Hi Everyone,

Just finished my interview with SDA Bocconi. Lasted about 40 minutes and went well (I think). Mostly a qualitative interview, with the basic MBA questions. I did lots of research into the program and school, and watched various masterclass style videos on the website. I had completed my application on April 30th, and received an invitation to interview on May 9th.

A little about me: Non-traditional MBA applicant, 31, Non-Profit/Social Entrepreneurship background with 5 years of experience. Lived in 4 continents, and travelled to dozens of countries. Educational background in Criminology/Sociology with a strong research background. Studied only 6 weeks for GMAT (only the Quant section), scored 700 (Q49, V35).

I was informed that decisions post interview should be made within 2-3 weeks.

Nice to see the posts from all the candidates. I have been invited to interview by SDA Bocconi. It would be great, if everyone could share their interview experiences. Also, for those who are enrolling, what factors made you choose SDA Bocconi.

Hi everyone! I just received an admission offer! :-) Let me introduce myself to my future classmates (hopefully everything goes well) as well to the applicants who are waiting for the Admissions decision.

My name is Scott. I'm a Filipino, 29 yrs old, and I've been working for a total of 6 years. I'm a chemical engineer. My work experience revolves around process/chemical engineering and sales. I'm currently working in Singapore for over a year now at Ecolab (chemical industry). I worked for the same company back in the Philippines. Our division, Nalco Champion, provides chemical treatment for hydrocarbon and water in the oil and gas industries.

Has anyone enrolled for the pre-course?

I am not sure about either. Are you enrolling? What is the fee for the pre-course and how useful is the pre-course?

I'm still waiting for something before I make my decision. The factors I consider in choosing MBA programs are the location (Europe), program length (1 yr), international mobility ranking in the FT, internship, ROI (Forbes ranking), program cost, international exchange program, and a few other things. What made you choose SDA Bocconi?

The pre-course is for people with limited business background (like me, a chemical engineer) who don't really deal with financial statements, future cash value, APR, macroeconomics, etc. I got the information about the pre-course (fees & self-assessment) together with the admission letter and forms. Check your email again or request Bocconi

Almost the same factors as yours. However, I would like to have a clear idea on the placement scenario at Bocconi.

From what I gathered, if you're looking at working in Italy, you should start learning the language. The app, Duolingo, is a great (free) way to start!

SDA Bocconi is not that popular in the US but I think it's recognized in several countries in Europe and Asia. I was interviewed by an alumnus who's working here in Singapore.

Hi BS55

I would expect it to take between 3-5 weeks from the day of your interview considering that it is the 2nd week of June

Good luck ! Keep us all posted

Well BS55, they have interviewed you despite that low GMAT score and I can assure you that with such good work experience, it would be easy to ignore your application !

Hello Everyone!!
Hope all are doing good!
I have a quick query related to the admission decision timeline.
I was interviewed on the first week of April and have been waiting for an intimation since then.
Few days back i dropped a mail to the AO asking about the status of my application but haven't heard from her yet.
Did any of you faced something similar or could guide what should be done in these cases?
should i call the AO's number and talk to her directly or should wait for more time?
I am an Indian candidate with technical background and around 7+ years of experience.
Thought of formally introducing myself on getting a conversion mail.
Still keeping my hopes high with crossed fingers.

Thanks in advance
