The International Management program addresses the managerial issues companies must face when expanding abroad. Graduates from this program are highly attractive to international firms because they bring an ability to apply their technical and social skills to cross-border business issues, and because they access a network of contacts through the professors and business leaders involved in the program. They can cover management positions at Italian companies operating in other countries, or handle functional and industry-specific duties for large international corporations. Double Degrees with foreign universities, along with attractive exchange programs and company internships, ensure that participants gather firsthand international experience.

International Management students may apply to the prestigious CEMS-MIM program (Master in International Management - MIM, offered by CEMS - Global Allicance in Management Education).
