  "The program is truly unique and very impressive. I am reasonably certain that we do not have a program like thisin North America. I commend you and your colleagues, and staff, at the two other universities for your hard work to make IMIM a success year after year. I found the students to be highly receptive to the material that I taught. They are clearly interested in knowing about other approaches to management that ensures positive outcomes for all stakeholders. The lectures resulted in a wonderful exchange of ideas and information across an international and culturally diverse student body. The students asked great questions, and I expect many will continue to study this topic after their IMIM experience. I found this academic cooperation between Italy (EU) and the U.S. to be professionally challenging and very rewarding. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. I am happy to have had the time to come to Politecnico di Milano and hope that I can come again in the future"


Bob Emiliani, Ph.D. Central Connecticut State University School of Engineering and Technology Thought Lean leadership at POLIMI, during the Italian Semester of IMIM 7th edition 2010/2012



"I followed IMIM during 5th and 6th edition, and taught Supply Chain Management, Sourcing and Purchasing during the 7th edition, always for Polimi in Como Campus. International master IMIM with its modern and innovative teaching programs, presented by highly qualified teachers and enriched by the presence of several famous visiting professors, offered to a group of students coming from all around the world, represents an effective combination for motivated young professionals wanting to complete their university training experience in international environment, in a cohesive group that enriches continuously by learning and interacting at high level with teachers. I landed to University after a long professional career in Industry: very rarely I could see such an effective combination of teaching experience and learning opportunity: the outcome is a unique valuable personal and professional enrichment for an international group of young professionals that will enjoy appreciation by Industry and rapid career opportunities for their experience and international education."

"It was a very productive experience to teach in a prestigious program such as IMIM, held by the European Commission. The classes I could develop and some master thesis that I evaluated express accurately the real spirit of this course: the encounter of multiples visions on problems and solutions in operations management. Specially, I detach the wealth opportunity of approaching boundary themes in Quality Management and Supply Chain Management, such as green supply chain, productive cooperation networks, virtual enterprises, sustainability through value chains, and many others and of discussing such topics with students from North and South America, Asia, East and West Europe: a cross-cultural experience with a multiplicity of local perspectives summing global strategies for contemporary dilemmas."

Prof. João Amato-Neto, Ph.D. Full professor at University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil, Head of the Production Engineering Department Thought at POLIMI, during the Italian Semester of IMIM 6th edition 2009/2011
 

"The International Master of Industrial Management programme is a unique combination of truly new, relevant and informative lectures connected with a worldwide creative capital, making education a great vehicle for development. It allows students to encounter multiple countries, languages, and cultures within one cohesive programme, to gain a deeper perspective of management and innovation. The lectures combined theoretical subjects and practical assignements like the immersion into consumers life, engaging students beyond reading articles and showing them that consumer centric mindset and teamwork are essential skills for managers. I found them very receptive to the innovation topics, asking great as well as controversial questions, thinking and sharing their point of view. I expect some of them will continue research on innovation to have an impact in their own countries. From the teaching point of view, the experience made me think about the way education was administered and what was being offered to the students. Conditions for change emerged studying regional and global topics and seeing first hand what was being studied in the classroom. I do not know other management programmes like this! I loved also the possibility of co-creation with other teachers of this programme, finding it very challenging and rewarding as well. I thank you, your colleagues, and all the staff, for the opportunity to contribute to this community and congratulations on your hard work to make IMIM a success year after year. I hope I can participate again in the future."

Teresa Cometto Gerente de Marketing HPC/Media at Unilever Thought at POLIMI, during the Spanish Semester of IMIM 6th edition 2009/2011


"I had the opportunity to teach a class in the 5th edition of IMIM students. The students in my class represented a very diverse group, but yet the class was cohesive and individually supportive of each other, as much or more so than any previous graduate classes I have taught. The students were academically developed and intellectually strong. I was very impressed with their desire to learn, their interaction with me (both in the and out of the classroom) and their respect for each other and their professors. I consider my experience in the IMIM program one the hi-lites of my career and will carry this experience forward with pride and a smile on my face."

Richard E. White, Ph.D. Professor of Operations Management, Department of Management, College of Business, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas Thought at POLIMI, during the Italian Semester of IMIM 5th edition 2008/2010
 

"My time as a visiting professor in the IMIM program in Como, Italy is among my most rewarding professional endeavors. To have the opportunity to work with talented faculty peers, mature and motivated students, and a very supportive staff was one that I embraced and still cherish today. Where else can one engage with students from more than twenty different nations united for a common academic experience in a splendid setting? Three years removed from the experience I remain in contact with several of my fellow IMIM faculty as well as graduates of the program, many of whom have assumed considerable responsibilities in major global corporations or pursued Ph.D. degrees."

Thomas J. Goldsby, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Supply Chain Management Gatton College of Business and Economics University of Kentucky Lexington, KY (USA) Thought at POLIMI, during the Italian Semester of IMIM 4th edition 2007/2009


"I would like to thank Erasmus Mundus Program and Polimi for the opportunity of participating in IMIM. The experience was very rich for me, discussing lean concepts with students from all around the world and interacting with Polimi faculty and researchers. The IMIM is really a program connected to globalization and advanced manufacturing concepts."

Flavio Augusto Picchi Ph.D. University of Campinas - Brazil, and Lean Institute Brasil Thought at POLIMI, during the Italian Semester of IMIM 3rd edition 2006/2008
