Bocconi University was founded in 1902 and was the first Italian university to grant a degree in economics. It is a private university that has its main campus in Milan, Italy. Ever since its founding, it has become a leading school in the field of economics and social sciences. It is a major research university with democratic values, and it is financially and politically independent, thus making it open to the world. The school believes in an open philosophy, allowing students to apply, regardless of their cultural and ethical background. Prospective students can expect to be taught in a welcoming, warm and multicultural learning environment, perfect for students to enrich their knowledge. In 1971, Bocconi started the SDA Bocconi School of Management which specializes in MBA, specialized Master Programmes and Open Enrolment/Customized Executives Education. But Bocconi also delivers undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate education, as well as a wide range of double-degree programmes in the fields of economics, management, finance, law, political science and public administration. The programmes are all internationally oriented. The research university also receives funding for its projects from national and international institutions. The university is made up of five schools: the Undergraduate School, Graduate School, Law School, PhD School and SDA Bocconi School of Management. What makes Bocconi special, is its activities for high school students, including mathematics competitions, Model United Nations and other events to help high school students orienting during their secondary education. The school strives to educate students through innovative teaching methods, in order to best prepare its student for their high-level future roles in management positions. Bocconi graduates are well-equipped with the necessary skills to succeed in their future endeavours, may those be professional or personal. Due to this, graduates are highly employable- the alumni community consists of over 100,000 former students who live and work in industries across the globe.
Overall, I had a very good experience at Bocconi.
It gave me a very solid background as I had the opportunity to attend many different classes and learn about different topics with very prepared professors.
They have a lot of partnerships with universities around the world, so you have a lot of choice if you want to spend a semester abroad.
There is a good environment and I also had a lot of fun during my time there.
However, I decided to study abroad for my Master as I perceived that educational path at Bocconi as really theoretical (very few group work, very few case studies, only very big books to study) and people were too much competitive.
If I had to come back to my university choice I would do it again!
I had a wonderful experience in Bocconi during those 3 years, living in a amazing city like Milan and meeting extraordinary people. Bocconi provides you solid skills for your future through an excellent education, studying here it’s not easy but considering all the opportunities that Bocconi gives you it’s certainly worth it.View more
The quality of the courses is good but the choices of subjects are limited and some of them have very little practical usefulness. For example, HR, M&A and commercial law are taught in a really qualitative way and these courses dont add value to your knowledge when you workView more
Jurisprudence at Bocconi has a cheaper, international and dynamic cut than traditional. You gain very useful knowledge today (such as being able to read a budget), but you have a slightly less thorough preparation in traditional subjects. The organization is perfect and the professors are almost all level.View more
The Bocconi is able to offer you a preparation in the field of jurisprudential 360 °, but not only, allows you to have a preparation in the economic field. The level is very high, the difficulty in the study, however, I believe that once finished my studies I will be well integrated into the workplace.View more
The great efficiency and organization, the high quality of teaching, and the possibility to take part in many interesting and useful experiences make Bocconi University stand out. It distinguishes itself from the Italian academic background. Many people say Bocconi is too stressful, but to me, it’s worth it.View more
Excellent university encourages you not to fall behind with the exams because it provides the opportunity to take partial exams and you are followed given the not excessive number of classes. The mole of extensive study but the method is effective because many law firms take you on stage.View more
Very good university with very competent professors and courses held in a professional manner.
Only negative aspect regarding the layout of the exams that are sometimes too compressed.
Another positive aspect is the holding of conferences or in-depth seminars
It’s a good university but too stressful because of the many exams to be prepared in no time.
It is organized very well and hopefully guarantees a certain or at least partly future.
University life is good
Good university but too stressful. Good organization but little time to prepare for the exams.
You can always improve even at high levels.
It guarantees a more or less certain future or at least hopefully
