Presentation: Advanced Master in Innovation & Entrepreneurship
The Advanced Master in Innovation & Entrepreneurship is a 12 month International Master programme taking place at Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management and MIP Politecnico di Milano, and is taught entirely in English.
The Advanced Master in Innovation & Entrepreneurship is aimed at candidates who want to think and act like entrepreneurs and become innovative leaders.
Our partner: MIP Politecnico di Milano.
MIP is a global business school accredited by EQUIS and AMBA. It is ranked by the Financial Times among the best business schools in Europe and has been recognised as a prestigious business school for over 30 years. The school works with a wide network of public and private companies and is supported by the strong links developed with the Politecnico di Milano's Departments of Engineering and Design.
The course is taught entirely in English and lasts for 10 months starting in September. The programme consists of an autumn term in Milan, a spring term in Brussels and a summer term at one of the two campuses, according to preference.
By being mobile across different European locations, the participants will be stimulated to adopt a broader market perspective and to use their capability to network and interact with different business environments.
Over the course of the program, participants will take part in two main field projects:
- The “New Venture Lab” where they will have to act as an entrepreneur to create a startup from scratch.
- The “Innovation in Action Lab” where they will have to run a consulting assignment in an established small or medium enterprise.
During these projects, participants will be individually coached by the Faculty and professional consultants to maximise their on-the-job learning experience.
