A real transition towards new roles.

The Executive MBA Weekend prepares to operate successfully within ever changing and increasingly complex business scenarios. The program provides participants with the right skills to manage the opportunities and challenges that come with such changes, as well as with growth and innovation.

From the very beginning, participants visibly improve their performance in the workplace. This could be by bringing in new ideas, best practices, approaches and frameworks, or by displaying a more confident approach to decision-making, communication and strategic thinking.

The number of companies in the SDA Bocconi network is large and diverse and new companies are welcomed into the network by supporting their employees for the  Executive MBA Weekend program. The benefits to the company become immediately apparent, as  participants bring in new stimuli and a drive for growth. In turn, through close contact with company managers, the School receives the necessary inputs to continuously update its educational offerings and fine-tune the Program to remain relevant to the needs of real companies.

Finally, sponsoring organizations have the opportunity to partner with the School on a number of activities that are part of the EMBAWE curriculum.

A strong network

Sharing knowledge and experiences with other professionals from different areas of business allows EMBAWE students to develop a strong network of contacts, exposes them to an extraordinary breadth of knowledge and provides a reliable sounding board for their ideas.

Attending the Executive MBA Weekend, and getting the EMBAWE degree means becoming part of the Bocconi Alumni Association that aims to spread the value of a shared experience and culture, strengthening ties among Alumni and maintaining a relationship between Alumni and SDA Bocconi, with the intention of increasing the School's prestige and influence in national and international economic, financial and corporate spheres.
