"The SDA Bocconi Full-Time MBA is for people who just won't stop. In the same vein, while duly respecting all the safety rules put in place by the authorities, we have not stopped our program during the Covid-19 emergency. Moving online classes and seminars as well as adapting teaching and exam methodologies. Always preserving the aim for excellence, our sense of cozy community and doing everything to defend the value of our participants' investment. "

MBA Director

What they say about us

My career goals flow from two fundamental beliefs, first, the marriage of business and welfare traditionally has few takers. However, if history is any guide, both are equally important for development of human race. And secondly, the world is changing at a blinding pace and at every turn and twist of the change, Darwin's principle of survival of the fittest, has been confirmed. Those that survive are those that adapt. Of all thing I have learnt during this MBA, the most useful skills I have inherited are collaboration, compassion, and agility to tackle the blinding pace of the disruptive changes of today. I'm not sure what is out there for us in near future but I'm very sure that in long-term, we all are set to make an impact in society and lead the change.

MBA 2020
Implementing COVID 19 Crisis Management strategies together. Despite the original decree being released over the weekend mandating schools and universities be closed Bocconi was up and running by Monday morning with online live classes at 8:30 am sharp. We are learning to be resilient business leaders in more ways we could have ever imagined and continue to be flexible leveraging technology as the world navigates this tricky time. 
 
One way we are all working to stay connected is through a new term we've coined "aperitivideo" where you grab a glass of wine from wherever you are in the world and join your fellow MBA classmates on video chat. It will never make up for not being in our beloved city of Milan together but it keeps us sane and connected from wherever we are in the world!
