Extra-Curricular Activities

An All-Round Experience

Promoting interaction and the exchange of ideas not only within the Bocconi community, but also with the business community. This is the goal of all our club endeavours, and in general of all the extra-curricular initiatives carried out through activities focused on management and education, but also through annual sports competitions among participants from the MBA and Master programs.

 

Student and alumni clubs are cross-Master, and give you the opportunity to work and network with students from the other SDA Bocconi Master programs. They are managed by students in collaboration with the school’s staff and faculty.

Club Activities

As practical laboratories for new ideas and networking opportunities, clubs also represent a way of putting managerial skills to the test. Club events cover a wide range of initiatives: from charity to sports and business competitions. The clubs are also an important crossroads where students work with alumni, teachers, and the business world around areas of common interest.
