Experience during the program

SDA Bocconi full time MBA program will add tremendous value in just 15 months of your tenure in Milan. The diverse cohort of people from all across the world (35+ nationalities) and the kind of profiles they admit is an example of how much you can learn from your peers and their life experiences.
In terms of course curriculum, it is one of the most intense and best in central Europe with insightful business cases.
In terms of career services, it is easier for EU citizens to find jobs as compared to other nationalities. Having said that, if you have a target to shoot (action plan) - Bocconi has all the weapons (resources) to make it happen. So go for the KILL !

Hi Sanidhya, I've heard from some alumni that the placements are not so good for people who do not speak local languages. Is it worth spending so much? Or shall I apply for some college in English speaking country?
