Medici academic partners


We are pleased to announce the organization of the 10th edition of the Medici Summer School in Management Studies for doctoral students and young researchers which will be held in Bologna, Italy, June 11 - June 15, 2018.

The school is organized and sponsored by Bologna Business School (University of Bologna), MIT Sloan School of Management (Economic Sociology PhD Program) and HEC Paris' SnO center.


The Summer School is designed to promote doctoral education and research in organization theory and related fields (economic sociology, management studies, strategy) and contribute to the development of enlightened practice in the management of business organizations. The Medici Summer School advocates a special focus on cross-fertilizing research across North American and European traditions. The Summer School is a unique educational program for qualified doctoral students interacting with thought leaders in the management field who have shared their knowledge and wisdom on frontier research topics.

The Medici School combines lectures and research seminars by prominent international scholars with active engagement by participating students. Every day of the one-week program is scheduled to end with the presentation of students’ research related to the topic of the School, with a panel of senior faculty providing feedback.
