A Master Programme in Business and Ceramic Technology is being launched, applications must be submitted by 13 September

Confindustria Ceramica and Federchimica Ceramicolor, together with the Universities of Bologna and Modena – Reggio Emilia, are the promoters of the 2nd level Master in Business and Ceramic Technology, addressed to master graduates in engineering and scientific, economic and environmental subjects.

Directed by Professor Tiziano Manfredini of Unimore and co-directed by Professor Maria Chiara Bignozzi of the University of Bologna, it is the result of an analysis on training needs, with respect to managerial and top figures, of the businesses in the ceramic industry, for which a demand of 250 units has been estimated in five years’ time.

The objective of the programme is to train a multidisciplinary professional figure, experienced in business and ceramic technology, specifically skilled on the competitive dynamics of the sector, on product and manufacturing process management, providing advanced skills on the process, the product, and of economic/commercial nature on the ceramic tile product. Students attending the programme will therefore gain deep expertise on product development and manufacturing process, crossed with marketing and commercial knowledge for an all-round view of the sector.

The one-year programme is made of classroom lessons and internships, with teachings relating to ceramic design, product and process technology, logistics, product standardisation and validation, environmental sustainability, marketing and project management. The programme features a strong involvement of ceramic tile businesses and colour manufacturers, both in the educational activities - through lectures and guided visits to businesses by corporate managers - and in company internships, offered in fully operational contexts and for 3-month periods. The number of hours amounts to 1,500, including 320 hours of traditional lectures, 280 hours dedicated to training (guided visits, witnesses, laboratory, etc.), 400 destined to personal study, 400 in internships, and 100 for the preparation of the final exam.

It will require a full-time weekly attendance (7 hours per day), compulsory for 70% of the hours provided. Regular tests will also be provided. Students completing the programme and passing the final examination will be given a Master diploma equivalent of 60 University Training Credits (CFUs).

The master programme will start at the end of October 2019 and finish at the end of July 2020.

Lessons will be held in Modena at the “Enzo Ferrari” Department of Engineering (via Vivarelli 10/1), as well as in Sassuolo at Confindustria Ceramica (viale Monte Santo 38) and at Centro Ceramico (via Valle d’Aosta 1).
