MBA MIP Politecnico di Milano - Dual Degree Program with MIT Boston Supply Chain Management


marcor89
Hi All,

First of all I want to thank you all for sharing your opinions and experiences in this website. It's all very useful.

I'm thinking about to apply for MIP Full time MBA with exchange program with MIT (Massachussets Institute of Technology), Boston in which I'll get MBA degree from MIP and Master degree in Supply Chain Management from MIT. Given that the MIP MBA program is probably the best choice for me due to the value for money and my wallet, i would like to ask some things:

- I have part of my family in Boston and a professional background in Supply Chain Management and Trasports (last few months as middle management level), and this is the reason why this program is so attractive for me. But I have a doubt: i was looking for a MBA because I want to broaden my hard skills and try to switch my career in other fields like consulting, e-commerce management, luxury management, retail or technology.
Is this program a chance to broaden my career chances or will it further restrict the field? In simple terms: the MIT Master degree in SCM will stand above my MBA degree? Or I have to consider it as a further opportunity in case i will not manage to switch my career in those fields?

- Do somebody have any experience or anecdotes about MIP Politecnico di Milano placement? I know i'm not talking about Harvard or London Business School and tec., but i heard they have a good connections with a lot of companies and also this is the best program I can afford. I had a positive feedback for a loan. But I do not want to find myself in the situation of not being able to pay this loan.

- Also do somebody have any informations about salary range and/or job position after an MBA with MIP? Ofc this is not only thing in which i'm interested, but i already did my research on the program, and I like it.

Thanks to all in advance.

Obviously this is a double degree programme not an exchange programme: in an exchange, you would pay MIP tutition and students would come to MIP from MIT to fill your seat. MIP alumni have starting salaries lower than MIT's European alumni from the supply chain masters in Zaragoza. It's 50k to 70k€ versus 70k to 90k at Zaragoza. You will get a better RoI from taking one now, and then doing the other in a few years.

Thanks for your reply Duncan.
So do you suggest to apply to a normal MIP MBA program (no dual degree with MIT) and then consider to apply to another Master in SCM in Zaragoza next years?

And what’s your opinion on first point? Will MIT master degree help me to increase my chance or excessively restrict the field preventing me from a possible career switch?

Also what do you think about MIP placement?

Hi Duncan, i’ve just talked with a MIP recruiter and the Master program at MIT costs USD 68000 in addition to the MIP fee of 32000 euro. Definitively not worth it.

So at this point if somebody has any experience or anecdotes about MBA at MIP and their placement office/service, please share with us under this post.

The Zaragoza masters is cheaper than MIP and has a higher starting salary. So I think the choice is between those two. Do you speak Italian and Spanish? Maybe the language is the choice? Both schools have placement reports and alumni you can compare on LinkedIn.

I think it's certainly worth it for a specific group of people, who want to develop their networks in both Italy and the US, and want the MIT brand on their resume, which is highly prestigious.

You’re right Razors. I said that badly. I meant I can’t afford those double fees. And if so, i’d preferred to put that money on a MBA program instead of a Master despite I’d love to work some years in US and my SCM background.

Unless you are American or marry an American, it's very unlikely that the MIT option would lead to work in the USA. Also look at the MIT partner programmes in Luxembourg and Malaysia. They will have good placement,
