The Master in Management is offered by the Faculty of Economics of the Università della Svizzera italiana situated in Lugano - Switzerland. This full-time study programme comprises 120 ECTS spread over 4 semesters (usual duration 2 years) and is entirely offered in English.

The MSc in Management has been designed to provide graduates from various backgrounds with the necessary skills and tools for understanding modern management concepts. It creates the best possible conditions for a successful career in business, from start-ups to multinational companies.



The Master in Management programme introduced a new track system. Students can specialize in their studies. They can choose one of three different specialization tracks:

  • Strategy and Entrepreneurship
  • Organization and Human Resources Management
  • Socially Responsible Management

Each track comprises 18 ECTS, offered in six 3 ECTS courses in the second and third Semesters.

Students do not have to specialize, though. Thus, if they want, they can still follow the previous general Master's programme. Completing each specialization track will result in a “concentration” reported on the final transcript. The specialization tracks represent highly important areas in the modern business world and thus allow the students to develop particular expertise in these fields to develop a clearer profile upon entering the job market.


Awarded degree

After the successful completion of the programme, students will be awarded a Master of Science in Economics, Major in Management.
