Rolex MBA’s Conference & Regatta 2017: ready to set sail!


The regatta between the best international Business Schools will be taking place from 28th of September to 1st October in Santa Margherita Ligure.
There will be over 390 participants in the 2017 edition of the Rolex MBA’s Conference & Regatta, which is held on the waterfront of Santa Marghrita Ligure from 28th of September to 1st October, organised by SDA Bocconi and Yacht Club Italiano in partnership with Rolex.

The sailors, coming from 20 of the most prestigious Business Schools, are students who are currently studying for an MBA or a postgraduate Masters, and alumni. They are all inspired by the opportunity to get out of their classrooms and away from their desks. Learning to work as a team and to be competitive whilst respecting the rules are the metaphorical challenges that underpin the sporting one. These are further allied with the opportunity for an exchange of cultures between participants.

  2. Chicago Booth School of Business (Stati Uniti)
