MAIN is a two-year full-time Master's programme (laurea magistrale) that equips home and international students with theoretical and applied knowledge of innovation management, practical experiences and personal skills. Specifically, it provides sound knowledge of the innovation processes across industries and an in-depth understanding of the innovative dynamics at the company level.
MAIN is jointly organized by the University of Trento and the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies of Pisa. Innovation today - and in the future - is mainly an innovation in 'service', which requires an interdisciplinary approach blending technology, management, computer science, economics, organizational behavior and leadership, according to the Service Science approach. Graduates and young professionals from different backgrounds are constantly exposed to a mix of world-wide cultures. They learn to think strategically in order to identify, manage and shape the innovative trajectory of the firm, with the aim of leading it to success in the competitive arena.
During the internship experience, students also gain the practical know-how to select the best innovative strategies for private and public institutions, with a strong focus on the service sector.
