We’ve created this flexible programme by keeping in mind all those talented professionals who want to get top managerial skills without taking a break from their career. If you choose this part-time MBA, you’ll have face-to-face teaching on just one weekend each month.

Are you interested in a truly international MBA experience? Our students at POLIMI GSoM take part in two International Weeks as per the academic calendar, and you’ll also have colleagues from all around the world, lectures held by Visiting Professors from our partner business schools and a good number of exchange programmes.

You will also have the unique opportunity to learn directly from experienced multinational company managers.

Last but not least, you will have our Personal & Career Development activities to develop your soft skills and design an effective career plan.

Here are the top 5 reasons why an International Part-Time MBA with us at POLIMI GSoM will be a game-changer for you.


Our International Part-Time MBA will give you the chance to gain an internationally recognised qualification without taking a break from your career. The programme’s flexibility makes it perfect for you to organise your studies around your professional and personal schedule, since you’ll have face-to-face teaching on one weekend each month. What’s more, all our on-campus lessons are combined with multimedia content delivered on our digital learning platform (D-HUB).


We have a truly international experience waiting for you. You will fly to two European destinations and take part in two intensive International Weeks, where you will attend classes, visit companies and take part in social events. You will also be part of an international class.

You will have contact with international companies by talking directly with managers during lessons at POLIMI GSoM. Through our classes held with companies, you will have the chance to get the inside track on multinational market leaders, meet top executives and be taught by leading professionals in each field.


Our MBA programme will give you completely new ways of thinking about entrepreneurship and innovation. With us, you’ll also have a unique opportunity to use PoliHub – the Politecnico di Milano’s in-house start-up incubator, to develop your own business venture or new product idea.


Our Career Development Centre will help you develop your self-awareness and personal brand, by giving you the right growth opportunities in your career post-MBA. Participate in the networking events offered throughout our programme including roundtables, career events, and business talks.

The programme lasts for 20 months and lessons are held on one weekend each month, with the following schedule:

Friday: Lessons are held with us at POLIMI GSoM from 10:00 am to 8:30 pm. Lessons held with companies run from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Saturday: Lessons are held at POLIMI GSoM from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.
These face-to-face lessons are combined with multimedia content delivered on our digital learning platform (D-HUB).

We record all of our lessons at POLIMI GSoM, and give you access to everything through D-HUB, giving you extreme flexibility and the chance to catch up or go deeper into the material at any time during your Master.

You will also have the chance to network with companies through classes that we hold on their premises, as well as through our lectures given by Executive Managers from international companies.

This programme issues a “1st level Master” degree from Politecnico di Milano for those who already meet the university requirements.


During the programme, you will fly to two European destinations where you will attend international lectures, company visits, and social events. The first International Week takes place in autumn of the first year. During this week, you will have the chance to break the ice and build team spirit with your fellow students at EADA in Barcelona, a top-ranking business school situated in one of the most dynamic and beautiful cities in Spain.

The second International week will take place in autumn of the second year, and you will have the opportunity to attend classes at another European Business School.


In Spring 2025, you can customise your learning path by deciding to take part in either of these interactive experiences:
Management Bootcamp
Doing Business In 
International Exchange Programme


You will wrap up the programme by putting theory into action through a consultancy project in the area that you are interested in. You can implement this project in your own company or in one of your classmates’ companies. You could even develop a new business idea with the support of us at POLIMI GSoM, benefiting from access to PoliHub – the Politecnico di Milano’s in-house start-up incubator. That way, you can develop your idea using a tool that is ranked second in Europe.

Are you interested in a truly international MBA experience? Our students take part in several exchange programmes offered by the business schools of the POLIMI GSoM International Network. These exchanges give you strategic exposure to an interesting panel of topics and a different educational approach. During our MBA programme, you are given the chance to attend some courses abroad with our International Exchange Programme. Our Partner Business Schools are:

  1. AUDENCIA, Nantes (France)
  2. IAE, Aix-Marseille (France)
  3. MCI, Innsbruck (Austria)
  4. NEOMA, Mont-Saint-Aignan (France)

At POLIMI GSoM there are no limits. That’s why we offer the exciting opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner international business schools.
For one week you will study the specific social and economic aspects of your chosen country. You will divide your time between classroom lessons, held by professors from our partner universities, and company visits to local and multinational businesses. You will get to study success stories and understand the challenges involved in multicultural management.


Ramp up your skillset with our dual degree option! This dual programme makes it possible for you to study in two schools in two different countries and enjoy everything that both cultures have to offer. Add to that the fact that you also gain exposure to two ways of doing business and two different networks of professionals. If you are an International MBA candidate, you can choose to do a Dual Degree programme option with MIT Center of Transportation & Logistics, Boston, USA. After you have finished the MBA with us at POLIMI GSoM, you can also attend an extra year in the USA to gain even more experience. We recommend this if you have a strong interest in supply chain and logistics. At the end of this Dual Programme, you will get a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from us at POLIMI GSoM as well as a Master in Supply Chain Management and Logistics from the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics.
