-hours-a-day experience of your MBA, we will open up an ecosystem of opportunities to enable you to experience the city in all its facets. You will have partnerships with restaurants and recreational venues at your disposal, dedicated co-working spaces in key areas of Milan, a travel pass to allow you to move around the city, bike- and car-sharing agreements to get around as you wish, discounts on cultural and recreational events, partnerships with gyms and fitness areas, and much, much more!

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.

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.

What is the cost of living in Milan?

The cost of living is comparable to that of many other important European capitals. We recommend that students budget for around EUR 1.000 per month; however, these costs will vary depending on each person’s personal spending habits. Ask infomasters@mip.polimi.it for a breakdown of monthly living costs.

Where is MIP located in Milan?

MIP is located in the north-west of Milan at the Bovisa site, a brand new campus just 2 train stops from the centre of Milan. It is also well serviced by buses and trams.

Where can I stay during my studies?

MIP has a range of agreements with various residences around Milan, each with fast and easy access to the Bovisa campus, or we can assist you in finding short-term private accommodation. Visit the International Students Office page to find out more.
