Student Life

A European Business Center

Milan is at the center of the main north-south and east-west European routes. You are never far from global business centers with intercontinental flights from Malpensa Airport. Italy is the linchpin between Europe, the Mediterranean and markets to the south and east in addition to being at the heart of European trade and a gateway to the growing economies of Eastern Europe and Asia by rail and Mediterranean ports.

Culture

The great Italian masters of the past have left their sign on the history of art, followed in the 20th century by internationally influential Futurists and Arte Povera group.

In Milan, you can stroll through the Brera collection, the eclectic Poldi Pezzoli house museum or view contemporary art exhibitions at the Fondazione Prada and the famed Triennale. Milan offers a total of 150 art galleries, 28 museums and 38 theatres.

Enjoy life

If you ever exhaust the leisure opportunities that Milan offers, you still have the entire range of Italian tourist attractions. The Italian Alps are an hour's drive away for skiing, walking or climbing. The lakes and their mild climate and beautiful gardens are even closer. You need only two to three hours by car to enjoy the Mediterranean coast, whether you head to Venice and the Adriatic Sea or the Liguria Riviera with its cozy villages steeped in sun and history.

Expo 2015

With the Expo 2015, Milan is making itself available to promote the Country’s growth and be an Italian ambassador in the world.

Milan and its territory represent the ideal candidate, in Italy and in the world, for Expo 2015 because together they:

  • are situated at the center of an area of about 10 million inhabitants.
  • produce 10% of the domestic GDP (a level equal to Brussels or Madrid), have a per-capita revenue that is almost twice the domestic one and an unemployment level as low as half of Italy’s as a whole.
  • register 40% of the new innovation patents, equal to the annual production in Boston
  • sell millions of tickets yearly for art, music and cinema shows, with the same population rate of Berlin, Amsterdam and Barcelona.
  • house 650 fashion show-rooms, on par with Paris and New York, and is the Italian center for voluntary service and the tertiary industry.

Accreditation

Choosing SDA Bocconi means choosing one of the few business schools in the world to hold the triple crown accreditation, which is awarded by three of the most prestigious school accreditation associations worldwide: AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA.
