Latest rankings

The leading School of Management in Italy and the only Italian School on the top of the charts of all main International Rankings, SDA Bocconi has established itself as a European leader in higher education.

SDA Bocconi placed 6th in Europe in the QS Global 200 Business School Report 2012, based on the assessments of Recruiters. The MBA program also allowed the School to reach 4th place amongst the top non-US Business Schools in the Forbes ranking, which is mainly based on return on investment.  In addition, SDA Bocconi started 2011 by placing first in the world in the Bloomberg Businessweek Ranking for Full-Time MBA Return On Investment and ended the year reaching the 7th position in the Financial Times' Best European Business Rankings, gaining ten positions. SDA Bocconi also ranks 15th in Europe and 42nd worldwide and remains the only Italian Business School in the latest Financial Times Global MBA Rankings, which has seen a general downgrade of European Schools in favor of U.S. Schools. SDA Bocconi, however, ranks 4th in Europe for salary increase three years after graduation, in spite of the negative impact of the financial crisis on MBA graduate salaries: new international and growth-oriented initiatives have  been implemented, in line with the School's decision in 2008 to move from a bilingual MBA to an International program entirely taught in English.

Further testimony of the quality of the programs offered by SDA Bocconi is the accreditation by the AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), announced on 5 December 2011 by the Board of Directors of AACSB International. This accreditation, in addition to the previously awarded EQUIS and AMBA, marks the completion of the top three accreditations offered by the most important international institutions, and places the School among just 55 Business Schools worldwide to have received the AACSB accreditation.

From the professional standpoint I reached the ten year mark in my career, consulting teams, implementing EPP systems on large international projects, but I felt the need to forge my path to a more strategic role. Moreover, in the company I'm working for, the number of women having managerial positions is increasing and to be competitive I f...

I would like to testify the precious experience that the SDA Bocconi Global Executive MBA represents for me. It is a hard path, that challenges you each day due to the pressing rhythm of the study activities that overlap with the job duties. Every day we put to test our the ability to organise and plan the agenda, which is one of the first manag...

My MBA is fast-paced: between class, group work and business case reading, you really never stop. But don't worry, you always manage to find a space for social activities in Milano, and club activities as well (skiing, sailing, golfing, wine tasting...). It's challenging and it's enriching: many new subjects all together, the great diversity of ...
