Imagination is as important as ever. Italy owes its reputation of excellence to its tradition of imagination and creativity, and we believe that much of the SDA Bocconi School of Management success in educating executives for the international business world comes from this foundation. As executives interact more and more with markets that have become increasingly global in nature, they need the right kind of knowledge and skills to build competitive products, brands and services.


SDA Bocconi’s Knowledge Centers are centers of excellence that carry out research projects, with the aim of applying their outcomes at management level in a variety of sectors. They promote the development and dissemination of knowledge and the strengthening of management skills. They achieve this by encouraging dialogue and interaction between the SDA Bocconi faculty, sector-specific business communities in Italy and abroad, current students, alumni and the entire Milanese community at large.


Career Service partners with MBA students to support their professional and personal development throughout the program. We spend time with them individually and collectively, always promoting accountability and personal initiative. Students achieve their best career results when they learn to work with us as partners, tapping into their own energy and resources and making the best use of the knowledge and tools we provide.

Great variety of courses. Economics and financial ones are pretty tough thing to deal with.
