I spent several months evaluating top ranked Global Executive MBA programs. I was looking for a broad and international program to get the chance to connect with a wide and diverse range of senior professionals, top business schools across the globe and outstanding teaching.
I found that SDA Bocconi had the most compelling offering: a 20 months intense program going from Innovation to Financial Markets modules, 4 to 6 weeks abroad in top notch business schools, from US to China, as well as a selection process carefully balanced and able to attract as many cultures and backgrounds as possible. The whole study plan was extremely clear from the beginning, giving me the opportunity to match study and work activities.
The actual experience is even more outstanding: my GEMBA classroom is made of 12 different nationalities out of 25 people. Everyone has extensive international experience. The program is intense: it requires working in teams during and in between modules. Managing virtual teams becomes a core competence, as participants are often on the go. Nonetheless, commitment is at the highest level, driving motivation and passion. Contents are immediately applicable in the daily job to manage teams, evaluate investments and transform businesses, regardless of the industry.
Alongside that, you get to use all the Bocconi databases and access the alumni network, which is an invaluable network of professionals located all around the world. I could not be more satisfied with my decision to join SDA Bocconi!
