MIP is accredited by ASFOR (Italian Association of Management Education Institutions) and by EQUIS. Our primary aim is to give our participants strong competences and skills for their entire career. In order to pursue this goal, the MBA Program is based on three pillars: Core Fundamentals, Monographs, Concentrations and Complementary curricula.
