Deciding to study an MBA is by far one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to face. For most of us coming all the way to Milan to study an MBA implied more than just switching country, but changing culture, quitting a secure job, and facing the uncertainty of “ Now what? ”, once you finish. One year after that, I can tell you the choice couldn’t have been any better.

MIP provides a world-class Full-Time MBA program with a rich and promising study plan, very well prepared faculty and professors and a wide range of opportunities for both personal and professional development. Studying an MBA at MIP in Milan not only changes your mindset (you’ll be studying in the capital of fashion of Italy and the engine of Italian economy) but gives you a full exposure to a wide range of companies (local and multinationals) from all sectors. The University has a vast network of contacts that can open multiple doors throughout your MBA path.

In my case, I had the opportunity to be one of the 5 winners allowed to spend one day with the CEO of a company thanks to the initiative “CEO for One Day”, with over 400 applicants of the best business schools of Italy, and spend a day in Corriere della Sera with the Director of the newspaper. During the World Business Forum (Milano 2013) I had the pleasure to assist Martin Lindstrom, recipient of TIME Magazine’s “World’s 100 Most Influential People” in 2009 and even share ideas and experiences with him.

Last but not the least, MIP offers you the opportunity to undertake a project work in a company for 3 months after lessons finish. This is an incredible opportunity that worked in the best possible way for me, as I’m finishing my first month in AUDI AG, in Ingolstadt, Germany.
