Sup­ply Chain and Pur­chas­ing Man­age­ment Edu­ca­tion in Italy


MIP was born out of the part­ner­ship between the Politec­nico di Milano, the first tech­nol­ogy Uni­ver­sity in Italy, and some of the most impor­tant Ital­ian and inter­na­tional multi­na­tion­als. Founded in 2003, the School of Man­age­ment cov­ers numer­ous areas of research, edu­ca­tion and high level con­sul­tancy in the fields of eco­nom­ics, man­age­ment and indus­trial engi­neer­ing, which Politec­nico di Milano under­takes through its own struc­tures and those of the con­sor­tium to which it belongs.

The School of Man­age­ment is com­posed of the DIG - Depart­ment of Man­age­ment, Eco­nom­ics and Indus­trial Engi­neer­ing and the Busi­ness School, MIP. Over­all, there are over 200 pro­fes­sors, lec­tur­ers, researchers, tutors and staff mem­bers and every year over 600 new stu­dents enroll in the under­grad­u­ate pro­gram. In 2009, the School was included for the first time in the Finan­cial Times’ rat­ings of top Euro­pean Busi­ness Schools and in 2010 was con­firmed as the only Ital­ian busi­ness school listed in the rank­ings for three Mas­ter degrees: Exec­u­tive MBA, Full time MBA and Mas­ter of Sci­ence in Man­age­ment Engi­neer­ing. Fur­ther­more, the School of Man­age­ment climbed 11 posi­tions in the 2010 rank­ings, reach­ing 45th place.

School of Man­age­ment is accred­ited by the EQUIS, the Euro­pean Qual­ity Improve­ment Sys­tem; and ASFOR, is the Ital­ian Asso­ci­a­tion for Man­age­ment Edu­ca­tion Development.
