GEMBA: 20 months, a trip towards success


Regional focus / Global thinking

The GEMBA takes place at SDA Bocconi, in the center of Milano, a city that combines a dynamic global reality while reflecting the unique aspects of the European marketplace. Gaining this kind of understanding and experience will be essential when projecting your future career.

In addition, four modules are conducted at international partner schools: UCLA Anderson School of Management (Los Angeles), Fudan University (Shanghai), Copenhagen Business School and Fundação Instituto de Administração (São Paulo). Furthermore, you can apply for an elective offered by partner Schools including UCLA Anderson, Recanati (Tel Aviv), Rotman (Toronto) and WHU - Otto Beishmein School of Management in Vallendar (Germany), in addition to the electives offered at SDA Bocconi.


Fluidity of time and space

The Program's curriculum and the format are designed to move participants along a theme-driven path, beyond conventional assumptions.

Flexibility is maximized through a dynamic format that blends the best aspects of classroom learning in Europe, North America and Asia with distance learning. Participants do not miss out on any professional or learning opportunities no matter where they are.


Influential international networking

Participants in the SDA Bocconi Global EMBA can capitalize on a network of leading individuals and institutions.
 Classmates possess broad experiences, from an array of backgrounds and participants have the opportunity to move through a cross-cultural context.

A diversity of locations is meant to be a channel for interacting with various industries and creating an environment for participants to gain tangible insights into how management theories and practices play out in different business settings.


Return on investment

The expertise Global EMBA students gain is immediately applicable in their companies and organizations.

Participants become smart decision makers, effective problem solvers, and well-prepared leaders able to take on increasing responsibilities.
 Both participants and employers receive a quick return on their investment as new concepts are brought into action.
