"MFB in one word: Excellence. Receiving lessons by experienced professors who work in the ﬁeld, and discussing critical issues with the managers of important F&B companies are invaluable opportunities. The program provides the tools to develop as a manager both professionally and personally, thanks to a well structured curriculum, extra courses and activities, and all the high quality facilities the program offers."

"To sell brands you need great people who understand that there is much more than product, who are curious about the story behind the product and aware of the past that the product brings with it. That's the kind of curiosity we find in SDA Bocconi MFB graduates: they have passion for F&B, love for the product, combined with managerial excellence and a certain curiosity which brings to great management ideas.
We have as many as 6 MFB Alumni currently working with AB InBev, all doing very different things (Finance, Marketing, Key Account Manager, Pricing and Customer Service teams, etc): while they all started much closer in terms of activity, we saw they quickly found out their way, identified their talent and grew in different areas. The really cool thing is that they are a group, but they are everywhere..."
