The second stage (6 months) will be dedicated to on-the-job training through a 6-month internship at the Group, either in Italy or abroad, which will be carried out under the guidance of a company tutor and will act as the basis for the Master’s dissertation.

All students will have access to learning materials and video-recorded lectures that will be uploaded onto an online platform, where they may be viewed until graduation.
