“When I had journeyed half of our life’s way, I found myself within a shadowed forest, for I had lost the path that does not stray…”. With the famous lines of Dante in my mind, I may affirm that although my motivation might be lacking, the will for knowledge is still strong in me and I am excited and willing to go back to school.

Practical insights are amplified through platforms where students are given the leverage to be exposed to the domain in which they dream of excelling. The Master in Global Luxury Goods and Services Management course incorporated a study tour in order to provide Indian students with a taste of the European arena of luxury.
Before getting into the details on this (my first) article regarding the 2017 edition of the MIP MBA, let me introduce myself.
My name is Salvatore Interdonato and I am currently an MBA student at MIP. I was born in the beautiful Tyrrhenian pearl of Tropea and I have lived in Modena for most of my life. After my graduation in Civil Engineering, my desire to explore different environments led me to relocate, from Switzerland to Romania.
Going global represents a strategic decision for any company. I have always been fascinated by international firms who manage to run their business in different markets, following different strategies tailored to that specific country. Expanding the business and/or entering a new market requires resources, time, a lot of effort and a detailed plan to be implemented and controlled.

WOBI annually invite business leaders to join their World Business Forum in major cities around the world, where a careful selection of important speakers give their insights on a chosen yearly theme. As a participant on the International Flex EMBA course, which is delivered in partnership with WOBI, I was invited to join in and after some quick research, I decided on going to the Madrid event on 3-4 October.
“Collaboration is the mantra of the i-Flex EMBA” might sound like a bit of an oxymoron.
The statement, by Valentina Nardozi – a key account coordinator at Philip Morris Italia and a student on the International Flex EMBA, MIP’s online international Executive MBA – certainly makes you think. How can it be possible for an 18-month training programme which uses hi-tech digital platforms to ensure everything can be accessed remotely to be considered a hub of collaboration?
