Paula Monteiro de Freitas - BrazilianMBA 2017
The MBA is built of two different challenges made for our growth: one is the academic and the other is the personal. In the latter, we learn on a full-time basis with a special group of 100 people from completely different parts of the world, walks of life and experiences. All this with the support of a great staff of prepared professors that are always willing to counsel, hear and advise.

I am happy to say that the teaching was as good as I hoped. What I did no't anticipate was the value of learning alongside a fantastic group of people who are just as committed to their personal development, and who have become a vital part of deciding what to do next in my life.

The program perfectly complemented my professional experience and positively changed my career aspirations as expected. Faculty and classmate interactions immensely influenced my professional mindset and development of leadership skills, necessary to pursue a global managerial role.
We had the opportunity to interact and learn firsthand from CEOs and leaders from different industries through the “Leadership Series,” a unique complement to our managerial education.
I thank everyone for an unforgettable experience, a true highlight in my academic and personal development. Now I am certain that I am better prepared for upcoming managerial challenges that will require a broadened professional background and a global mindset.

The LBM Concentration afforded me unique opportunities, both in Italy and abroad, that will remain highlights of my SDA Bocconi MBA.
In Florence and Rome we got an inside look at some world-renowned luxury companies, from haute couture to private yachts.
I never would have had this experience if it weren’t for the school’s vast network within the luxury industry and its ideal location in the fashion epicenter of the world.

Either you want to change your industry, have an international experience or increase your managerial skills, Bocconi is a great fit.

Between daily classes, constant group projects, a multicultural group of classmates, business case competitions and the school-organized trips, you won’t stop! But you will for sure improve as a person and a professional.
