The executive format of the Ph.D. programme in Management Engineering offers a highly developed research course designed for leading managers and professional figures in the fields of research and innovation within both Private and Public organisations.
The programme has three objectives:
- to allow companies to experience innovation procedures that combine the rigour and methodology of academic research at international level with the practicality of a project of company innovation;
- to allow participants to work within a stimulating international context where they can develop methodological and disciplinary skills in research and innovation.
- to enable collaboration between company and university on cutting-edge research projects
The programme is specifically designed to complement and be compatible with each participant’s professional life, in a part-time format: it has the same requirements of the full time programme, but higher flexibility, consisting of a four-year part-time. The articulation of the programme is based on the same 3 main areas of education as reported in the “Contents and courses” section.
The small number of participants admitted on the course, the presence of renowned tutors and the possibility for students to choose from a wide range of training opportunities within the doctoral programme of Management Engineering and MIP – the Business School of Politecnico di Milano – are factors that allow students to develop a personalised programme that can be adapted to the requirements of both the students and their companies.
International collaboration with other doctoral programmes means that students come into contact and work with other cultures, differing experiences and advanced research methodologies.
The company will be able to cultivate a future leader in research and innovation whose training is tailored to company requirements, as well as having the methodological support of scholars and experts from one of the most prestigious European management schools.
