The planning of the university educational offer is an activity that involves, in addition to the university bodies as the Program Board, the Department, the Academic Senate and the University Board of Directors, also the external stakeholders most appropriate to the character and objectives of the courses. The external stakeholders of programs in Management Engineering include organizations and institutions potentially interested in the cultural and professional profiles of graduates, such as organizations representing the production of goods and services, professions, scientific societies, research centers, academic and cultural institutions of national or international relevance.
The stakeholders can be represented by an Advisory Board, composed of members from industry, scientific and technological research. The establishment of the Advisory Board also responds to the guidelines of the National Agency for the Evaluation of the University System and Research (ANVUR).
The program direction in Management Engineering established in April 2018 an Advisory Board for the following programs:
- three-year Bachelor degree in Management Engineering (class L-9);
- two-year Master's degree in Management Engineering (class LM-31).
The main objectives of the Advisory Board are as follows:
1- to facilitate and promote the relationships between the university and the economic and productive sector;
2- to analyze the information available on the programs in management engineering, including their study plans, the teaching programs, the employment and satisfaction surveys of graduates and companies;
3 – to improve information on professional skills needs in the areas of Management Engineering, also through the use of external sources (sector studies, reports made by national and international organizations) in order to promote a broader understanding of the trends in the labor market and the evolution of training needs;
4- to close the gap between the programs in Management Engineering to the needs of industry;
5- to evaluate the effectiveness of the university programs;
The Coordinator of the Programs, on the mandate of the Program Board, annually meets the Advisory Board.
