Home » MBA Faculty in the Spotlight – Part 3

We recently met with some of our MBA professors who are teaching at IUM and, most of the time, working aside.

Dr. Guido Mantovani

Guido Mantovani (Milan, March 28th, 1965) graduated in Business Administration (major in Corporate Finance) at Bocconi University Milan in 1989-90. He also got his Ph.D. in Business Administration at Bocconi University’s International Consortium.

Distinguished Professor of Finance

Since 2018 he has been a Distinguished Professor of Finance at IUM (Groupe ONMES Education) with a double affiliation in Corporate Finance and Banking at Ca’ Foscari University Venice. His academic experience started in 1990 at Bocconi University as a fellow junior researcher (later lecturer) in Corporate Finance and Corporate Risk Management. In 1998 he was appointed Senior Professor of Corporate Finance at SDA-Bocconi School of Management. In 2001, he joined Ca’ Foscari University as a faculty member. In 2009 he was appointed Deputy-President for Lifelong and Executive Education and founded the Ca’ Foscari Challenge School by becoming its first Dean (2011-2014). His international teaching experience spreads to ENI Corporate University (1992-2013), VSE University of Economics Prague (1997-99), Harvard University – Summer School (2006-11), FAU Universitaet Nurnberg (2012-14), Ecole de Management de Strasbourg (2012-17), where he also acted as President of the H.E.R.M.E.S. Universities Network until 2018.

 Dr. Mantovani is a remarkable corporate finance professor with outstanding knowledge, patience, and a sense of humor. Through his numerous entertaining stories, he has the ability to verbalize complex financial concepts in a way that makes them easily understandable and fun! All MBA students love and respect Dr. Mantovani for his dedication and commitment to making us all learn and succeed.
