What they say about MIHMEP

As a chemist, science takes an important place in my life and it is my greatest interest. Having worked in pharmaceutical industries as a laboratory analyst, I decided to take a great change in my career. So, I stopped my hands-on experience and I dedicated time and effort to new career goals. My purpose was to use the time I spent in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries as a stepping stone toward my dream job. To boost my perspective and to reach my objectives, I chose to attend the international School of Management offered by SDA Bocconi, whose courses best prepare and guide for a critical evaluation on brand development process and marketing strategies, that nowadays are of primary importance worldwide, in the job market. MIHMEP is an excellent opportunity for a comparative study, and to exchange ideas and experiences. I strongly believe that developing positive relationships is another fundamental benefit of the learning experience that I received through the MIHMEP program
