From October. This international training course offered by the Politecnico di Milano and managed by POLI.design trains new managers who use design as a lever to innovate products, services and to create new business formulas and start-ups.

International companies such as Air France, Dynamo Camp and Sirap will build new business models together with the students on the Master’s degree of POLI.design, Politecnico di Milano. Registration is open now, with classes scheduled to commence in October 2019. Some financial assistance has been organised to help students attend.
