Firms evolve because they interact with other firms and customers and it is important to consider not only domestic markets but above all the ability to manage “long” supply chains, that go from Europe to Asia to Africa and America, to handle local and international suppliers and clients, is a key factor to having a successful business. This is the goal of the International Processes track.
The MBA in International Processes is a 12 month full-time program, taught entirely in English. it is designed to enhance management skills, considering the interaction between European and emerging markets, with a focus on Asian Markets. Participants will analyze investment opportunities, retail and supply chain strategies. A 500 hour internship will help students to improve their problem solving skills, giving them the opportunity to face actual situations that normally arise within the business world.
The curriculum of the MBA in International Processes, is divided in two main parts: the first one will focus on general management, while the second one will study subjects specific of this sector.
Other program features are: internships, career development activities, and a business English course. Intensive Italian classes are offered free of charge to international participants who wish to improve their language skills during their stay in Italy. Italian classes are scheduled in September 2016, prior to the beginning of the MBA courses.
INTERNSHIP AND CAREER
Creating employability is one of the primary goals of the MBA International Processes program. Therefore, interaction between theory and practice is an essential part of the curriculum: master lectures, testimonials, analysis of business cases, and in-company visits will take place throughout the year and will go side by side the core academic courses.
The program includes a 500- hours internship scheduled in the last period of the program. Internships will take place in the field of International Processes and will give participants the possibility to face several sectors that export much more than what they sell domestically, acting as a perfect professional springboard for students.
