The Master in Strategic Management for Global Business provides its students with the skills and knowledge required to become innovative and successful managers, entrepreneurs and consultants of tomorrow's global economy.

  • Attain the skills to analyse a company using the appropriate metrics, identify strengths and weaknesses and conceive innovative and effective business development plans, as entrepreneurs or strategic consultants.
  • Develop the ability to manage complexity in businesses, especially those with global expansion plans.

Academic preparation is based on practical and interactive teaching methods that include workshops led by international experts and managers from multinationals and start-ups, which represent also an excellent networking opportunity.

Upon completion of the programme, students learn how to understand the strategic drivers of long-term success of a company, how to recognize the challenges and opportunities of the international economy and how to leverage on the issues of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), sustainability and impact management in order to turn them into sound, innovative and socially responsible business opportunities.

Guest speakers from renown multinationals, consultancy groups and successful entrepreneurs will enrich lectures with vivid testimonies and with networking opportunities.

An extensive and consolidated network of companies, deriving from more than a decade-long Master’s history and from the manifold activities of ALTIS, guarantees a great exposure to the market, both for in-class activities and in relation to the students’ on-field project.
