Mumbai, July 2022: SDA Bocconi School of Management, Italy is amongst the top-ranked international business schools from Europe. In 2011 SDA Bocconi had launched the pan-Asian hub with the opening of SDA Bocconi Asia Center in Mumbai aiming to enhance the School’s global presence with delivery of postgraduate and executive education programs.
The quality of SDA Bocconi’s teaching continues to grow manifold. The Financial Times 2022 Executive Education Combined Ranking brings the B-School to new global success with 7th place worldwide. This ranking combines two rankings: Custom Programs, i.e. the customized courses designed together with and for companies where it is ranked 4th worldwide, and Executive Open Programs, offered to professionals and organizations where it is ranked 13th worldwide. Positive reviews came from overall satisfaction of participants and their inclination for future use – the likelihood that clients would reuse the same school for other programs again in the future. In The Economist’s “Which MBA?” ranking, SDA Bocconi’s Full-Time MBA moved from 3rd to 2nd place in the continent, and ranked 13th worldwide, an excellent result factoring the career opportunities it offers its participants and the quality of its faculty, the two main indicators that drive it to success.
Reacting to the global rankings, Professor David Bardolet, Dean, SDA Bocconi Asia Center said, “Our consistency in placing atop of the international rankings is simply a reflection of our commitment to delivering a unique learning experience to post-graduates and executives. It is an experience that combines 1) a design that is customised to the needs of the corporation or the individual, 2) content that is practical and actionable while at the same time deeply rooted in the latest research insights and 3) a delivery by experienced global faculty that is both intellectually challenging and enjoyable.”
Alessandro Giuliani, Managing Director, SDA Bocconi Asia Center said “Our strong growth in the flagship programs has now been complemented in Executive Education, where the quality of our faculty is coupled with their now 10 years’ experience in India too, with a unique capacity to adapt teaching and approach to the Indian market: while we are number three in this ability (Economist rankings), in India this specific leadership is even more evident.”
A trailblazer in European business education, the SDA Bocconi that ranks FT’s 5th Best Business School in the continent continues to build the Asia Center in Mumbai for last 10 years with its commitment to empowering talent and strong personalization to the organizations through the School’s offerings. Over 1100 candidates have been graduated from programs delivered at SDA Bocconi’s Asia center in the span of last ten years. SDA Bocconi has had many fructuous collaborations with Indian organisations such as Larsen & Toubro, Tata Group’s TCS and Tata Consumer Products, Future Group, Welspun, Cipla, Indian Railways, etc.
