The Master in Management / Industrial Activities is aimed at young graduates in technical-scientific subjects who want to acquire skills in the field of business management and who aspire to a managerial career in the company.
The labor market requires increasingly specific managerial skills for those with a background linked to the scientific and technological sectors. The industrial companies of all sectors, but in particular manufacturing companies and consulting firms, are the elective professional opportunities. Thanks to a strongly professionalizing orientation and to its particular structure, the Master in Management favors the insertion in the world of work in the sectors of operation management, logistics and supply chain management, quality, innovation and project management.
The course is divided into 12 months, and includes an initial phase with classroom lectures aimed at learning the fundamental knowledge of management and enriching the academic background with the management skills necessary for a direct and effective integration into the company. This is followed by an internship in the company, as a meeting point between the aspirations of the participants with the opportunities and requests of companies. The course of the Master is completed with a third phase, which includes courses and training activities carried out according to the methods typical of Executive Education, and provides intensive residential sessions of two days 2-3 times a month, accompanied by remote assisted projects and activities , parallel to the internship.
Thanks to the Master in Management, students have the opportunity to become part of the Business Network and the alumni community, a valuable international network to take the first steps of a managerial career.

Director of Studies
" The Master in Management is designed for individuals who want to invest in their future, and who began university studies in subjects not directly related to management and wish to increase the value of their education. Generally our students arrive to the program with a spirit of change and growth. The goal of the Master in Management is to carry out this objective through an innovative educational experience which is accomplished through direct connections with companies who are able to introduce students to the world of employment and professional growth. "
The Master in Management is a full-time program structured in 1.500 hours of learning activities over 12 months of study, divided into 332 hours of frontal teaching, of which 242 in the full time phase and 90 in the part-time phase, 543 estimated hours of individual study and 625 hours of internship. Overall, the Master’s program consists of a training course that integrates classroom training, e-learning, on-the-job training and integration into the company, according to an innovative structure articulated in three main phases.
First Phase: 4 months in full-time classroom
General courses and company project: the latter concludes the phase of full-time training and anticipates contact with companies with consultancy activities on a real case, exercising the participants to use the general management tools learned.
Second Phase: 4 months of internship in the company
Immediately debuted in the company: the internship is conceived as a structured experience, an agreement with companies for the development of projects assisted by a school tutor.
Third phase: 4 months of part-time training
The Master concludes with 4 months of training from two / three classroom sessions per month on Friday and Saturday, which complete the training course. Part-time training provides participants and companies the opportunity to start forms of collaboration before the end of the course, also in continuity with the internship activity.
The Master program is updated and best suited to meet the needs of the market thanks to a continuous confrontation between the faculty and a specific Management Committee:
Financial and management accounting. The role of CFO in the company. Measuring and interpreting the company's financial performance. Analysis of indices and flows. Cost calculation and analysis for management control. Strategic control and strategic cost management systems. Preliminary economic and financial analysis and budget. Evaluation of managerial performance. Multi-dimensional performance management systems.
Over the last decade sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices have become paramount for companies as well as for the society at large. Although most companies have developed sustainability programs over the years, as they are cutting carbon emissions, reducing waste, and otherwise enhancing operational efficiency, we are witnessing a mishmash of sustainability tactics that does not add up to a sustainable strategy. To endure, a sustainable strategy has to cope with the competing – and apparently divergent – interests of all stakeholders: investors, employees, customers, governments, NGOs, society and the natural environment.
The purpose of this course is to initiate a debate around the role and functioning of modern corporations as sustainability challenges, opportunities and solutions emerge. In particular, the objective of the course is to detail and disentangle the links between sustainability, CSR and the key role that digital technologies can play as a mean to translate sustainable strategies into effective outcomes.
Within this perspective, three major learning outcomes are expected:
In order to achieve these objectives the course will combine (i) case studies and whole class discussion; (ii) talks by business leaders and managers dealing with sustainability issues; (iii) lectures.
The course teaches a new plan for the launch of a new business, be it a start-up or a new business branch. Students will be guided in the formulation of a business plan, working in small groups and having the opportunity to use all the managerial tools to give life to a concrete project. The course enables you to understand and define objectives and recipients of business plans, design structure and content, guide in the drafting and critical evaluation of the plan itself and the attached documents.
The course is intended to provide the conceptual and practical tools for evaluating and maximizing the value of the business. The themes of capital budgeting (investment assessment), company valuation, cost of capital and financial structure will be discussed.
The course will cover a variety of themes which are emerging as the most prominent ones in the context of digital culture.The following is a preliminary list of the topics that will be considered.
1. Computing: Meaning and Limitations (from Kurt Godel & Alan Turing to Quantum and Beyond).
2. Counter Culture vs. Cyber Culture (Stewart Brand & Bob Taylor, a la' carte).
3. Coding: Meaning and Perspectives.
4. The Internet: Lo and Behold.
5. History of Computation.
6. The New Rise of AI: Of Men and Machines.
7. Text Digitization + Literary Analysis + Maps + Interactive Media + Games + Design + Media Art = Digital Humanities?
8. Big Brother in Action: Surveillance, Hacking, Privacy, Cyber-security and Data.
9. Ethics, Moral Responsibility and Accountability of Computing.
10. The Economics of the New Web.
The role of technological innovation in business strategies. The management of innovative processes and in particular the process of developing new products and services. Insights on organizational and technical aspects to support the development of new products (concurrent engineering, value analysis, VRP, QFD). Project management: structures, roles and programming and control techniques. Project management cases and applications for the development of new products / services.
From the business model to the operational marketing plan. The fundamental conceptual and quantitative tools necessary for understanding, analyzing and constructing the relationship a company establishes with its market of interest: the centrality of the client, studying acquired behavior, the processes of segmentation and positioning, the development of new products and the spread of innovation, pricing decisions, distribution and communication.
The team building experience as a training tool to enhance the relationship and trust for the purpose of good teamwork. The course contents analyze how people and groups interact within a company. The aim is to develop knowledge and tools to manage people in the workplace, in terms of quality such as good and psychological well-being.
The educational sessions provide various learning methods, including lectures, simulations, discussions of case studies and presentations by companies, testimonials, and group work.

This is accomplished by organizing a series of workshops, with the aim of providing the fundamental tools and resources to be appropriately prepared for the labor market.
To achieve this goal, students are involved in several workshops, among which we may list:
In addition to this, thanks to the collaboration with professional career counselors, students receive a customized service, in order to understand their strengths and to build a professional development plan, which will turn out to be helpful when looking for an internship.
