Programme Structure

Format: Full time
Intake: September
Duration: 16 months + Master Thesis



Students will spend each of the three semesters at one of the partner institutions: starting in Madrid, Spain, and subsequently continuing with the second semester in Milan, Italy and the last one in one of the four Partner universities.
A broad foundation, comprising introductions to organizational behavior, financial and managerial accounting, corporate finance and the function of capital markets, marketing strategy and economics, will be provided during the first semester.
Building on this, the second semester further develops students' proficiency in operations management, quality management and supply chain management approaches and techniques. Thus gradually strengthening the link between general managerial work and the challenges emerging in modern manufacturing and service operations.
Students will have, then, the possibility to choose among different optional streams of specialization in different Universities and countries. According to the chosen area or region of interest, students will attend the 3rd semester in the University specialized in that particular field or situated in a specific geographical area. The final semester is for Master thesis and can be performed virtually in any of the four partner universities. In addition to the delivery of managerial content, the program facilitates and stimulates the participation to the social, economical, cultural life of the hosting Countries (e.g. with courses of local language, seminars of local managers, Company visits).
All teaching activities are in English. A significant amount of these take an interactive approach, through extensive use of group-based work, case studies and seminars in order to stimulate dialogue and learning from the diverse experiences of students and teachers.

The Master Thesis is completely integrated in the educational programme as an opportunity for the student to apply what he/she has learned during the previous semesters, with a multi functional and integrative approach. It is a broad project that the IMIM consortium organises in collaboration with universities, industrial and service companies, and other organisations.

Types of MT

  • MT performed in academic institutions (universities members of the consortium or other European institutions; for students without the EM scholarship, third countries having agreements with IMIM consortium)
  • MT performed in companies
  • MT performed in other organizations (foundations, public administrations,....)
  • MT is defined by a clear set of objectives, by expected outcome and by main milestones.

An expert IMIM tutor supervises the student's activities mentoring and directing the development of the project. An academic tutor from one of the consortium universities is always responsible for the follow up of the MT. There can be other tutors who may act as external tutors The student conducts an autonomous work with defined responsibilities, toward the achievement of the stated objectives, considering a wide range of managerial aspects and adopting different tools. The Master Thesis is a wonderful opportunity to blend the knowledge of different subjects and take an integrated and practical view of the issues addressed during classes.
