Students and Alumni are the best testimonials of how EMMS helps leverage participants' attitudes and knowledge. Thanks to their experience and professional positions, they complement the guidance and information given by the Director and the Recruiting Team, giving you a clearer idea of how EMMS can transform your career.

"After a few years in digital marketing, I decided I needed a deep dive into marketing fundamentals. I did some searching and found that EMMS met many of my expectations. Walking into that classroom in SDA Bocconi on our first day, I was met by a pool of diverse and now-familiar faces. We thought we were learning how to be better marketers and salespeople; but, throughout the pandemic, we learned how to be better humans.
EMMS is a great taught program but what sets it apart are the people you meet. I would never have had the opportunity to connect with so many brilliant minds – professors, peers, and guest speakers – had I not pursued EMMS. What was supposed to be a 13-month journey became 16 months, which gave us more time to learn from each other and grow as a community. The program directors did an excellent job managing the changing circumstances and I believe that is one of the best parts of the experience – learning resilience by witnessing it and living through it. "

"2020, what a year! Nobody can deny that it was a challenging one. Actually an unprecedented one. But for me, this year was a deeply transformational one. Not only for my working habits and personal life, but it also marked a new learning journey for me. A powerful experience which led me to valuable educational insights and instilled me with many years of professional experience. But most importantly this journey led me to adopt a new mindset. Taught me how to remain resilient, stay relevant and adopt a value-creation attitude. If one this pandemic has taught us one thing, it’s that at the end of the day it is not the aptitude that matters most, but rather the attitude of people. Well SDA Bocconi and Esade, helped me strengthen both. This is what it means to be in the thrusted hands of outstanding business schools. I thank them deeply for that. Once an EMMS, always an EMMS."
