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.
My experience is very positive, I recommend it for economics and legal studies. Specifically I attend a five years integrated master in Law and in 4th year I chose a corporate law major, dedicated to future business lawyers.View more
My opinion about Bocconi University is positive and I would recommend it. It requires a lot of commitment and perseverance, but for this reason it pushes you to express the maximum of your abilities, thus managing to overcome the obstacles that maybe you considered difficult to overcome. I believe that the strengths of this university are the international climate that characterizes it, the services it offers to its students and the job opportunities that can be sought after graduating. Aspects that I have appreciated less are sometimes an excessive competitiveness between students and a reduced flexibility of the administrative apparatus.View more
I really like Bocconi. What I appreciated the most was the high level of teaching and the opportunities given in terms of placement and networking connections.
I strongly recommend this university if you want to pursue a great working career.
University that in recent years is climbing the European rankings and not only, for the quality of teaching, research and practicaltioners to hold the role of teachers. A future-oriented university, in which the mix of Italian and foreign students gives life to a stimulating environment, suitable for forming leaders of the future.View more
Beautiful community of students with lots of opportunities for in-campus activities. The university offers 8 residences near the campus, perfect for freshmen at the first year in Milan. Professors are very prepared and always ready to help studentsView more
I like Bocconi because of the rules that run this university. It’s full of different rules that work for everyone, students and professors. Things are pretty much clear and everyone seems to be helpful. Moreover, I like the way they schedule and create the exams, almost every exams fit the knowledge of the students. Furthermore, you could also find friendly classmates to share your university experience. But we also have bad news. Sometimes the strictness of the rules are too much. They show no flexibility, for me that is not good. Then we also have competition between classmates, everyone want to be the greatest. To conclude, Bocconi is the perfect university if you want to increase your knowledge and your attitude to the job market.View more
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
