Vittoria Veronesi
MFB Director

MFB has been the best experience of my life and helped me realize that the sky is not the limit but our belief system is. This environment gave me the confidence to dream big and made me understand that it is possible to be a successful entrepreneur in this sector. It was not only about inspiration, we also received a well structured education in order to minimize the chances to fail in today´s difficult business world. Having the opportunity to discuss with highly qualified professionals in the sector and other speakers, both at SDA Bocconi and in the company visits, have been a key factor for developing and implementing ideas. I believe that MFB is the perfect springboard for a career, and a life, in the Food & Beverage sector.

Whether working in a market selling apples or in a restaurant running between dining room and kitchen, it is difficult to see the forest for the trees; the wider world that is the Food & Beverage sector. In contrast, we were taken to the field where the trees grow to meet the family that harvests and presses the olives, to his neighbor who makes each ceramic bottle, to the chef that cooks with the extra vergin olive oil, then they asked us: what next? From the first day of MFB at SDA Bocconi, we were allowed to experience and to develop as future Food and Beverage leaders. We were given countless opportunities to meet, discuss and learn from sector leaders and professionals - professors, guest speakers, alumni and fellow classmates and company visits - the knowledge, tools and network to answer the question, what next? I recommend this programme to those curious, passionate and hungry for more.
