MISB Bocconi: An International Imperative
As economic boundaries continue to dissipate, tomorrow’s business leaders will require a unique global outlook. While many business schools make claims about cultivating an international viewpoint, MISB Bocconi takes it a step further thanks to an active network of exchanges, collaborations, and interactions all over the world.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes us a truly international business school.
An International Heritage
As the world’s only offshore presence of Università Bocconi, MISB Bocconi is, by its very nature, international. In fact, our MBA School in Milan, SDA Bocconi, numbers among an elite group of MBA programs to lay claim to all three of the leading international accreditations, including the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business); EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) and AMBA (Association of MBAs).
This pedigree alone earns our graduates sought-after status among today’s top global companies, but it’s just part of the bigger picture.
International exposure is plentiful at MISB Bocconi thanks to plentiful opportunities for exchange, including the requisite Exchange Semester at Bocconi, Milan and an optional Campus Abroad summer program offered at destinations on three continents.
Both programs offer intensive insights into new countries and cultures through the study of conceptual theories, country-specific seminars, dynamic classroom exchange, and real-world case studies and visits to local companies, institutions and organizations.
The result? A stimulating academic experience, as well as a closer look at international issues within the framework of a specific geographic area.
Students walk away with unparalleled understanding of both the critical Indian context; thanks to our bustling campus in the heart of Mumbai, as well as a distinctive worldview fostered by studies abroad.
Promoting International Understanding
More than 1,200 international students from 80-plus countries convene at SDA Bocconi every year. Helmed by esteemed international faculty, our diverse classrooms — both in Mumbai and Milan — not only foster enriched perspectives, but also lifelong friendships. These connections stay with students long after they’ve graduated and secured placements at some of the world’s most prestigious companies.
If you’re considering business school, you’ve likely come across the phrase “international perspective” during your research. But how many of these schools have a plethora of opportunities for international exchange built into their curricula? At MISB Bocconi, it’s far more than just a buzzy catchphrase; it’s an institutional ethos interwoven throughout the entire b-school experience.
