Participants are supported by a Business Coach, a dedicated business consultant that assists them in refining of their business idea, developing the business plan and establishing an industry network.

Relations with investors

Participants are given a minimum of three opportunities to pitch their project to a jury of investors.

Together with the degree from the local university, the program offers an MBA from the Catholic University of Milan, Italy, Europe’s largest private university.

International recognition 

The MBA is the first non-American program to receive the Ashoka Innovation Award.

Executive Formula

International Degree

The Global MBA in Impact Entrepreneurship awards a Master Degree from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy).



The Global MBA in Impact Entrepreneurship is structured as a “training camp” where each course directly responds to a concrete need that arises while implementing a start-up or scale-up strategy. The MBA courses are divided into two main categories: business courses and business labs.
