The aims and objectives of The Future Makers project are clearly described: to select 100 most talented students from top universities in Italy and give them an opportunity to enhance their learning experience and improve their skills within a specific training context. On May 14-17, in Milan, Alessandra Mariani, economics student at Sant’Anna School in her fifth year, participated in the The Future Makers program organized by The Boston Consulting Group.

This 4-day program is designed to prepare tomorrow’s leaders by giving them challenging tasks that prepare them for research, business, and industry leadership roles.  “The Future Makers initiative – said Alessandra Mariani – is a great opportunity to expand our vision of all we can achieve. Senior professionals and students gather to network and share ideas to be the next generation of developers, researchers and innovators”.

The Boston Consulting Group selected Alessandra Mariani from a pool of thousands applicants. Mariani and the future makers had the opportunity to meet with business and industry leaders: Riccardo Zacconi, founder of Candy Crush, Claudio Descalzi and Cristina Scocchia, CEOs of ENI and KIKO, Alberto Mantovani, scientific director of Istituto Clinico Humanitas

“Organizations and companies already recruited more than 90% of participants in previous initiatives who completed their qualification. The main qualification being recruited is an honors degree for higher education graduates” - said The Future Makers representatives.

“Promoting this innovative network where highly motivated students can interact with managers and experienced makers is crucial in connecting people – Alessandra added – This network means opportunity for those who take the steps to compete in a global business world. As committed Makers, the Future Makers recruiters provided us with the skills needed to drive our society forward. They have big ambitions about how our talent and new ideas can help create a bright future for our world”.

“I am working on my thesis – Alessandra concluded – comparing process management and innovation in Italian and German manufacturing industries. Then I would like to join a company in a challenging position that allows me to develop my skills. A company that encourages innovation and creative thinking”.
