The 2-year Master Post Graduate Degree in Economics and Management of Innovation (LM-56) provides graduates with a solid professional framework so that they are prepared to identify and create entrepreneurial opportunities or assume innovative management roles within companies. Post-graduate students will learn to manage innovative projects and evaluate business projects and plans, to transform ideas into responsible projects, products and services that will benefit their communities..

The curriculum provides the tools of economic and business theory and quantitative methodologies applied to the analysis of big data, market forecasting, and business analysis & planning. The degree also provides students with a sound knowledge of issues related to the management of innovative processes in different industrial contexts, analyzing both the economic models of the diffusion of innovation and the management aspects (economic-financial, strategic, marketing, operations, organizational behaviour) that characterize the innovation processes in companies.


  • Highly interactive methodologies: our lessons are conducted with a limited number of students which makes it possible to effectively apply innovative experiential methodologies based on team-working, discussion, problem-solving, analysis and the resolution of case studies.
  • A strong investment in the development of students’ personal skills (problem-solving, decision-making, communication, teamwork), essential competencies for successful entry in the job market. This is also achieved through individual coaching.
  • The construction of solid quantitative analysis skills, increasingly in demand in the job market.

Training objectives and career opportunities

In the current business climate, the ability to innovate is of crucial importance when competing in any business, and the skills underpinning it are essential to core management roles.

The student will acquire transdisciplinary knowledge related to the economic, business, legal and quantitative methodologies, and at the same time will hone skills in:

  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Finance
  • Administration and control
  • Organization and human resource management
  • Production and logistics

This combination of knowledge and skills will enable the graduate to manage any organizational context and to launch business initiatives and implement business ideas with highly innovative content.

These skills will be marketable in all industrial areas, with an additional focus on sectors with highly innovative content (pharma and biotechnology, ICT, high tech manufacturing, advanced services, telecommunications, etc.).

The 2-year Master Post Graduate Degree, in close collaboration with the Job Placement Office – dedicated to the search for job opportunities and professional experience for undergraduates and graduates – is constantly engaged in the search for professional work placement opportunities that are in line with students’ expectations and aptitudes.

Through the choice of professional internships and the support that professors offer in choosing the final thesis, we guarantee students personalized support and orientation to help them achieve professional and personal confidence and satisfaction.

This personal growth is accomplished by the additional course input of event participation by managers and business and organizational leaders, presentations of company cases, orientation days, workshops dedicated to the development of soft skills, company visits, simulations of real situations (company evaluations, presentations to top management teams, financial forecasts, etc.).

A constant openness to the diversity and complexity of companies, roles and possible specializations, allows our graduates to identify and achieve their career goals.
