Global Executive MBA

Course Description

.The Global Executive MBA provides a high-quality business education for executives who desire to expand the scope of their careers and move toward more international business initiatives. It is a launching pad for the career phases to come and an integrated preparation for senior management roles.

Regional focus. Global thinking
The course takes place at SDA Bocconi downtown Milan campus, a city that incorporates a dynamic global venue reflecting the peculiarity of the European marketplace.

Three modules are also conducted at international partner schools: UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles, Fudan University in Shanghai and Copenhagen Business School. In addition, you can apply for an elective offered by partner Schools including UCLA Anderson, Recanati in Tel Aviv and Rotman in Toronto, besides electives offered at SDA Bocconi in Milano.

Fluidity of time and space
The Program's curriculum and the format are designed to move participants along a theme-driven path, beyond conventional assumptions.
Flexibility is maximized through a dynamic format that blends the best aspects of classroom learning in Europe, North America and Asia with distance learning. Participants do not miss out on any professional or learning opportunities no matter where they are.

Influential international networking
Participants to SDA Bocconi Global EMBA can capitalize on a network of leading individuals and institutions.
Classmates possess broad experiences, from an array of backgrounds. They also have the opportunity to really move through a cross-nations context.
SDA Bocconi made a choice to have three modules conducted at international partner schools: UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles, Fudan University in Shanghai and Copenhagen Business School; the program also offers a varied and flexible choice of electives, at SDA Bocconi in Milano or at international partner institutions such as UCLA Anderson, Recanati in Tel Aviv and Rotman in Toronto. Such diversity of locations is meant to be a channel for interacting with various industries and creating a milieu for participants to gain tangible insights into how management theories and practices play out in different business settings.

Return on investment
The expertise EMBA students gain is immediately applicable in their respective organizations. They become smart decision makers, effective problem solvers, and well-prepared leaders able to take on increasing responsibility.
Both participants and employers receive a quick return on their investment as new concepts are brought into action.
