What does it train you for?

Conceived as a tech-MBA and specifically designed for students with a Bachelor Degree in Engineering, the Master Degree in Management Engineering at the Università di Palermo allows students to complement the in-depth knowledge and the way of thinking gained during their engineering background, with the ability to take strategic decisions and tackle management issues. Management engineers are managers with advanced quantitative problem-solving skills, capable of managing companies that operate in increasingly complex, international and technologically advanced environments. The program is inherently multidisciplinary and integrates high-level management skills with in-depth technical competences in several areas, such as operations and supply chain, finance, economics, project management, innovation, strategy, logistics, and technology management.

What do you learn?

The Management Engineering program is entirely taught in English and is divided into three discipline blocks:

  • Methodological disciplines which include the methodological basis of the second level management engineer such as advanced statistical methods and tools for management engineering, business process modeling techniques, project management methodology and software;
  • Core disciplines which study the main business functions of every company, such as marketing, corporate finance, strategy, operations and supply chain, technological innovation and human resources;
  • Elective (focus) disciplines which relate to more specific topics such as sustainable technologies, public sector economics, industrial safety, technology analysis, smart manufacturing.
The educational model of the program is strongly based on active learning and the courses are taught using several teaching methods: lectures, practical sessions, case studies, flipped classroom, and in-class discussion. Students are involved in practical-based labs and project works developed in a team where they can experience real challenges and apply the skills, methods and knowledge acquired.
