MBA Innovation Management

Bologna Business School

Innovation and entrepreneurial skills are increasingly becoming fundamental requirements for the success of a business today. The MBA in Innovation Management/Mechanics & Automation enhances both aspects, shaping managers and entrepreneurs capable of creating value and making the difference. All of which is made possible by strong relationships with a unique regional environment, formed by enterprises operating in advanced mechanics, in industrial automation and manufacturing.

Bologna Business School draws upon the strength of the Emilia Romagna region, a longstanding national and international leader in the field, providing participants with a direct channel to experts, scholars and business leaders whom are all actively working towards bringing the future closer. Innovation requires the creativity and commitment of an entire organization with managers who are capable of mastering the borderless nature of Innovation Management and guide it expertly. To complement our regional leaders is an international faculty and a class with participants of over 30 nationalities.

The Global MBA in Mechanics and Automation is a 12 month full-time program, taught entirely in English. This program is dedicated to students who already have a solid working background. During the first term, class activities will focus on general management, while starting from the second term, participants will study specialized subjects regarding Mechanics and Automation. The program is complete when students complete a 500 hour internship. The internship will help students to improve their problem solving skills, apply their newly developed knowledge as well as give them the opportunity to face actual situations that arise within the business world.

Our programs provide an exciting and fulfilling learning experience by offering optimal class sizes, by integrating real-life case studies, as well as by providing students with the opportunity become a part of the BBS community.


The Master’s degree is a 12-month full-time program including 518 hours of class activities, 1300 hours of individual and group work and a 500 hour internship.

The academic portion is divided into three terms. During the first term students will study the fundamentals of general management, while the second and third term will concentrate on the specific subjects of each track.
