Classroom diversity is now amongst the most influential criteria for not just aspirants but also recruiters. That’s because a diverse batch invariably brings more enriching learning experiences. Organisations are also focused on hiring a diverse workforce for an equitable work environment.
So, how does SDA Bocconi Asia Center fare in terms of classroom diversity? Let’s dive into the numbers.
Healthy mix of freshers and experienced professionals

The majority of experienced professionals have between 1-3 years of corporate experience across functions and industries. There are also many candidates with more than 3 years of experience.
Diverse mix of academic backgrounds
