Unique courses offered in SDA Bocconi Full-time MBA program

F1GMAT: What are some of the unique courses offered in SDA Bocconi Full-time MBA programs? How will these courses help future managers?

SDA Bocconi : The SDA Bocconi MBA is an ambitious undertaking. While it requires drive and motivation, it offers a unique opportunity to improve, personally and professionally. From day one and throughout the Program, you will be plunged into a very intensive period of full-time work that progresses in set stages. It is demanding, sometimes stressful, but it is also sustainable, allowing to set a proper balance between career aspirations and personal life.

SDA Bocconi: Integrated Curriculum:

The SDA Bocconi MBA is an integrated and innovative curriculum as it is based on real world management knowledge; it draws directly on our faculty's current research work; it blends together the analytical and social dimensions of managerial issues and instills ethical values; it takes place in a unique learning environment: academic as well as practice-based, diverse, teamwork oriented, open to the outside world and fostering interpersonal communication.

The MBA also involves you outside the classroom and after hours: extra-curricular activities actually belong to the mainstream program and offer an unrepeatable opportunity to make life-long friends and to network.

First Phase: Managerial Foundation The first phase tackles the essential management tools common to all companies and organizations, along 5 paths to Managerial Excellence. Each path involves two courses and is divided into two terms; a technical ancillary course in Quantitative Methods is also offered during the 1st term.

Second Phase: Leadership Skills At this point of the Program, you have acquired plenty of specific management skills and knowledge and put them into practice. It is now time to fine-tune your more personal qualities, usually referred to as soft skills, or leadership skills.

Many qualities are needed to be a successful leader: competency, communication and relational skills, vision, pragmatism, ethical sense, consistency, ability to negotiate and resolve conflicts, as well as to inspire and motivate people.
