SDA Bocconi, Italy Launches its Asia Center in Mumbai

We are excited to announce MISB Bocconi’s transformation to the newly minted SDA Bocconi Asia Center, the platform for SDA Bocconi in India and Asia at large. SDA Bocconi is the flagship business school at Universita Bocconi – a 115-year-old institution that is ranked #10 for Business and Economics (globally). The coveted business school recently earned the distinction of being #4 Worldwide in the Financial Times Rankings (2017) for Customised Executive Education. SDA Bocconi believes in “empowering lives through knowledge and imagination”.

The school of management based in Milan, Italy, inaugurated its presence in India in 2012 through MISB Bocconi catering mostly to the local Indian audience. As MISB completes six years, SDA Bocconi establishes it as SDA Bocconi’s pan-Asian hub, with a broader scope across India, the Middle East, China and the rest of Asia.

The SDA Bocconi Asia Center strives to create and disseminate innovative business knowledge to contribute to the overall development of individuals and organizations.

It comprises two 11-month modules, which include a 4-month specialization semester spent at the Bocconi main campus in Milan, Italy in the second module. It is an intense experience that maximizes learning opportunities in a limited scope of time. It allows students to specialize while offering the experience, the international outlook and the multicultural environment essential for a successful career in a global economy. Upon completion of the program, participants are awarded a Diploma by SDA Bocconi in Italy.

The program is taught majorly by International Bocconi faculty. The complete integration of the alumni network of the former MISB and the new Asia center into SDA Bocconi’s network worldwide further enhances the internationalisation of network for the participants.
