A revolution is coming to the University of Pavia. The beginning of the academic year 2016/2017 will bring the inntroduction of a new type of course — the Master Degree Plus (LM +). The unique aspect is the active role companies will play in the selecting of deserving students. Unlike a normal Master Degree, this will last five semesters, two of which working directly in a company.
The pilot courses of the Plus experience will be : Advanced Biotechnologies, Chemistry, Electronic Engineering, International Business/Entrepreneurship and Philosophy — though not all students will have access to the Master’s Degree Plus. The companies together with the university, will choose the most deserving students by analyzing their distinct abilities and work ethic. Those not be selected will still be able to follow the traditional degree course.
There are several companies that have expressed their interest in LM +. Several standouts include IBM, Siae Microelettronica, AMS Italy, Axélero, FacilityLive, Indena, Naicons, and ST Microelectronics.
This is an important innovation for us here at Career Paths — both in Italy and in Europe. The university does not abandon its leading purpose and now also considers direct professional training while welcoming companies to contribute to the development of careers of new generations
