They say about us:

“A new kind of integration between University and Companies which could become a leading model (Degree Plus)”

“We  have MIBE students working within our company and they all stand out. In particular, we find they have an eye on internationalization and an ability to work in team which we rarely see in other employees”

We find the idea to have two curricula – one in International Management and then a new one in Digital Management – extremely positive, as it is very well planned . The introduction of the Digital Management curriculum is a very important step to meeting the job market need for this new type of highly sought-after  professional profiles.

MIBE also offered me the great opportunity to spend a year abroad within the Double Degree program at the University of Tübingen, one of the few Universities in Germany which has been awarded with the title “University of Excellence”. This experience abroad was highly formative and a great opportunity which I would recommend to all Master’s degree students.

MIBE is always reactive and focused on how to adapt its course contents according to the job market needs  and on how to  open the door to a mutually profitable collaboration between the university and firms/companies.

I find the Digital Management curriculum very interesting, since not many other Italian universities offer this. I also find some tools, such as the possibility of an internship, the placement initiatives,  and presence of firms and companies in the Advisory Board, very powerful, as they can give fantastic results to all the parts involved.

MIBE made me stand out from the crowd,  providing me with important job opportunities and experiences, including winning the competition “CEO for a Day” and having an internship in a well-known consulting company in Shangai.
