How to Apply
Fill out and submit the online application through our website bt October 5th, 2021 and upload all required documents to the specific section of your application.
The application is available exclusively online and must be completed in English.

If so, you will be required to have an interview, which may be held at SDA Bocconi in Milano or remotely (via webcam). Candidates are carefully selected on the basis of an extensive review of their skills.
