THINK INTERNATIONAL | Is the World your Oyster? An “Open Mic” event on what it means to study abroad today
What does it mean to Think International?
The first step has to be a change in mindset, which we aim to bring about by giving students the chance to know and understand the intrinsic, long-term value of an international experience before they have to take the actual step of choosing among the many opportunities offered by the University.
It is never too soon to start thinking about it. And this is why these events have been organized by the Department of Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering for all Bachelor and Master of Science students, in collaboration with professors, students, alumni, and international partners: to help students think strategically with their mind open to the rest of the world, with curiosity and without any kind of prejudice.

Why? Why now? Why me? Where? How?… Management Engineering students are invited to join us for an informative, entertaining, and eye-opening event, where our guests will be sharing their thoughts and experiences and will help answer some of these common and important questions.
Polimi Professor Tommaso Agasisti, member of the SoM International Relations Unit, and our distinguished guest, Professor Hans Borgman, Academic Director of International Affairs, University of Amsterdam, will engage in a conversation dedicated to the long-term value of studying abroad. They will be answering some of the most frequent questions coming from students, while providing a useful insight based on their extensive experience in the field. In addition to this, participants will hear testimonials and peer to peer advice coming from those who have “survived” the experience before them.
The aim is to support Management Engineering students who are considering the possibility of studying abroad, helping them appreciate the many options available today.
