The 2,500 professors represent the highest concentration of scientific expertise in the region and the University's research is ranked among the best in Italy and Europe.

The University of Milan has broadened its area of activity over the years to meet the needs of a rapidly developing society. As a consequence the number of Faculties has been increased including Agriculture, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Political Sciences and Exercise Sciences.

The University's research and teaching activities have developed over the years and have received important international recognitions. The University is the only Italian member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU), a prestigious group of twenty-two research-intensive European Universities. It has also been awarded the following ranking positions: -1st in Italy and 7th in Europe (The Leiden Ranking - Universiteit Leiden) -1st in Italy, between 35th and 56th in Europe, between 101st and 150th in the world (Academic Ranking of World Universities - Shangai Jiao Tong University) -1st in Italy, 16th in Europe and 74th in the world (Council of Taiwan).

Located in one of the most industrialized geographical areas in Europe, the University of Milan operates in a strongly business-oriented environment covering both domestic and foreign markets and where the progress of knowledge goes hand-in-hand with the transfer of results to the industry world. This constitutes a priority for a university playing, with its broad range of expertise, a decisive role in increasing the competitiveness of enterprises through the processes of innovation which generate wide-ranging economic and social benefits at international level.

Throughout Milan, the University is commonly nicknamed and referred to as Statale (eng. State) to avoid confusion with other private universities in the city, such as the Business University Luigi Bocconi, the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore) and the Free University of Languages and Communication (IULM).
