Program Overview

About Luigi Bocconi University

"Bocconi was established in Milan in 1902, with a generous endowment from Ferdinando Bocconi, a wealthy merchant who intended to commemorate his son lost in battle overseas. Bocconi thus became the first Italian institution of higher education to grant a degree in economics. Today, Bocconi is a research university of international standing in business, economics, and law. Its research projects are funded by national and supranational institutions. Bocconi has close relations with major corporations and international agencies, as well as their managers and officials, and constantly interacts with the business and economic environment to assess new issues, implement new techniques, and start new research endeavors." - Luigi Bocconi University
