Who is a Typical MFB Student?

MFB participants are extremely capable and motivated young talents, who have at least two years of successful work experience and are willing and committed to become leaders and excellent managers.

Class profile


Students and Alumni are the best testimonials of how MFB helps leverage participants' attitudes and knowledge. Thanks to their experience and professional positions, they complement the guidance and information given by the Director and the Recruiting Team.

"My MFB experience was inevitable for me. I worked all my career in the Food and Beverage field and coming to SDA Bocconi and attend the program was an obvious choice for me. Little that I know that I would be submerged by the high standards of the teaching corps along with the exposure and knowledge we were exposed to with respectful companies in the CPG industry.
It’s definitely the best experience I had; on top of leading me to work on a field project with Ferrero and later joined the Barilla Group after my graduation. Thank you for this great opportunity and challenges that pushed me one step further in my career."

Ambassadors are international students that volunteer to act as advisors helping prospects finalize their decision. We encourage you to connect with our student Ambassadors who will be happy to provide useful advice and answer your questions.

"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."
