Financial Times Masters in Management 2019 Ranking
The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano among the top 5 technical schools in the world for its Master of Science in Management Engineering
Politecnico di Milano’s School of Management holds its place among the world’s leading business schools and is in the top five for schools belonging to a “technical” university with a specific focus on engineering and technology, with its Master of Science in Management Engineering.
This is according to the Financial Times, which has published its Masters in Management Ranking 2019, placing the Milanese school’s long-standing program among the top 94 in absolute terms and among the top five for programs taught at business schools connected to technical universities, as is Politecnico di Milano. And that is not all, the School’s Master of Science in Management Engineering is also among the top five globally for Management Engineering, that is, among programs with a similar structure and set of contents.
The ranking examined a series of aspects, giving high scores for the graduate’s career prospects, both in Italy and abroad, the pay levels that this program can lead to and the opportunity for students to be offered internships in leading companies during their studies. Other factors include the School’s excellent price-quality ratio, its highly international faculty and the study and placement opportunities offered outside Italy.
“Very few Masters in Management Engineering can be measured directly against ours”, confirms Stefano Ronchi, President of the degree course in Management Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. “Our distinctive feature is that we place courses in management, economics and finance alongside our teachings in engineering and technical subjects, which are indispensable to understand and oversee the digital transformation that will increasingly permeate throughout company development. We are able to give our students a strong grounding in management while helping them to cultivate an analytical and engineering mindset that can be applied to identifying and solving problems”.
The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano brings together the Department of Management Engineering and MIP, the Business School of the Milan-based university.
In a joint statement, Alessandro Perego and Andrea Sianesi, the Department’s Director and the President and Dean of MIP, respectively, explain: “The FT’s recognition is, as always, extremely important for all our Master students, alumni and graduates. For years, we have concentrated on an international approach to our courses and on competencies linked to digital transformation. The Financial Times’ conclusions show that we are on the right path, as it places us among the best management schools in the world with a strong emphasis on technology and engineering”.
