In the ranking of the best MBAs in the world the School moves up three spots reaching 22nd place worldwide and confirming 9th place in Europe
After the recent positioning in the restricted group of the ‘Elite Business Schools’ in Europe by QS, SDA Bocconi School of Management has received a new acknowledgement for the quality of its MBA program which rises three positions in the ranking of the best Fll-Time MBA programs published today by the Financial Times. The only Italian school in the ranking of the top 100 programs, it placed 22nd worldwide and 9th in Europe.
“SDA Bocconi and its Full-Time MBA are an Italian excellence in the world,” comment Giuseppe Soda, Dean of the SDA Bocconi School of Management. “In a highly competitive market like that of the full-time programs, to continue to improve year after year is an excellent result. Investing in internationalization and consolidating the growth of our School is our contribution to the growth of human capital and management.”
The FT ranking of full-time MBAs is based on around 20 parameters, including student assessments three years after graduation and data provided by individual schools. The SDA Bocconi program stands out, amongst other things, for its graduates’ international mobility (5th worldwide), the value of international experiences (such as exchanges and internships) during the program (10th worldwide) and the post-MBA salary increase (+120%).
The international mobility of graduates is reflected in the fact that 55% find employment in a different country from where they worked previous to the program, locating principally in Italy (42%), Europe (35%) Asia Pacific (8%) and the Middle East (6%). The international experiences offered by the School leverage a network of over 30 partner business schools around the world (including in India, US, China and Brazil) and companies which offer internship opportunities in, amongst other, Europe, US, Asia and South America.
"The European model, with the top business schools concentrated in Spain, France, UK, Switzerland and - thanks to SDA Bocconi - Italy, is increasingly asserting itself,” says Stefano Gatti, director of the Full-Time MBA at SDA Bocconi. “This raises the level of competition in Europe whilst at the same time making the system more attractive: our 103 MBA students this year in fact come from 32 different countries with a presence of non-Italians of 77%."
