Objectives of the Master’s Degree Programme in International Management

The Master’s Degree Programme in International Management – held in Milan and Amsterdam – is designed for dynamic, open-minded and globally-oriented students who want to break out of their comfort zone and into a multi-cultural environment.

Students will match strong business fundamental skills with real-world situations and acquire all the tools they need to succeed in today’s complex world. The learning experience goes beyond the classroom, as the program is taught by both Luiss’ top academics and senior business executives from global companies.

The experience will help students understand trends and industries that operate both in Italy and in the Netherlands.

The Programme will start in Amsterdam and will end in Milan, at the Milano Luiss Hub.
