Program Overview

About Luigi Bocconi University

Luigi Bocconi University logo

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.

Academic Information

If you are accepted to IBEX, you will attend two individual advising meetings to plan and revise your schedule: one with NYU Stern Academic Advising and one with the NYU Stern International Programs team. As you build your academic schedule for your semester abroad, carefully review and consider the following course information.

 

IBEX Course Information

  • You may take a full semester of business classes while abroad on IBEX.
  • Leave room for at least two general electives in your schedule. This allows you to:
    • Take interesting, location-specific courses not offered at Stern, and
    • Have more flexibility during the course registration process.
  • Reference the IBEX Course Guide: What you can or cannot take.
    • You can take a maximum of two classes per concentration.
    • Accounting courses cannot be taken for credit toward the Accounting or CPA majors/concentrations.
    • All IBEX grades will transfer back to NYU Stern as Pass/Fail.

 

Previously Approved Courses

  • Listed below are courses that were taken previously by Stern IBEX students and have already been approved for a specific NYU equivalent.
  • There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. It is important to be flexible. Have a Plan A and Plan B and the space to take some electives.
  • If a course is already listed below as approved, it does not need to be reviewed again, unless you want to see if it will count towards a new requirement.

 

Finding New Courses

  • You are not limited to only taking the courses listed on this page.
  • If you see a course on Bocconi’s website that you would like to take, but it is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Exchanges & Special Programs team for approval.
  • Once Bocconi publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is being offered.
