MIBE Pillars

  1. International environment Started in 2009, throughout the academic years the course has built a very strong reputation in the international academic environment. It has attracted students from all over Italy and all over the world. The number of enrolled students has almost doubled, reaching a high percentage of foreign students (more than 30%). In addition to this, more than a third of the enrolled students have taken part in a double-degree program, thanks to the agreements with 10 foreign partner universities. All this contributes to a highly rich international environment with a lively cultural scenario and a multidisciplinary approach to higher education.
  2. Balancing in-depth theory and practical experience Lectures are a well-studied blend of theory and practice, with a strong focus on class discussion stimulation, case studies, teamwork, simulation projects, business games, and workshops. MIBE project also shows innovative teaching methods, including an e-learning platform, and business games (jointly with well-known companies), ‘Call for Ideas’ is aimed at bringing together students coming from different departments (economics & management, biotechnology, engineers, software developers, etc.), working on a business plan for new ventures.
  3. Unique experience First of all: our students develop a strong feeling of belonging to a community, the community of ‘Mibers’. They feel that MIBE is a label, a distinctive mark: a nice one, to wear and recognize. Secondly: because of the unique atmosphere of the University of Pavia, one of the oldest universities in Europe (founded in 1361). The university is also well-known for its students’ accommodation system consisting of 20 students’ residences (the so-called “college”), where thousands of students live, study, and play sports. Furthermore, Pavia is a lovely small medieval town, which feeds that special sense of community, but at the same time offers the opportunity to reach a metropolis like Milan in a very short time (only 35 kilometers away, with an excellent train connection).
