Career Prospects

The programme develops the skills necessary to perform successfully in business organisations from start-ups to multinational companies.

The range of career opportunities for graduates of the MSc in Management is quite wide. In fact, as a Master in Management is not highly vocational, it does not narrow down the professional paths into something really specific. Graduates can find good opportunities in small and medium-sized enterprises, large organizations, banks, or they can also start their own company. This last, an entrepreneurial career, is becoming a more common choice than in the past.

The skills you gain on this management degree allow you to contribute to your employer's organisation quickly and effectively

Lastly, our Master in Management gives really good career opportunities to its students, thanks to the strong relationships that it has developed with the local enterprises, with the national environment, and also with the international contest.
