Alberto Grimaldi received a dual degree in Industrial Production Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin and International Business and Supply Chain Management at EMLV Business School Paris- La Defense. He studied in Paris during the second and fifth years of his Master Program, which helped him launch an international career with Dennemeyer Group, an IP management global firm based in Luxembourg.
Since 1962, Dennemeyer Group opened more than 20 offices, on all continents. The company’s plan was to serve its customers wherever they want to protect their IP, in their language and in their time zone. At EMLV, Alberto was challenged academically and he also landed his first internship in a French company, not “any” company certainly: Generali Real Estate Paris.
From Italy to France
I had an admission test to join a limited number of students (15 students) that every year could enrol for this Management Engineering program, attending 1st year in Turin, 2nd in Paris, 3rd in Turin, 4th in Paris, 5th in Turin. At the end of the 5 years I graduated from both Politecnico di Torino with a Master of Science in Management and Industrial Engineering, and from EMLV with a Bachelor in Management.
How EMLV helped me in the business world
EMLV classes were really practical and business-oriented, and this was really useful to get out in the real world not just with theory but with practical experience gained also during 6 months internship (Generali Real Estate Paris).
