A warm welcome. Whether you are a prospective student, a student already enrolled, an alumnus, a corporate executive or a scholar you will find that, at the School, we all share the same values of integrity, professionalism, respect for diversity and a passion for innovation. Whatever your interests are -- education, recruitment, consultancy or any other topic -- you will experience the same values that drive us constantly in our mission of educating future responsible business leaders. We bring together people and ideas from around the world to cross-fertilise cultures and know-how, with the ultimate goal of contributing to a better and more sustainable management of both private and public sectors.
I would like to bring your attention to just three key features of MIP. First of all, the School is part of the Politecnico di Milano, with its long tradition of intellectually free research, scientific rigour and interdisciplinarity. This allows us to design and deliver cutting-edge educational programs, combining our managerial knowledge with the technical expertise of the other sixteen schools belonging to our University -- such as Design, Energy, ICT, Mathematics, etc. Secondly, the governance of MIP, which is a consortium between the University and a prestigious group of external players, mostly top multinational corporations. This gives the School the invaluable opportunity to interact on a daily basis with the real-world experience of a corporate environment. Finally, by coming to Milan, you will experience being in one of Europe's most influential and dynamic cultural cities, at the forefront of modern Italy.
The moment you get in touch with our School, I believe that you will share our values. We will offer you the opportunity of enhancing your personal development and becoming part of a large and diversified community.
Whenever I talk to students and graduates, I feel that being the dean of MIP Politecnico di Milano is a unique privilege. This is because I feel the unequalled satisfaction of contributing -- together with faculty and staff -- in shaping the talented high-flyers of tomorrow's business world, working for a better society.
