The ROI of SDA Bocconi’s MBA ranks first worldwide

QS Global MBA Rankings 2021


SDA Bocconi’s Full-Time MBA confirms being an excellent investment. Exactly the best in the world as to Return on Investment, out of 258 programs examined. Results from QS Global MBA Rankings 2021 underpin our MBA ranking, scoring 81.6% and placing us in the top 9% of programs in the overall world ranking. But when it comes to Return on Investment, one of the five indexes contributing to the overall ranking, our program is first worldwide.


More specifically, we have been on the winner’s spot for the third year in a row as to sub-index “Payback Month” - which refers to the time needed by a graduate to pay his/her investment back - and for the first time as to “10-Year ROI” as well, the program’s value for participants ten years after investment based on factors such as tuition fees, opportunity costs, salary growth, and expected career progression.


Another evaluation criterion rewarding SDA Bocconi’s FT-MBA is Thought Leadership, including “Academic Reputation”, “Research Impact” and “PhD Faculty” (98.5% of our faculty members are PhDs). In one word, the Faculty’s standing. Here, our program averages 87.6 out of 100 (4 points higher than last year) and is 9th in Europe. And we score 78.6% (6 points higher compared to the previous year) in Employability, the most important index in the overall ranking.


“It’s an achievement”, highlights our MBA Director Francesco Daveri, “that gives credit to the quality and the ongoing improvements across all aspects of the program both in absolute terms and relative to the past. Data say that the investment made by our students in their professional development within our School of Management is worth it. Although it often requires initial sacrifices, it leaves no doubt over the long-term impact in their careers”.
