"When I was researching different masters in innovation and found the MUCI programme I realized that it was much more complete than other offers. Therefore, I decided to apply. Thanks to the staff’s expertise in different areas, such as territorial development, innovation policy, and business competitiveness, I acquired plenty of knowledge about innovation. Furthermore, I developed research capabilities that led me to continue my academic formation in a doctorate programme. Nowadays, thanks to what I have learned during the MUCI I feel very confi dent about my research career in business innovation."
