Why MFB? Why SDA Bocconi? Why Italy? First things first... In my opinion, MFB is an interesting program that gave me a holistic view of the food and beverage industry. SDA Bocconi is an impressive business school with amazing professors that share my passion for food and for the industry and that will help to open the doors to a great network. Italy is a country that showed me a lot about passion for food and beverage with all types of companies where I was able to understand the entire spectrum of the industry and get newly inspired. It was a fantastic experience, thank you very much!
