"The master of the Bologna Business School has allowed me to capitalize on my previous educational and work experiences, opening doors for me that would otherwise have remained closed. Marketing, finance, administration and audit, and industrial design were transformed from unknown elements for me, into topics that challenged and allowed me to grow, both personally and professionally. Eventually they would become a foundation for achieving ever more ambitious goals. In other words, a year that was worth 30 years."

Master in Management (a.y. 2016/17)
"After graduating in History and Criticism of Art from Milan University, and despite a great passion that still exists, I felt the need to move towards something that could further enrich me and open the way to work in a company. The Master in Management allowed me to discover first-class qualities and interests; He gave me satisfaction and a 360 degree knowledge of what a company is. Moreover, the master directed me toward a new passion, the HR area. It gave me the tools to analyze and understand the world of work and, above all, the opportunity to become aware of it thanks to a fantastic stage in human resources at the Adecco Italia s.p.a.

Sales & Marketing Assistant, Castello di Ama
MGI - Food & Wine (a.a. 2012/13)
"Il master alla Bologna Business School ha rappresentato per il me il punto cruciale di svolta tra la teoria universitaria e la pratica lavorativa. Le lezioni dell'università infondono sapere, ma non insegnano a guardare il mondo del lavoro globalizzato con gli occhi attenti di una figura manageriale. I vari corsi del master fanno della realtà aziendale, così nebulosa per studenti aspiranti lavoratori, un insieme ordinato di componenti con regole proprie. Il master mi ha permesso di guardare il singolo organismo ‘azienda’ come un insieme di apparati che collaborano per la buona riuscita del tutto. Sei mesi di full immersion in lezioni di economia, marketing, finanza e project work si sintetizzano in un bagaglio culturale ed esperienziale che nella realtà lavorativa permettono un grande vantaggio competitivo."
Financial Planning & Analysis, Culligan Italiana
Finance, Control and Auditing (a.y. 2012/13)
"The Masters in Finance, Control and Auditing is the key to accessing the privileged world of company auditing and finance. The program allowed me to develop relationships with professionals from some of the biggest auditor and consultant companies and to later join one of their teams. It has been an experience which has enabled me to grow both professionally and personally and I am very satisfied about this."

MGI - Retail Management (a.y. 2013/14)
"The Retail Management track of the Master in Business Management represented for me the crucial turning point from university theory to practical work experience. It was an amazing opportunity because I had the unique chance to work in a stimulating and multilingual work environment with entrepreneurs and senior business managers. Also, the company projects with a sectorial approach implemented my knowledge, skills and creativity in many ways. The meeting with marketing managers of Essse Caffè was a great stepping stone for my career because now I’m Marketing Assistant in this company. I support the marketing managers with the creation, execution and delivery of campaigns in order to achieve the business plan and I’m at the heart of driving marketing campaigns of products and services."
