Tuition Fees

At SDA Bocconi, we have a mandatory attendance policy that is in place for the entire program. The intensive nature of our twelve-month program makes it hard to engage in professional activities during the MIHMEP that provide financial support. Specific situations must be addressed with the Director before the enrolment.

The total fee for the 2016-2017 program is € 24,000 to be paid in three instalments:
First Installment € 8,000 on acceptance of admission to the Master Program
Second Installment € 8,000 by November 2016
Third Installment € 8,000 by February 2017

Tuition fees include:

  • All teaching materials
  • Access to the School’s facilities

Fees do not include accommodation or living expenses. 

Methods of payment for the tuition fee:

  • Bank check made payable to "Università Bocconi"
  • Bank transfer to Banca Popolare di Sondrio, Ag. 11, Via Bocconi 8, Milano IBAN: IT55 E056 9601 6100 0000 2000 X88 BIC/SWIFT POSOIT22
  • Credit Card.

Personal Expenses 

Of course, personal expenses will vary significantly depending on each individual’s lifestyle. In general, the cost of living in Milano is comparable to that of other major European cities. We aim to provide you with an accurate expectation of monthly expenses based on information provided by students in recent years:

Housing € 400 - 600
Meals € 450
Transports € 100
Misc. Expenses € 350
Total € 1,300 - 1,500
