This Advanced Master is a 12 month International Master program offered in partnership with MIP Politecnico di Milano. It consists of a fall term in Milan (at MIP Politecnico di Milano) and a spring term in Brussels (at Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management). The program is taught entirely in English.

Whether you wish to become an entrepreneur, a project manager in a small or big organisation or a consultant, this Advanced Master will help you acquire the competences to build your success. By joining this truly unique program, you will develop your ability to spot new market opportunities, to design suitable innovation strategies and to build a new organisation, while constantly experimenting your skills and creativity in very different settings.

Over the program, you will develop a sound set of competences that will give you the right mindset to master a complex environment where increasing speed of change, uncertainty, the emergence of new technologies and the broadening of global markets constantly challenge us.

To operate successfully in such complexity, you will have to think and act as an entrepreneur and an innovative leader. And this is exactly what you will learn, not only in the classroom, but mainly on the field during the multiple project-oriented courses that will shape your experience in Milan and Brussels.

Overview of Courses

Fall term courses: entrepreneurial thinking & acting, design-driven innovation, marketing for entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial finance, leadership & change management, social & sustainable innovation, markets & technology of the future, project management.

Spring term courses: innovation management, data analytics, financial analysis, strategy & growth.

Solvay’s teaching method blends in-depth lecture-based teaching, case-studies, design and experimentation labs, on-the-field training and exposure to mentorship and corporate projects.

Over the course of the program, participants will take part in two main field projects:

  1. The “New Venture Lab” where they will have to act as an entrepreneur to create a startup from scratch.

  2.  The “Innovation in Action Lab” where they will have to run a consulting assignment in an established small or medium enterprise.

During these projects, participants will be individually coached by the Faculty and professional consultants to maximize their on-the-job learning experience.
