The programme also offers, through close collaboration with associated industrial and service companies, the chance for students to combine practical and relevant knowledge and skills with invaluable industry experience. 5 Different Study Locations Around the World Education is performed in a highly internationalised environment with the possibility to spend the 4 semesters of the course in up to 4 different countries across Europe and Asia. The student experience is highly international and goes beyond the classroom. Students come from around 24 nations and participate in language courses, seminars with local managers and company visits in the host country. The International Master of Industrial Management is a collaborative master between MIP Politecnico di Milano, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Herriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. Students will also have the possibility of attending the 3rd semester and undertaking the master thesis in TUM School of Management, Germany. Alternatively, they can opt to spend their 3rd semester in Beijing Jiaotong University School of Economics and Management, China. The master is ideally designed for students with a technical or scientific background and seeks to develop the managerial skills and competencies needed to pursue managerial careers in internationally orientated manufacturing and service industries. The programme is taught entirely in English and students have the opportunity to study in a number of renowned universities across Europe and the world.
