Innovation-based competition is now a reality across all business sectors. The digital revolution is strongly affecting the behavior of both firms and regulators. In order to survive in hyper-competitive markets, companies have to innovate more frequently and more radically.

This program aims at providing cutting-edge frameworks and methodologies to help face this challenge. Students will develop strong expertise both in terms of technology and management. Hard and soft sciences are combined to deliver high-level courses across a broad landscape including system software, artificial intelligence, biomechanical & 3D printing, econometrics, platform economy, and innovation management and design. Students will have the opportunity to tailor the program to fit their own interests and career outlooks.

Objectives
