You are also expected to possess and exercise a keen ability to evaluate and judge yourself, others and situations.

Learning Goals

By the end of the Program, participants are expected to have mastered:

  1. Theoretical financial knowledge: understanding of key finance concepts and their interrelation.
  2. Practical financial knowledge and technical skills: application of key concepts learned in class to real life cases.
  3. Critical thinking, analytical problem solving and ethical behavior: development of decision making abilities by balancing data with good judgment and ethical reasoning.

Facilities and other learning tools

The MCF is housed in the Masters Division building, which hosts twelve classrooms equipped with multimedia stations, more than eighty areas for group work and a dedicated wireless system. We recommend students bring their own laptops to the program.

The Università Bocconi Library offers access to over 500,000 volumes and more than 7,000 periodicals, a collection that makes our Library one of the world's richest sources of information on economics, finance and management

You will be assigned a personal e-mail account in the Bocconi domain and several databases containing information on economics, finance and business management are also available.

Evaluation process

The evaluation system is based on written tests, role-playing, projects and classroom work. In order to successfully complete the Master in Corporate Finance, participants should meet all School requirements. Exceptional students are awarded the Cum Laude Honors.
