Return to LIUC: More international engineering with Alessandro Creazza
Return to LIUC: More international engineering with Alessandro Creazza

“In 2000, when I arrived at LIUC, I immediately felt I was at ‘home’. Now, after a degree, a research doctorate and experience in a foreign university, I am happy to be here again and to give my contribution “: Alessandro Creazza, born in 1981, is a new associate professor of the School of Industrial Engineering ,LIUC, and is an expert in logistics and supply chain management. The story of this young academic is an example of “brain drain”: a successful path that led him to work in England and then return to the University that educated him and saw him take his first steps.

“I chose the degree course in Management Engineering at LIUC for it’s mix of the classical disciplines of engineering and some elements of innovation. While I was studying (three years specialising in the field of logistics and a further two years in mechanics), I had three business internships. The master’s thesis gave me the opportunity, thanks to interviews with numerous companies, to understand how research in my field is strongly applied, and close to the industrial world “.

Subsequently, during his PhD course, also at LIUC, Alessandro concentrated mainly on global supply chains. Many opportunities for comparison with other universities around the world, a real immersion in the world of international research, very useful for the creation and consolidation of a network of relationships. In 2008, particularly, he spent a period of study in England at Cranfield University School of Management. An adventure that ended with the discussion of his LIUC thesis in the presence of one of the worldwide logistics gurus, Martin Christopher.

In 2013, after a few years of activity at LIUC, the opportunity for another experience abroad arrived, again in England, and Alessandro did not let it escape. And so he went to the University of Hull. These were intense years of professional growth, that resulted in him attaining the role of manager of the Master’s degree course in logistics.

“Studying at LIUC – he says – gave me the ability to relate effectively with the corporate world and this proved to be a distinctive element in the international context in which I worked, with teachers and students from all over the world. I measured myself with didactics different from the Italian ones, that paid a lot of attention to relational and professional competences “.

Now, with his return to LIUC, there are many ideas to develop: “I will be responsible for delivering engineering courses on logistics and supply chain management, in English, within an enhanced training offer to give an increasingly global preparation to the students, who will share the lessons together with those in international mobility. Furthermore, I am working on introducing more and more innovative ways of teaching; for example, by making the most of internship experiences – for the purpose also of assessing the students – to expose them to experiences that can develop their professional skills and make them ready to face successfully challenges from the world of work, wherever they decide to go ”.
