The relationships with local community, businesses and stakeholders play a strategic role for the Department of Business Administration (DBA). These activities are part of the “Third Mission”, which joins the more traditional research and teaching missions.
The “Third mission” of the DBA aims to specifically enhance the skills, professionalism, ideas and research results gained in the business management field in order to provide the local community with useful services of dissemination of knowledge and improvement of socio-economic development.
Over the years, the DBA has built valuable and intense relationships with companies and institutions by activating various collaborations that are characterized by both the attention to local dynamics and the sharing and transfer of research results with stakeholders. More specifically, the DBA has demonstrated its ability to grow and consolidate over time collaborative initiatives with companies of undoubted strategic importance for the University in various fields such as agri-food, logistics, corporate governance, public management and tourism.
Taking into account its specificities and multidisciplinary research areas, the “Third mission” of the DBA is mainly directed towards:
1. research and development with stakeholders (e.g., applied research commissioned by companies and institutions),
2. initiatives of public engagement, i.e. non-profit scientific dissemination activities with educational and socio-cultural development value,
3. design of innovative continuous training and long-life learning activities in the business management field.
