"I started MIBE more than 10 years ago and I still feel so connected to that wonderful time!

During the University time I had the opportunity to spend one year in Pavia and eighteen months abroad: studying in Odense Campus in Denmark, and then working as an intern in a multinational company based in Stuttgart, Germany.

I think that the international context that a MIBE student live from the first day is a great and powerful opportunity to exploit for the personal and professional growth. 

This helped me to be selected for a "Graduate Program" within a Multinational Company based in Milan,  just right after my Master degree. 

After nine years of professional experience, five positions and three different locations , today I cover a managerial role in the Strategic Marketing Team as Southern Europe Project Manager.

I can only say that MIBE is for sure a choice that I would do again!"

The Master in International Business and Entrepreneurship (MIBE) was more than just a degree for me; it was a journey that expanded my worldview and professional skills.

Meeting people from all over the world at MIBE gave me a wide range of viewpoints, helping me understand how global business works.

The curriculum, a perfect balance between theory and practice, pushed me to think beyond conventional boundaries. It honed my analytical abilities, essential in the complex world of business.

Group projects and interactions with industry experts during the program were particularly transformative, offering insights that textbooks alone could never provide.Networking and real-world experiences at MIBE opened doors to incredible opportunities, shaping my professional approach.

This journey of innovation, learning, and global connections at MIBE was pivotal in leading me to my current role as an Audit Assistant in one of the world’s leading audit and consulting firms in Milan.

My MIBE degree and being a MIBEr is what set me apart from the other candidates when applying for jobs. My two years in Italy were incredible, and I'll never forget it.

I just graduated from the MIBE program under the International Management track, and it has become one of the best decisions I made for myself and my future.

I got to meet alot of amazing people from all over the world, study abroad in Italy which was a dream of mine since I was a little girl, and learn everyday innovative skills that will remain in me for the rest of my professional journey.

In the end, what started as a dream became a reality and it is an honor to be part of the MIBE community and to have a place in Italy that I can call home.

"As a recent MIBE graduate, I can confidently affirm that my journey throughout the program has been a chapter filled with growth, knowledge, and unforgettable memories.

I was drawn to MIBE due to its forward-thinking curriculum, which combines theoretical learning with practical application, alongside its strong international focus. Indeed, the program's emphasis on practical projects allowed me to apply theoretical knowledge effectively, preparing me for the complexities of the real business world. The skills I've acquired – both technical and interpersonal – have been instrumental in preparing me for the professional path, especially during my internship.

Thanks to the numerous study opportunities available abroad, I had the chance to spend my second year at EM Strasbourg Business School in France through the Double Degree Program. This experience significantly broadened my horizons, giving me a global perspective and enriching experiences that profoundly shaped my understanding of international business practices and cultures.

To conclude, what truly sets MIBE apart is its supportive ecosystem. The accessibility of professors and the network of students, both past and present, have been fundamental sources of support throughout my journey in the program. The benefits I gained from this program extend beyond academic content, teaching me the essence of learning within a supportive and constructive environment, and experiencing the sense of belonging to an inspiring community.

For aspiring students seeking a comprehensive educational experience that extends beyond traditional learning, I wholeheartedly recommend MIBE."

MIBE is a great experience that opens a lot of doors for international students. Courses are perfectly designed so the students can learn theoretically and apply it by doing different projects from the real business world. The professional and friendly approach from the MIBE team; the administrative office, professors, and colleagues, left a strong impression on me that I would recommend this experience to anyone.

The program can provide students with international opportunities since the university itself has a lot of offers for Double Degrees and Erasmus+ programs by which they can finish their studies in other countries. Both the Double Degree and Erasmus+ programs took me to Germany where I spent the 2nd year of the MIBE program and thus enabled me to obtain two degrees in two years. I am truly thankful for this journey and to all the people who participated in it.

MIBE takes a clear stance: For aspiring leaders only. In an increasingly digital, international and sustainability-demanding world, this means taking responsibility for your actions: on a small scale, but also on a large scale! This is what fascinated me and drew my attention to MIBE. The programme delivered exactly on that promise - students quickly learn to take responsibility especially in the context of integrated projects and use unconventional approaches to address problems in the 'practical' world.

What particularly excited me? MIBE is a pioneer when it comes to future orientation - I was able to gain valuable skills regarding innovation and sustainability.

Where did it lead me? The insights I gained during the programme created a solid foundation for my own entrepreneurial endeavours. I decided to work on founding a company with impact orientation and stakeholder approach - right after graduation. The time in the charming student city Pavia allowed me to broaden my horizons and taught me the valuable lesson 'con la pazienza s'acquista scienza' - this patience to acquire knowledge and wisdom I will take with me as a way of life. It might well be possible that the university slogan 'il sapere che ti cambia la vita' becomes a reality…

I completed the MIBE programme in 2022. I am originally from Stuttgart, in southern Germany. I like to describe my “mission of life” as being a responsible-minded entrepreneur.


I chose the MIBE programme, because I was looking for an international- and future-oriented programme with focus on entrepreneurship. In the retrospective, MIBE and the University of Pavia proved to be the best decision!  The programme laid the basis for my entrepreneurial journey, particularly with the cornerstone topics of sustainability, innovation, and international entrepreneurship.

During the programme I have acquired applicable skills through the project works within interesting and “ahead-of-the-time” courses. What I am especially grateful for are the social and interpersonal relationships that develop and last beyond the study period. Noteworthy are the relationships with international fellow students, the direct contact with professors and the strong assistance in administrative aspects.


I am looking forward to providing a case study for the programme and to encourage future MIBErs to be leaders of a meaningful change in our society and the world!

As a former Miber, I can confirm that earning a Master's double degree in MIBE is a highly valuable achievement that can open many doors in the field of international business and entrepreneurship.

Thanks to the deep understanding of the global business landscape, including the challenges and opportunities that arise when conducting business across borders, I have been facilitated in attending the Real Madrid MBA in sport management, which is providing me with numerous contacts in the world of sports.

This degree demonstrates the ability to take on challenging coursework and successfully navigate complex business scenarios. Overall, in my opinion, MIBE is a significant investment in one's future that can lead to exciting opportunities and professional growth in any field.'

MIBE has been a turning point of my life. Coming from another country with humanitarian bachelor degree, MIBE gave me what I was looking for: solid knowledge of Digital marketing & Innovation management, possibility to study within international environment and to apply theoretical background into practice. With certainty I can say that MIBE is a foundation for my fast-growing consulting carrier.
