What they say about us

The Full-Time MBA program at SDA Bocconi helped me radically change my industry and opened the way to a new role and experience thanks to the opportunity to join the leadership program at Cargill. No doubt, this investment of time, money, and all the 'extra miles' of an MBA was worth it!

Dmitry Dobrynin - Russian

The MBA is often described as a life changing program. This is certainly true!
I am proud to be part of the Bocconi community consisting of such a strong and powerful network.
SDA Bocconi’s curriculum and classmates from 32 different nationalities made this experience so unique. Additional career trainings and intense case cracking sessions challenged my way of thinking to solve complex problems.
This roller coaster journey led me to the decision of changing my previous career path from investment banking to the technology industry.
SDA Bocconi’s MBA is a good example where success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
