What will I learn?

The program gives you a strong preparation in the field of Economics and Business along with a distinctive focus on the humanities, enhancing your critical assessment skills. The variety of subjects covered is what sets it apart from the other Bocconi BSc programs.

Graduates of this program work at a wide range of companies and institutions in different industries, but the program’s approach and teaching methods make it particularly suitable to students interested in artistic industries (museums, theaters and auction houses), cultural sectors(publishing, music and television) and creative areas (fashion, design, communication and urban development).

It offers a comparative approach. Management and entrepreneurial professionals are prepared for international environments requiring the ability to adapt to and interact with different cultures and languages.

During the program, you will focus especially on project management through group projects and workshops inspired by companies and institutions, and managed by faculty members. Active learning is an essential feature of the curriculum and interaction between students with different backgrounds encourages an exchange of views and development of listening skills.

You will live in a bustling and exciting city: Milan is an ideal setting, due to the great number of opportunities to contact and meet with companies from all industries and cultural institutions of all types.
