My journey at the MCF marked a significant shift in my career trajectory. SDA Bocconi played a pivotal role in this transition, especially since I came from a different industry background. During my time at SDA Bocconi, I experienced continuous personal and professional growth. The program is intensive blending lectures, company presentations, guest speakers, and collaborative group projects in a fast-paced setting. This dynamic environment honed skills that extend beyond advanced academics, including effective time management, delegation, and fostering trust.

For me, one of the most enriching aspects was the diverse student body. This enriched daily interactions, providing valuable insights and perspectives. I built lifelong friendships and a unique professional network. Milan is a vibrant city that positively adds to the studying experience. There are plenty of activities for all interests, good food and nice weather that add up to the MCF experience.

The MCF taught me as much about Finance as it did about myself. You get the chance to work on many different topics, and almost without realizing it, the links between each one slowly starts to forge until the whole picture gets perfectly clear. What used to be multiple separate areas of Finance and of the corporate world are now elements of a very structured web that you truly understand. And just like that, you start to see yourself working in one area because it resonates with the who you are and what you like to do. I believe it’s important to be open-minded when starting the Master, and not be too fixated on where you think you want to go. Letting your interests wander and your curiosity grow is the best way to enjoy the program and really thrive. The MCF is truly a chance to meet people from all horizons and professionals with fascinating backgrounds. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to be part of the 2022 class. and I cannot wait to see who we all end up becoming.
