The training offered by the Master aims to introduce students to the management of investments in the real estate, construction, and infrastructure. The investment management starts from a correct valuation. For this, an introduction to the philosophy of "value investing" will be presented to students, as well as an introduction to the most important concepts of accounting. In this way, students will have the fundamental basis to evaluate an investment in the "micro" level. Attention will also be paid to the valuation of investments at the "macro". For this the students will discuss the key parameters that govern the performance of the markets. Cycles "secular" of expansion and contraction of the economy, as well as their sub-cycles, affecting all sectors of the market, but especially the real estate and construction have always been strongly influenced by them. After the evaluation of investments, will be presented to students the stages of their development. For this, the basics of project management and management control will be illustrated and explained, also deepening aspects of legal, both nationally and internationally. The Master trains prepared and qualified to assess real estate investments and to manage efficiently and effectively Master Plan, projects and construction sites of any complexity, in compliance with the regulations and requirements of time, cost and quality of the job. In the second half there will be a training period of 4-5 months at institutions of different types, as part of national and international projects of special interest. The internship for students of Master ONLINE tends proposed by the students themselves or, alternatively, is emerging as the final replacement exercise. Employment opportunities are identified in the Company of Real Estate Management, studies of Engineering and Architecture, Construction Companies, Technical Offices of public bodies, institutions and public or private agencies for the development of infrastructure and logistics. Fundamentals of Engineering Management The unit's goal is to bring the student to the fundamentals of management engineering. In particular the focus will be on the external accounts - the financial statements with related documents, basic accounting operations, reading of the budget and of the indices - on the inside - the main technical and management control, balance short and break-even analysis. It also places the focus on valuation of investments - valuation methods DCF and DCF, cash - on supply chain planning - outbound logistics, production, supplier evaluation and planning cycle and control - and ultimately on the management of projects - organization for projects, technical control lattice, planning and re-planning. An Introduction to Value Investing Before evaluating and, therefore, to manage property investments and / or infrastructure (and this also applies to investments of any kind whatsoever), you must know what to look for and where to look. The ideas of value investing are clear and simple, but reliable, guidelines for doing so. A real estate development company, first to quantitatively evaluate an investment, would do well to evaluate qualitatively, according to the ideas of Value Investing. The same could be suggested to a Company, that he was considering an intervention in project financing. Government: Policies and Procedures The unit aims to acquaint the student with what the bureaucracy, the timing, the procedures and charges, and financial planning, required by the Public Administration for the realization of real estate projects of varying complexity. Specifically, it will be defined as choosing the certificates of permission (Permissions Building, DIA, SCIA, CILA, etc.) and implement construction projects according to current regulations; how to start and manage building practices, clearances, the opinions of the various public bodies and conventions between public and private sectors for the development of implementation plans and Integrated Plans. The topics and case studies will be considered within the proposed body of legislation in force at the national level, updated with recent regulatory measures. The Customer in the management of a real estate project The unit examines the management of a real estate project from the point of view of private client starting from the definition of the project team with the identification and selection of the participants and the preparation of preliminary designs, final and executive, setting tender with the definition of tender documents, the selection of participants, the allocation of work and subsequent management of the contract until the renovation is complete. The Designer in building project / infrastructure The return that can provide a real estate investment is enough to justify the risk? First you need to define what the risk really is, what are the means to quantize it and what information they actually confer. After that, you can learn ways to control it and minimize it. The aim of the unit in question is to define, quantify, and control the risks associated with each investment property. Principles of forensic engineering The unit is designed to introduce students to the different forms and ways of resolving conflicts arising from contractual relationships between client, enterprise, suppliers and professionals. In particular, attention is focused on the central role of the engineer in technical support to preconflittuali phases, with the collection and analysis of the criteria for the conduct of the subsequent selection procedure to enforce the alleged violated rights for breach of contract. The unit also examines: the different methods of ADR, and compares with the ordinary trial; mediation as a new instrument permitting enforcement of a rapid definition of the conflict; the ad hoc arbitration and regulated. Finally, we analyze the different roles of the engineer as technical advisor to the judge, the PM and the party in relation to the activities for which it was commissioned. Certification Project Management (CAPM® and PMP®) The unit is designed to prepare students to quickly obtain prestigious certifications issued by PMI®, helping to understand the approaches, methods, techniques fundamental PMBOK® Guide. The course is structured in modules and includes classroom days side by side in exercises for the application of the techniques learned. The unit is valid as a training course required for registration and PMP® Exam CAPM®. Decision making - to avoid mistakes and make the right choice Every decision has a significant impact on our personal and professional lives. Every decision involves a number of risks or errors: defects of our senses purely perceptual assessments wrong for emotional interference, the cognitive conflict in our mind the difficulty of finding an agreement in the group, from brilliant insights in impulsivity not controlled, by weight risk (real or perceived) in contrast to the attraction (more or less founded) the possible benefits. The unit can expect addressed in a practical way all of these factors and others, to be able to monitor or use it to your advantage. They will also be discussed strategies and instruments to minimize the risks and maximize the benefits in every decision-making process. The unit alternates theoretical experiments firsthand of each issue addressed. Course NEBOSH IGC (International general Certificate) The unit aims to provide technical expertise: risk assessment, identification of preventive measures, planning, designing procedures to prevent or reduce the risks during the execution of work, identification of critical steps, ability to coordinate activities to avoid harmful interference, Emergency Management (Fire - accident - earthquake - attacks - natural disasters in general). The course is valid as a mandatory update and CSE, CSP D.lvo 81/08 and for obtaining the qualification RSPP, Head of the Prevention and Protection (Form A, B, C).

With an increasingly competitive environment, the creative professional and creative industries have to keep up with the new frontiers of innovation. This is particularly true in the field of Architecture, a discipline which is intimately linked to the human being, there is a need to understand that building spaces for humans and society are linked to a clear understanding of how humans behave, how people develop habits and how these attitudes vary form country to country. This is the way Architecture should respond depending on cultural issues. The program will be a machine to decode and understand the creative advantages of Brand Italy, and the power of ‘Made in Italy’. This course will create entrepreneurs who can learn from the Italian example, and use this to see and develop opportunity around the world. This knowledge will become a foundation for global design growth and a dynamic generator of ideas and explorations to promote new ways of thinking and acting in the creative economy. The international course is held in English and teaches students the importance of combining traditional practices and theories with concepts and methodologies required to meet the needs of the modern architectural design industry. This requires outstanding craftsmanship, excellent design & architecture skills, unique thinking experience conveyed throughout all interactions with different ways of living, and the building of a strong meaning through branding. This Masters course is intended to form such a kind of professionals. The present conditions of architectural and building plan, the current phase of internalization of knowledge, the new productive procedures, which more and more expression of globalized HIGH TECH dimension, require more and more to be hybridized with the cultural and handcrafts specificity of each country, integrating in SLOW dimension. Such a need presses to work more and more on the integration of the different scales of design and knowledge. But it is also important to work on the fundamental aspects of the plan in a new perspective capable of facing technical and formal innovation, new ways of ‘mass-reproduction’, flexibility to different contests, utilization of new materials, and experimentation of new productive modes. In detail the Masters course is aimed at: -identifying the demand starting from the actual cases emerging in the interaction among the cultures of the different countries involved in the Masters course itself. -conceiving and planning new industrialized components (building design) starting from the Made in Italy experience, hybridized with the new global technologies (HIGHT) and the local cultures of the different countries (SLOW). - starting principles of brand management, applying them also to that distribution chain of architecture and building which shares the way of the industrialization of the project, those principles that constituted the success abroad of the Made in Italy campaign in the field of Design, Fashion, and Food. Italy has all the assets, from a strong architecture and design heritage, iconic brands, innovative and memorable objects and images, a large and diverse community of creative, and one of the strongest design auras in the world. The biggest opportunity is in leadership, and an Italian-inspired program, in the heart of one of the world’s most creative cities, constitutes the ideal pieces to kick start a top school. List of Modules Each Module can be also bought directly from the website (section CORSI DI AGGIORNAMENTO (CFP)) by online students who aren’t enrolled to the Specializing Master. The program is organized in main modules that include lectures, workshops, internships and final thesis. Lectures provide students with the appropriate tools and experiences for the development of their professional career. Core arguments are: Design Culture, Architectural Design Process, Data driven Tools, Business Strategy and themes related to the development a working style – Research & Design Methods, Developing the System/Product, Branding it and a creating a Business Strategy. Workshops are project assignments that give students a working knowledge of different core subjects. Workshops start with the presentation of the theme defined by the faculty in collaboration with external industrial partners. Students will be supported by lectures on the specific project theme, involving practicing professionals, researchers and representatives of the companies invited to participate. Each workshop culminates in an four month internship with a final thesis presentation. Design and inspiration Understand the cultural DNA of Italy, and decode how it works and thinks. We will study how “Brand Italy’ drives innovation, and has created some of the world’s most influential and meaningful architecture and design, working processes, thought leadership, and business. Bigger than just history, this course explores the details of Italian creative culture, how it drives national identity and has become a desirable international product. This module will inspire and build belief in Italian creativity. Architecture & process This module unlocks the creative process, using it to identify and drive innovation. Guided by a theme High and Slow Tech. we will explore global production processes and systems. We will be working directly with invited businesses to research new ways of helping them succeed with new products, processes, improved systems and more. Data driven architecture Building on the previous modules we will examine how digital trends are pushing architecture forward. We will be connecting to Latin America, an emerging creative and digital community, for workshops to practice research methods, making, and innovation based on a deep understanding of human and cultural behaviors, and become expert in user-centered strategies for creative industries. Ethnographic research. The aim is to understand/apply qualitative methods to gain deeper understanding of people and their social behaviors. Understanding context. The intent is to develop a comprehension of different cultures by studying on their locational advantages, including industry, economy, manufacturing, infrastructure, as well as local and macro trends. Tools for innovation. Through the exploration of different digital tools, students learn how to develop ideas and proposals based in culture and context. Restoring the productive city After years of decadence, manufacturing is now experiencing decline. Many cities still possess significant innovation and manufacturing capability and capacity, and with responsible reimagining, they can remain a driving force for the economy. This module will explore this contemporary situation, and how to develop ideas and systems to help guide cities into positive, innovation-intense, collaborative, entrepreneurial, and pro-human futures. Business + Architecture + Brand Taking great ideas to a global creative economy. This module will liaison with Canadian brands, manufacturers, and agencies for collaborations, seeking opportunities and exchange, discovering and developing a range of creative business and opportunity. Together we will workshop and explore how to innovate in the global creative market, and decode and understand all advantages in Italian creativity. [-]
