And the best thing? Having an employee do an IMM with us means that you can get immediate concrete benefits, as they put into practice the skills they’ve learnt and become a promoter of workplace innovation.

We help our students find new ways to lead their teams with purpose and efficiency, which has a direct impact on your company. Being able to talk about their results and leadership progress with classmates and lecturers also lets them solve real-life problems during class.

An employee that is up to date on modern techniques and tools can bring you higher revenue, lower costs, increased efficiency, better decision making and much, much more. 

Boost Employee Retention

As the old saying goes, you get out what you put in. By investing in the training of your employees, you’re actively enhancing your resources, improving your business with top-notch talent, and improving employee retention.

Save Money and Maximise your Return on Investment

Our Global EMBA students immediately put their new skills into practice in their companies and organisations. We’ve seen them become smart decision makers, effective problem solvers, and well-prepared leaders able to take on increasing responsibilities.

And in the long run, your company can make sizeable savings by training the managers you already have, rather than paying for consultants or employing highly qualified new workers. In fact, data shows that more than 50% of IMM alumni have saved their companies $12 million a year (Purdue survey).

Cultivate a virtuous circle of learning

Don’t just stop with one of your employees, why not train up a whole team?

If your company has multiple employee enrolments, you will be able to get special fee reductions on their POLIMI GSoM managerial courses. This includes the courses included in our POLIMI GSoM Management Academy.

We’ve made this an option so you can give your employees a widespread training programme, developing a virtuous circle of learning and shifting your entire company another step into the future.
