MISB’s ‘Secret’ Weapon: The SDA Bocconi Advantage
Well, it’s not so much a secret. In fact, we’re delighted to shout it from the rooftops. Why? Because our partnership with Milan’s prestigious SDA Bocconi differentiates us from our competition in several key ways. Wondering what we mean when we talk about the “Bocconi Advantage”? Let’s take a closer look.
Introducing SDA Bocconi
If you’re familiar with the international higher education and global b-school scenes, then you’re likely already well aware of Università Bocconi and SDA Bocconi. The management school of Università Bocconi, SDA Bocconi is Italy’s leading School of Management and claims top rankings among Europe’s academic institutions in both business and economics. Just how prestigious is SDA Bocconi? Its MBA program was ranked 26th in the world by the Financial Times in 2015.
SDA Bocconi is also one of only three business schools across the globe to have received all three sought-after international b-school accreditations: AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), and AMBA (Association of MBAs).
Why It Matters to PGPB Students at MISB Bocconi
As the world’s only offshore presence of Università Bocconi, MISB Bocconi offers its students access to all of the benefits and prestige of an SDA Bocconi education, but in the heart of India’s financial epicenter, Mumbai.
What do you get from the Bocconi name when you enroll in the PGPB? The answer is manifold: a 110-year legacy of excellence across teaching, research and education; stellar international faculty; an exchange program with over 150 plus electives; and a diverse and welcoming alumni network of more than 90,000 graduates across the globe. International exposure is also at a premium; thanks to dual campus student exchange between Milan and Mumbai, as well as immersion across not one, not two, but three continents.
For students looking towards an unparalleled business education merging academic and practical curriculum, SDA Bocconi has long served as a training ground and launching point for future business leaders. As a newer and yet increasingly vital entrant, MISB offers an equal yet different opportunity for students to benefit from the same extraordinary b-school education and global perspectives, but against the distinctive backdrop of India’s vibrant and significant cultural ethos.
