What they say about us

The MBA at SDA Bocconi was incredible! There was a good balance between lecture & case-based method of teaching that has allowed me to get to know different industries and develop the skill set I need to pursue my career goals. Aside from academics, the structure of the program has helped me improve my leadership & teamwork skills and expand my international network. Furthermore, the rigor of the program and career services had prepared me well for my internship despite having no prior background in the industry; after my internship, the company offered me a place in their international Leadership Development program, which I gladly accepted!

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.
