Vineeth George AbrahamF1GMAT: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your motivation to do an MBA?

Vineeth: Prior to my MBA, I was an Information technology engineer- hailing from Kerala, India. After nearly 4 years of working in the technology services field along with Infosys and Capgemini, the time was ripe for me to look out for different avenues. Hence, I decided to get my MBA. Currently I'm with IBM India, working as a marketing campaign planner, liaising with Italian counterparts.

F1GMAT: MIP Milano is known for its masters programme. How popular is your MBA programme compared to the masters?

Xixi Fan: Being part of the Politecnico, MIP pays particular attention to technology(particularly up-and-coming technology) because of the role it plays in innovation. From its engineering tradition it has inherited an analytical approach to problem solving - particularly important in the complex contexts where businesses and public administration have to operate - and a project orientation, aiming to find concrete solutions to problems. 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.
