High achievement through academic pathways
Program comprehensiveness is a key factor that ambitious individuals often cite as their decision to pursue the SDA Bocconi Global EMBA.
The School has gathered its vast expertise in Executive education to deliver a remarkable program dedicated to experience molding.
Traveling towards success
As a Global EMBA student, you will travel towards success over a period of twenty months, taking eight highly concentrated one-week modules plus two nine-day modules conducted every other month.
One-week modules run from Monday through Saturday while long modules run from Friday to Saturday of the following week.
This is a format that maximizes learning opportunities into a compact amount of time. Four modules are conducted at four partner schools:
- UCLA Anderson School of Management (past GEMBA Classes)
- CEIBS - China Europe International Business School
- Copenhagen Business School
- MISB Bocconi - Mumbai International School of Business (SDA Bocconi offshore campus)
This format enhances thinking through a cross-cultural context and, more importantly, this diversity of locations channels interactions with various industries. We also create an environment for participants to gain tangible insights into how management theories and practices manifest in different business settings.
During the first year, the GEMBA core Program will be a series of focused and relevant courses that provide a strong foundation of fundamental business skills, making up a substantive portion of your academic experience at SDA Bocconi.
During the second year, you are rerouted on a destination towards advanced topics. The value of such courses is fostered by electives, both at SDA Bocconi in Milano and at international partner schools. The trip is not over yet. The Open Ended Module directly relates to the foundation of the SDA Bocconi approach: innovative applicability. This module allows participants to focus their Global EMBA experience in order to be a catalyst of change within their domain of operation.

Fundamentals of Management
The GEMBA curriculum for the first year consists of twelve core courses that provide fundamental knowledge and analytical tools to establish a common foundation in the practices of business.
The GEMBA second year builds on the knowledge acquired during the first year, and offers tools to study and to understand the positioning of an organization into economic, financial and social environments.
Elective Courses, abroad or at SDA Bocconi, enable you to customize your studies according to your own goals. By choosing an elective, participants personalize their study plan.
