What does it train you for?

Companies, which are responsible for driving the economic growth of every Country, are very complex systems that require specialized and professional skills to be managed. Management engineers employing quantitative tools and methodological rigor, elements typical of engineering sciences, find solutions for managerial and organizational problems so reaching high levels of efficacy and effectiveness and achieving a continuous improvement of business results. Therefore, the education of management engineers requires a set of skills that encompass technological, productive, economic, organizational, managerial, and even sociological and psychological disciplines, and contribute to reaching a full understanding of all business phenomena. In sum, a management engineer is called on to solve technical, economic, managerial and organizational problems in both manufacturing and service companies by leveraging methods and skills that characterize engineering sciences. For this reason, the Bachelor Degree in Management Engineering of the Univerisità di Palermo trains management engineers and responds to the needs of transversal skills that are increasingly required by the world of work and by companies. Particularly, the multiplicity of skills that distinguish a graduate in Management Engineering supports the interaction among the various company actors, allowing a more effective management of the company.
