1. The School

Bocconi University

Bocconi University is a teaching and research university of international standing in economics, management, political science, data science and legal studies. Founded in 1902, it was the first Italian university to offer a degree in economics.

Bocconi combines a strong theoretical background with real-world applications, aiming to provide selected students – from Italy, Europe and the rest of the world – with a truly international education that leads to professional growth and superior access to the job market. We are committed to providing merit and financial-need based scholarships for talented students who will be the business leaders of the future.

By virtue of being a major hub in the European and global network of business and economics universities, Bocconi exchanges faculty and cooperates on important projects with like-minded European and American universities and business schools. We have close relations with major corporations and international agencies, and constantly interact with the business and economic environment to assess new issues, implement new techniques, and start new research endeavors. 

Our programs in economics, management and finance are among the best in the world. The QS World University Rankings lists Bocconi among the five best institutions in Europe in these fields, while the Financial Times ranks our Master of Science degrees in Finance and Management among the top ten worldwide.
