The Full-Time MBA is off to a roaring start this week as it welcomes participants on campus for the 49th edition of the program. While borrowing from previous editions, the program evolves every year to include new lessons from the current and future landscape of global market challenges.

 

This year’s program, directed by Prof. Stefano Pogutz, has 113 participants, of which 27% are Italian and 73% international, from a total of 38 countries. The students have an average age of 29 and 6 years of experience in the field. The diversity of origin and experience of the class is a determining factor in the participants’ journey at SDA Bocconi, introducing them to different perspectives that will enhance their studies.

 

Opening week is a bootcamp that offers new participants a peek at the year ahead, with speeches from important figures, such as the keynote by Mario Monti, President of Istituto Javotte Bocconi; welcome speeches by Francesco Billari, Rector of Bocconi University, and Stefano Caselli, Dean of SDA Bocconi School of Management; and closing remarks from Paola Cillo, Associate Dean - Claudio Dematté Research Division, and Stefano Pogutz, Full-Time MBA Director.

 

  • “For us, impact goes beyond individual transformation or the advancement of organizations. Impact is positive change that respects and promotes core values,” says Dean Stefano Caselli. “This is our mission, our passion and our responsibility. And it is in this spirit that we welcome you to our School of Management.”

 

After the opening ceremony, the participants partake in training activities to prepare them for the program and networking sessions to introduce them to their fellow classmates, an essential part of their MBA journey. The following week immerses participants in the context of the course with an Introduction to Global Scenarios, during which they will attend lectures on topics such as geopolitical and socio-demographic trends as well as the energy transition and climate change.  

 

The Full-Time MBA at SDA Bocconi is ranked 3rd in Europe and 6th in the world according to the Financial Times. Through the program, participants embrace transformative experiences, connecting with a collaborative community and cultivating purpose-driven leadership geared towards a sustainable future. As pioneers—the first generation of managers deeply aware of our planet’s fragility and the limitations of natural resources—they are uniquely positioned to drive profound changes in our socio-economic systems.

 

  • “Together, we will pave the way for a more sustainable future and drive positive change that leaves a lasting impact,” says Stefano Pogutz, Director of the program. "In a world of abrupt discontinuities and planetary challenges, our MBA aspires to be a game changer for the careers of our students, providing a unique experience, where craftsmanship and flexibility are intrinsic to our approach. We are committed to shaping leaders that go beyond the rigorous learning of business fundamentals, combining entrepreneurial spirit with a mindset for organizational citizenship."

 

This transformative journey is not just about academic milestones; it is an opportunity to connect with a vast network, a community that stays with them beyond graduation. Together, with this shared vision, participants are motivated to become leaders who inspire others and push for change that goes beyond the bottom line, shaping a brighter, sustainable future for companies and the world at large.

 

The program offers a comprehensive business education with a vast array of networking opportunities and a supportive environment. The exposure to global scenarios and the prestige of the school give participants chance to advance themselves in their career, supported by the career development center. It’s a strategic career investment that will launch participants to their next role and nurture their leadership skills.
