SDA Bocconi School of Management - About Covid-19

SDA BOCCONI NEVER STOPS.
SAFELY.

YOUR SAFETY MATTERS

Since the beginning of the epidemiological emergency from COVID-19, safety and flexibility have been our guiding principles to ensure participants continuity of education including alternative ways of program delivery.
New national and local restrictions require that we migrate back from hybrid teaching to online platforms only. Consequently, starting from Friday, 6 November 2020 through Thursday, 3 December 2020, SDA Bocconi’s Master’s and Executive Open Programs will continue their teaching activities exclusively online, in compliance with rules and for the protection of the fundamental right to health of all citizens.

Our ongoing and reliable commitment to protect the health and safety of our whole community has been expanded with new activities and initiatives: first of all, Bocconi University has obtained the Biosafety Trust Certification, the first certification scheme created to provide a set of best practices to help minimize the risk of spreading epidemics in public and private gathering places.

 

Furthermore, we have set up an on-campus medical center - a first-level internal medicine service for Bocconi Community members, which, starting from 23 November, integrates the already active emergency services.

Safety, Highest Education standards and Customized Service

1. SAFETY

From day 1 of the Covid emergency our activities never stopped. We immediately migrated all on-campus teaching and learning activities from in-person to distance learning platforms and methodologies to ensure a continuity of education. While executing this important learning journey through the use of digital technologies, we learned many lessons to plan future teaching and organizational activities.  The current trend of the pandemic imposes greater attention and precautions, and the new indications provided by Health and Government Authorities require that we migrate back from hybrid teaching to online platforms only and that all SDA Bocconi’s Master’s and Executive Open Programs continue their teaching activities exclusively online.

Bocconi University has obtained the Biosafety Trust Certification, the first certification scheme created to provide a set of best practices to help minimize the risk of spreading epidemics in public and private gathering places, based on ISO standards’ systemic approach to management systems. Bocconi University has successfully completed the process that verifies compliance with the system of requirements put in place by the certifying body RINA, a multinational certification company with 200 offices in 70 countries ( www.rina.org/en).

Furthermore, starting from 23 November, we have set up an on-campus medical center - a first-level internal medicine service for Bocconi Community members, that integrates the already active emergency services: however, please note that the medical center is NOT an emergency service. In the event of an emergency, you should always call 112, the European emergency number, or the Bocconi emergency number, +39 02 5836.2121, which will activate the ambulance service if necessary.

2. HIGHEST EDUCATION STANDARDS

Thanks to our longtime experience and our very well-trained teaching staff, during lockdown the School has always worked to ensure continuity of education through different distance-learning methods. Now more than ever, SDA Bocconi keeps offering an ideal learning environment for those who attend online lessons, thanks to camera systems that guarantee maximum visibility of teachers, board and audience in the classroom.
When future decisions by national and local authorities, together with Covid-19 pandemic trends, give us a clearer picture of the months to come, we will assess the possibility of restoring the hybrid teaching format, including safe and compliant in-person activities. Meanwhile, our efforts will remain focused on ensuring that our teaching, learning and professional activities, while temporarily limited in terms of interpersonal relationships and exchanges, are as rich and effective as ever. 

3. CUSTOMIZED SERVICE

Our School is known for being especially attentive to people and offering customized services to its entire community. Now more than ever, we believe that participants and students should be at the center of all our activities. We aim at guaranteeing everybody physical safety and peace of mind, conditions that are necessary to successfully continue - or begin - the learning process.
