We contribute to disseminating knowledge in leadership, design and innovation
within different kinds of educational training programs for students and professionals.

Leadin’ Lab operates within Politecnico di Milano in providing academic training,
mostly concerning pre-experience programs for students
on the threshold of a professional career, and the PhD program.

On the other hand, we collaborate with the MIP Business School in training
those who have already started a professional career,
within executive and corporate training courses.



We address graduate and undergraduate students
who want to deepen fundamental knowledge and skills in leadership,
innovation and design for their future professional careers.


We address professionals, entrepreneurs or managers
who want to acquire new tools and knowledge in leadership, innovation
and design without giving up personal work commitments.
