The high level of satisfaction of managers and companies with the courses that SDA Bocconi School of Management organizes is confirmed again this year. The school in fact places in the European top 10 of the 2016 Executive Education Ranking published today by the Financial Times. In the ranking dedicated to customized programs SDA Bocconi reaches 6th place in the World, and 5th in Europe, in a ranking that is about 70% based on the feedback of client companies.
The ranking measures the quality of open and customized programs through various parameters, some provided by participants and companies, others from the schools. The position in the final classification is then calculated by averaging the scores from these two distinct sets of data. In the ranking for open programs the school ranks 39th in the world and 20th in Europe, and in the overall ranking obtains 18th place in the world and 10th in Europe.
“The positive opinion of those who attended the courses we designed tailor-made for them is the real added value of this ranking ," says Bruno Busacca, Dean of SDA Bocconi. "As researchers and professors our goal is to provide managers with the most advanced research and the best teaching methods to meet the specific needs of their businesses. The excellent positions on some key parameters, such as the level of interaction with our clients (4th in the world), the follow-up (3rd in the world ), methods, teaching materials and value for money ( 5th in the world) confirm the achievement of this goal."
Over the last year about 12,000 participants were involved in customized courses, open programs and workshops at SDA Bocconi. "We work with businesses and institutions of all sizes, from SMEs to multinationals, and which operate in all sectors: from banks to public administrations, service companies to pharmaceutical ones," concludes Busacca.
