Name: Elisa Bellagamba  

Current Job (2012): Portfolio Strategy Manager in Ericsson, Stockholm  

Quote: “What you study in Pisa is never idle speculation on obsolete subjects. It is instead a valuable training to become leading actors in future technologies.”  

Study Title: MSc in Computer Engineering from the University of Pisa, 2006 (summa cum laude)  

Full Story: The Computer Engineering Program of the University of Pisa offers an excellent preparation, comparable to that of the topmost world universities. I can say that after interacting with colleagues and professionals from all around the world, working in research, standardization, or telecom business.

Majoring in Pisa is not a piece of cake: each single exam requires a very deep understanding. A good deal of self-organization is also required to keep pace with all the subjects. I did my MSc thesis at Nokia Research Center, Helsinki. I found myself in a multicultural scenario, where the formulas that I developed took life with the contribution of a famous international firm. That experience really changed my life: from that moment on, I just couldn’t stop. Once I got my degree, not only was I presented with a wealth of job offers, but I was ready to interact with my colleagues practically in no time. I immediately got in the heart of the matter of the most important activities, where I was able to give a relevant contribution without lengthy training on the job. Just to make an example: after six months I was already involved in discussion with the leading world experts on IP standards, and after six more months I had my name beside theirs on the RFCs. What you study in Pisa is never idle speculation on obsolete subjects. It is instead a valuable training to become leading actors in future technologies.

I now hold the position of Portfolio Strategy Manager at Ericsson, Stockholm. I design the strategies for future Ericsson products of the IP and Broadband portfolio. My job allows me to range from technological innovation to market analysis, from standardization to problems related to product release and lifecycle. This is a big responsibility. All this was made possible also thanks to the scientific renown of my professors and of my university, which paved the way for the career I dreamed of.
