SDA Bocconi School of Management  celebrates 40 years of  MBA success.
In 2014 SDA Bocconi  proudly celebrated the 40th anniversary of its Full-Time MBA, the School’s international flagship program that has been shaping capable and ambidextrous leaders since 1974.

For People who just won’t stop.
The SDA Bocconi Full-Time MBA (Master of Business Administration) is an intense lifetime experience that maximizes learning opportunities in a limited scope of   time. It is a one-year program with a pratical and innovative curriculum, catering to the realities of the marketplace by encouraging students to go beyond conventional business models through creative thinking and responsible problem-solving.

Why choose the SDA Bocconi MBA?

1. Best worldwide ROI
The SDA Bocconi MBA places 1st in the world as the best value for money, the investment in MBA education which pays itself back most quickly.
This is according to the latest Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking of return on investment (ROI, the average time graduates need to earn back tuition fees) for the best MBA programs around the world.
Furthermore, the SDA Bocconi MBA 1-year format will maximize your investment by decreasing your time away from the workforce while requiring you to manage a busy schedule in an intense program structure.

2. Management excellence
SDA Bocconi School of Management is part of Università Bocconi: the only International University specialized in teaching business and economics, Università Bocconi is one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious business
education institutions.

3. Practical and applied knowledge
The curriculum is designed to give you the theoretical knowledge for managerial excellence, while a practical perspective within the program enables you to test knowledge gained and skills learned in the classroom.
We prepare future leaders to be ambidextrous, capable of blending an in-depth understanding of today’s situation with a coherent vision for tomorrow.

4. Relational Cocoon
With just about 100 MBA students, the program demands a heavy investment in relationships and a commitment to cooperation and team-oriented work. This environment results in bonds built with classmates, faculty and alumni that will last a lifetime.

5. International class
The spectrum of nationality, age, gender, professional experience and academic background of our MBA class brings energy and fruitful exchange that few MBA programs can offer. 83% of SDA Bocconi MBA students come from over 30 different countries, a real advantage for modern MBAs, who will be working in big multinationals and must learn to deal with a variety of cultures.

6. Strategic location
An International MBA in Milano means the best mix of style, innovation, leisure, people and places.  Milano will be your campus – a city at the center of the European industrialized belt and of Italian business and finance. The hub of fashion, creativity and design, with a great potential for contacts and careers.

7. Cultural development
Growing professionally requires also a cultural growth. Widen your interests and catch the opportunity to immerse into Italy’s unparalleled wealth of cultural heritage.
You will open your horizons and absorb the educational power of arts.


The SDA Bocconi MBA is an ambitious undertaking. While it requires drive and motivation, it offers you a unique opportunity to improve, personally and professionally. From day one and throughout the Program, you will be plunged into a very intensive period of full-time work that progresses in set stages.
It is demanding, sometimes stressful, but it is also sustainable, allowing to set a proper balance between career aspirations and personal life.

The SDA Bocconi MBA: an integrated and innovative curriculum.

• is based on real world management knowledge;
• draws directly on our faculty's current research work;
• blends together the analytical and social dimensions of managerial issues and instills ethical values;
• takes place in a unique learning environment: academic as well as practice-based; diverse, teamwork oriented; open to the outside world and fostering interpersonal communication.

The MBA also involves you outside the classroom and after hours: extra-curricular activities actually belong to the mainstream program and offer an unrepeatable opportunity to make life-long friends and to network.

Company Connections

Companies form an integral part of the Executive MBA – International Edition, as sponsors, partners and even educators. Companies that participate in learning activities at SDA Bocconi share the School's view of a continuum of learning, which starts in the classroom but is firmly based in the real world. For this reason, companies are constantly present throughout the Program.

The number of companies in the SDA Bocconi network is large and diverse and new companies are welcomed into the network by supporting their employees for an MBA course. The benefits to the company become immediately apparent, as Executive MBA – International Edition participants bring in new stimuli and a drive for growth. In turn, through close contact with company managers, the School receives the necessary inputs to continuously update its educational offerings and fine tune the Program to remain relevant to the needs of real companies.

During the Program participants have several chances to become exposed to leading companies, thanks to formal classroom lectures and informal visits by top managers.


You must tackle real, complex problems, blending together the knowledge and skills from different functional areas.
You put into practice the theory you have acquired, broadening your horizons and enriching your management skills.

The Project lasts from a minimum of eight weeks to a maximum of twelve weeks, during a period from the beginning of June to the end of August. To fulfill your project requirement, you must complete one of the following four options:

  • Individual Project: To support students interested in securing an internship, the Career Development Service brings onto the campus a select group of companies that offer the opportunity to run an individual projects with them. If, after completing the application procedure and one or more rounds of interviews, you succeed in receiving an offer that you accept, you will fulfil your project requirement by working at the company for at least 8 weeks from June to the end of August. Participants may also search for an internship on their own, should this better fit their personal and career aspirations. If so, however, you should secure an approval by the MBA Director upon presentation of a detailed internship proposal.
  • Group Project: Through the Career Development Service, selected companies offer students the chance to develop a fullscale, real consultancy project. Students work in groups of three to six, as a consultancy team, with the assistance of a school tutor, interacting with company staff. Your team has eight weeks to complete the assigned project and provide the company with the innovative and practical solutions they desire. The group project is highly educational, both as a technical learning experience and as an experience working with a team. Participation in individual or group project will depend on a selection process organized by each recruiting company.
  • Entrepreneurial Project: Should you be interested in starting your own company or in undertaking a specific business project inside a company, you may choose the “enterpreneurial project”. Under the supervision of a professor in entrepreneurship, you have the opportunity to develop a business plan, organize a start-up or take part in a company business development project.
  • Research Project: Should you be interested in further investigating a relevant managerial topic of your interest, you may submit a research proposal to the MBA Director. If accepted, you will fulfil your project requirement by writing an original research paper under the supervision of a faculty member.
