International Opportunities

Participating in international programs is an extraordinary chance for students to grow and improve both their academic and personal skills in a multicultural environment. Bocconi believes strongly in the value of studying abroad. For this reason, during recent years the University has developed long-lasting partnerships with prestigious universities and institutions worldwide..

  • 37 Joint and Double Degree partner schools in 20 countries
  • more than 2,050 slots within the Exchange Program, with over 650 slots at the graduate level 

International opportunities are available to MSc students enrolled in their 2nd year and over 50% of MSc students who apply spend a semester or an academic year abroad. 

The Exchange Program - which includes the Erasmus Program - enables students to experience a long period of studying abroad, according to bilateral agreements with more than 280 universities in 55 countries. The universities involved in the Program are the most highly selected institutions in the fields of Management, Economics, Law and economics-based Social Sciences worldwide.

The program is open to graduate students regularly enrolled in their 1st year of a Bocconi Master of Science Program. Selected students can then attend a single term at one of the international universities during their 2nd year. Courses taken abroad can then be recognized according to the rules and procedures for course recognition.

Bocconi has developed Double Degree programs in cooperation with prestigious Universities in Europe, Japan, Singapore, China, India, Brazil, the US, Canada and Australia.

The Double Degree program offers graduate students the chance to spend one year at Bocconi, acquiring core knowledge and skills, and to specialize in their field of interest while attending one year at an international host institution.
Provided that the academic requirements of both institutions have been met, students of the Double Degree program receive both Bocconi's Laurea Magistrale and a graduate degree (usually a Master of Science) from the partner institution.

The program requires the student to attend an entire academic year abroad, with an estimated overall involvement up to two and a half years. Students develop diversity of thought, international management competencies and a truly global mindset.
