Program description:

The 1-year full-time MBA is the School’s flagship program with around 100 MBA students. The program starts with the Opening Week: a one-week MBA boot camp, during which you are asked to understand and live the essence of your forthcoming year. The full-time MBA structure is organized around three cornerstones: Planning and Innovation, Leading people and Processes, Controlling and Investment. These core courses represent the competence requirements of a global manager. Students spend the first eight months of the program taking foundation courses and developing management and entrepreneurial skills followed by Concentrations: In addition to 4 functional-based Concentrations, such as Finance, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Marketing, the SDA Bocconi Full-Time MBA Program offers participants the possibility to further personalize their development through the field-based Concentration in Luxury Business Management (LBM) in partnership with GUCCI, LVMH and Valentino, the renowned leaders in the worldwide luxury business. This unique option is one of the very few Concentrations in Luxury Business Management within a top ranked International MBA.From June on, a two-month real-world, hands-on experience (individual internship or entrepreneurial project) takes place. The very last part of the MBA will take place in the Arrivederci Week: Arts and Business, The Sharing Economy, Government-related Finance, The Transformational Impact of Big Data Marketing, and first-hand “Made in Italy” business models and Blue Chip Companies.
