Learning is a holistic experience – it’s about much more than classes and books. It’s a journey made up of the people you meet, the atmosphere you breathe and the places you visit along the way.

That’s why choosing where to study is as important as choosing what to study.
Deciding on POLIMI Graduate School of Management means not only picking a top-ranking business school, but also one that is deeply rooted in Italy.
Have you ever thought about living in a country whose way of life is the envy of the entire world? In a place where you can be surrounded by history, art and some of the world’s best culinary delights every day, midway between stunning ski slopes and alluring coastlines?

Italy is that place. But there’s more.


Our School is based in Milan, Italy’s dynamic international capital of business, design and innovation.

Milan’s vibrant cultural atmosphere and rich entrepreneurial tradition attracts millions of visitors from all over the world every year. Not to mention the fact that it is one of the worlds’ most important financial hubs – an ideal place to foster those all-important networking skills.

In short, this is quite simply one of the best places to live.

It seems like there’s no end to the cultural gems found here.
Teatro alla Scala, Palazzo Reale, the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Mudec, Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci, La Triennale… what a gorgeous melting pot of skills and originality.
These are just some of the cultural centres offering unmissable exhibitions all year round. We also have two unmissable cult locations that preserve the post-industrial feel. Pirelli Hangar Bicocca is where culture emerges from the ashes of industry, and Fondazione Prada is an eclectic, open-plan space offering up entertainment, temporary exhibitions, and permanent installations.

Fashion in Milan, is a veritable institution.

Ah, but don’t think we forgot to mention fashion! In Milan it’s a veritable institution, going straight from the catwalk and landing right at your feet. For us, fashion is life: luxury, style and the very latest trends are key aspects of our unique culture. It’s the perfect opportunity to max out on elegance and maybe indulge in a little quality shopping.

Last but not least, Milan’s position puts it in easy reach of breathtaking cities like Venice, Rome and Florence.

Just pop on the train and you’ll be there in no time.
City tourism not your thing? Well, don’t forget about Lake Maggiore and Como, around an hour away by train, or the Alps, which are so close that you can even see them from the roof of the Duomo.

Come and visit us, and maybe Milan will become your heart too.
