Innovation and technology management

The Master of Science in Innovation and Technology Management (ITEM) is a two-year program, taught entirely in English, and designed for students who want to develop multidisciplinary skills suited to the new business contexts generated by the innovations that accompany the so-called Industry 4.0.

The program wants to create flexible professional profiles capable of understanding the potential of product and process technologies and generating new market spaces as well as new business opportunities.
