"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. "

What they say about us

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.

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.
