Why would you recommend the SDA Bocconi MAFED?
MAFED equips you with the edge you need to become an international and well-networked fashion/design management professional. You have the opportunity to build up relevant management knowledge tailored to the respective industries, whilst gaining valuable "real-world" experience in projects with leading companies of the fashion/design industry. This combination of academic excellence, practical application of learnings and networking opportunities is unique from my perspective and sets the stage for the next step in your career.
What has impressed you most about the SDA Bocconi MAFED?
The strength of MAFED relies upon a diverse student body from different professional backgrounds, countries and all ways of thinking. Even if I had studied and worked abroad before, I had never experienced working with such an international crowd of people. It was demanding, but also very intriguing to overcome cultural differences, learn about different ways of working and to work on great projects together. This way I could not only build a strong professional network for the future, but also real friendships with people from all over the world.
Describe your SDA Bocconi experience and the importance of taking an International Master in Milano, at SDA Bocconi.
Milan is one of the fashion and design capitals in the world. Fashion brands such as Prada, Gucci and Versace have their headquarters in the city as well as the leading luxury e-commerce Yoox Net-a-Porter. The proximity to the industry was a great benefit for my learning experience as we had the opportunity to discuss with guest speakers, participate in company visits and worked on field projects with major Italian fashion brands.
