Massimo di Tria

Deputy Global Head of ALM and Strategic Asset Allocation, Allianz Investment Management SE

The Executive MBA at ESMT was a moment of truth for my personal life and professional career. During that challenging but rewarding time, I learnt a lot about industry trends and practices as well as the importance of cultural differences in a partly-globalized-partly-fragmented world. Moreover, I was able to strengthen and deepen my international network. Finally and most importantly, I understood how to get closer to my Ikigai, a wonderful Japanese concept meaning “a reason for being alive” and standing in the intersection amongst passion, mission, vocation and profession.
