1 Year: An MBA Curriculum that Balances Career and Life
The SDA Bocconi Full-Time MBA is an ambitious undertaking: it requires diligence and motivation, but it also gives you a unique opportunity to improve personally and professionally.
You will be plunged into a very intensive period of full-time work that progresses in set stages. Core Courses and Electives sequentially occur between September and May, while a Path to Entrepreneurship takes place from January to May. Then students undertake their Summer Projects (internship or entrepreneurial activity). After the Summer, some of the participants go on exchange in top international business schools. Those who are back to campus undertake stock-taking activities in October and November, capitalizing on what they learned in the previous parts of the program and consolidating soft and other “horizontal” managerial skills.
The Full-Time MBA is a postgraduate and post-experience degree in general management, with a wide scope for specialization, guaranteed by the fact that electives are clustered in 4+1 concentrations among which students have to take choices coherently with their intended post-MBA career path.
The SDA Bocconi MBA's integrated curriculum:
- Is based on real- world management knowledge,
- Draws directly on our faculty's current research work,
as well as on influential leaders' experience, to provide real-world learning opportunities
- Blends the analytical and social dimensions of managerial issues and takes a careful look on at the production of ethical and sustainable value
- Takes place in a unique learning environment: theoretical and practical, diverse, teamwork-oriented, open to the world, and fostering interpersonal communication.
MBA is demanding, sometimes stressful, but it is also sustainable, allowing a proper balance between career aspirations and personal life, as well as fostering awareness of the importance of what's beyond the boundary of firms. Lunch & Learn (L&L) Talks, Leadership Series Seminars and extra-curricular activities offer ample opportunities for life-long networking and friendship.
