Politecnico di Torino together with Boston University's Metropolitan College (ranking among the top 100 universities in the world – #81 QS 2017) has set up an educational path of excellence in the field of management. This initiative allows students enrolled in the Master's degree programme in Engineering and Management (Ingegneria Gestionale) at Politecnico di Torino to earn a Master's degree in Administrative Sciences or Project Management from Boston University. Students attend their second year, plus the summer semester, at BU-MET (1 semester courses, + 1 semester internship + summer term for thesis project). Upon their return to Politecnico students are also awarded a Master's degree (Laurea Magistrale) in Ingegneria Gestionale by Polito.
