A key element of the programme is the three-month Action Project, a unique learning-by-doing opportunity to put into practice and further develop the competencies and skills acquired during the Master. A tailor-made tutoring process will accompany and support you in undertaking your Action Project.
The Master offers four types of Action Project:
- Consultancy project: a concrete opportunity for you to test your problem-solving, project management and teamwork skills, by supporting a company interested in internationalisation, or with entrepreneurial or market development plans
- Business plan: your chance to develop either an original business and marketing plan for your start-up or a strategic development plan for an existing company such as your family-owned business
- Research study: an opportunity to produce an academic paper, elaborating on a specific topic covered by the programme.
- Internship: a real on-the-job experience and a first step on your future career path, made possible by ALTIS' extensive network of companies, institutions and associations. A fluent knowledge of the Italian language is a pre-requisite to find an internship in Italy.
The comprehensive training which the Master provides across all company functions is reflected in the track record of previous participants, who have proved highly adaptable in taking up employment in a wide range of industry sectors and job functions. The graphs here reported show historical data relating to previous internships, the first step in most of our students' professional careers.
