Our MBA is a well-established program, with course syllabi and schedules prepared well in advance. Yet the structure of the program is flexible enough to accommodate timely though informal discussions about the “event of the day”, something that occurs unexpectedly and has powerful managerial consequences.
Lunch & Learn (L&L) Talks provide such informal occasions, which accompany the students through the break from the morning activities to the afternoon ones. On these occasions, external speakers as well as SDA Bocconi and Bocconi faculty members sit together for 45-minute talks on topics of interest. MBA students can discuss current issues in a timely fashion and naturally develop a habit to promptly compare the concepts seen in class with real-life cases, putting them into practice.
This is yet another chance to interact with classmates, with faculty members, and professionals. Keeping in mind that sharing a light meal with a teacher is an important piece of learning.
