The program is very well done and organized, The study plan includes a wide variety of courses and this makes all the students develop a critical spirit and a wide knowledge of different fields. This course, in fact, is perfect if you like arts and creative disciplines in general but you want to know more about business and how to apply it in the fields of the creative sector.
The professors are all very qualified and always available to help you and to organize office hours in which to discuss the classes or about something you want to know more in-depth.
The campus is great, it is located in the centre of Milan and around it there lot of bars/restaurants where to take a break (or celebrate the end of the exams :))
besides, there are a lot of facilities like a huge library and a lot of study rooms, 3 dining halls and a completely new and very modern gym.
Although the university calls itself international, there is about a 10% rate of internationals per class, the professors are majority Italian and do not speak English well. As an international student bonding with people in the class is extremely difficult as the only time with students is during class, and we are about 150 per class.View more
I attend Bocconi University in Milan, which is one of the leading universities for management in Europe and the world. The program I chose is management and economics for arts, culture and communication. Due to my artistic side, I really appreciate the extra subjects we have apart from the “classic” management program. For instance, we have the philosophy of art where many books are read and analysed. The professors are good, however, some of them struggle a bit with English due to their Italian origin. Apart from that, the university is very well organised and professional, hence, it is easy to obtain information or help whenever required. The students are international, but of which a big fraction is Italian. There is a lot to study and to prepare for an exam, hard work is needed. In order to have average grades, you don’t need that much effort. However, to have top grades a LOT of studying is needed. Furthermore, Milan is a great city to live. It was a bit expensive but worth it. I recommend Bocconi to anyone who is willing to work hard, but also have an extraordinary university life!View more
The great thing about this University is that it is one of the few Italian universities offering such international programs. My course is unique and doesn’t exist anywhere else, so if you like arts and economics, Bocconi is the best place. The course provides both subjects concerning arts/philosophy, and ones more related to economics. Personally, I have decided to follow a different path because I am not so interested in working in this specific field, but this course is totally worth it if you want to work in a creative industry. Indeed, it gives people with a passion for luxury, arts and so on with a complete knowledge concerning management.
The best part has been the great support offered by the University in every aspect, going from on-campus facilities to monthly job fairs to better understand the kind of career we want to pursue. This is often taken for granted in Italian universities.
