A Top MBA program designed with Top Companies

The world is going through unprecedented change and a new generation of leaders is required. Leaders that combine the most advanced management skills with the ability to leverage the power of purpose to deliver remarkable performance and a positive contribution to society.

The International Full-Time MBA at POLIMI GSoM, is the cornerstone of our business school. For this reason we decided to completely redesign the programme, as a New Generation MBA. The programme aims to train future leaders of the most prominent companies of our time, by preparing brilliant minds for the important responsibilities of the future.

What makes our International Full-Time MBA different is that we aim to coach future managers, entrepreneurs, policymakers and professionals to develop the skills and capabilities additionally required to establish and guide a purposeful organisation.

It has become clear that profit and purpose are no longer two opposing realities. To keep up with the times, rethinking a company’s purpose and playing a concrete role in society is fundamental for any organisation.
Here is our biggest challenge: to help future business leaders and managers to be more confident and conscious about what we call “the purpose revolution”.
That is why at POLIMI Graduate School of Management we have launched our New Generation MBA: a unique Master that will prepare future #leaders to succeed, give meaning to their success, and to contribute to build a better future for all. – Federico Frattini, POLMI GSoM Dean
