The EMMS is one of those experiences that leaves a mark on both your professional and personal life. There’s no one better than those who participated in it to talk about it.

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 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.

I worked in the Marketing field for a long time but after many years I found myself drained - until I joined the EMMS program. I was greatly immersed in the solid theories of brilliant professors and investigated real business cases in diverse industries. The most distinguishing part of the program was that it combines both marketing and sales management. I was able to understand the strategic integration between both sides. This program gave me deeper professional knowledge and a broader career jump. Finally, yet importantly, I got to know many talented peers; intensive discussions of all different aspects really stimulated a lot of sparks in my job. Joining this program was the best choice I ever made and it gave me many opportunities to connect Asia with Europe.

I chose EMMS because of its excellent reputation as a leading and challenging program for people who wish to improve their management skills in an international environment. Most importantly, it offered me the opportunity to continue my career and embark on my higher education at the same time. EMMS gave me a good foundation for the transition from a traditional B2B sales background to 360 digital business world, and it contributed significantly to my professional advancement by making me feel more confident and competent in raising my professional profile.

EMMS is a unique experience, which cannot be expected prior to the beginning of the program. The combination of great professors, amazing people from all over the world from a variety of industries and different cultures results in an out of the box environment. This helps to open your mind and make completely different decisions, which through time you understand are right. It is a Marketing and Sales program to help understand connections between these two fields but also to understand how they are two pieces of the puzzle of the whole business and how to use it to suit you.

For me, EMMS was much more than a course. It is a perfect combination of world-class education with talented professors, amazing structures at the campuses, and vibrant cities.
SDA Bocconi and Esade set an exceptional program, providing breadth and depth of learning for marketing and sales professionals in the digital economy. A harmonized balance of theory and practice, led by brilliant professors, allows students to learn and share our experiences in a collaborative environment.
The alumni life is amazing. All students come together from different cultures and backgrounds, creating an exciting atmosphere, both inside and outside the campuses. Also, the combination of face-to-face interaction and distance learning is perfectly coordinated, allowing students from all countries to study together and match EMMS with their professional activities.
EMMS changed my life both from personal and professional perspectives. Now I feel much more prepared and confident for professional challenges ahead. If you are looking for a world-class education with a vibrant alumni life, I highly recommend you join the program.

It was fantastic experience visiting two heritage European countries in Spain and Italy to understand cultural differences. I am Asian and learning in this peer-to-peer environment was important to having a truly diverse global experience. EMMS has given me not only the academic aspects but also the practical consideration that focused on re-thinking for customer’s insight deeply. It has been a personal journey to find out what is bottom-up in an Iceberg and what I am finally looking for. This is no doubt EMMS is answering this.

EMMS gave me the opportunity to deepen my existing knowledge even further and gain additional management tools and skills. The quality and experience of the professors was fantastic. What I really liked was the well-balanced structure of the program, which allowed me to follow the courses while keeping an intense job. The two top business schools opened my eyes. With three interesting cultural cities and students from all over the world, I can unconditionally recommend this executive master. Here, real friendships are born and a change of life takes place.

Excellent experience at EMMS 11!!!
EMMS proved to be a wonderful source of knowledge, suitable as preparation for a management role in marketing and sales, as well as for professionals already engaged in these functions wanting to sharpen their skills and tools and excel in their roles. Contents cover from establishing best practices to the cutting edge of the industry evolution, for example when discussing digital communication and business, or customer satisfaction and a focus on individual marketing. The quality of the lecturers and their research and consulting work, clearly contribute to make the master up-to-date and connected with professional reality. An effective blend of lectures, workshops, simulations, and case studies, addressed individually or in teams, makes the delivery of the content engaging and stimulating. The balanced blend of business-to-consumer and business-to-business perspectives, with a great breath of industries, adds to make the experience enriching and eye-opening.

I was looking for a program that could give me a broader view about what's going on and what are the trends for Marketing and Sales across several industries as well in-depth knowledge in the areas where I currently operate, without having to step away from the market. I am more than happy to find that EMMS offered me more than what I was looking for: learning from the experience of the faculties of two top-notch Business Schools while experiencing a multi-cultural and multi-industry environment formed by other participants and their experiences. The enhancements in my skill set and in my thinking process were real, and translated into my career even before I finished the program.

EMMS 2018
Business Development Manager - Shell International Exploration & Production

I have reached a point in my career where it is time to take the next step. To truly develop myself, I have to challenge my status quo. I always have had a challenger mentality, with my drive to seek better ways to accomplish my goals. It is not only about climbing up the career ladder. It is about having a vision and the courage to achieve it. I have applied to the EMMS program not to do things the way they have always been done, but to learn and figure out how to do them better. Therefore, now is the right time to benefit both from cutting edge theoretical knowledge and practical cases, as well as professionally benchmark myself and be challenged by other participants in EMMS.
