World citizens stop in Milan: Bocconi international students share their journey

Bocconi University is one of the top higher education institutions worldwide, offering English-taught bachelor and master of science programs in the fields of economics, management, finance, political science and data science.

Studying at Bocconi means joining a multicultural community in the heart of Milan, Italy’s commercial, financial and fashion capital, and also its most cosmopolitan city.

Mauricio, a 2nd year master student from Honduras, chose Europe as the next stop of his international journey, after having studied in the US and gained some work experience in Asia and Latin America. “I was not only looking for a top master’s program, but also for an enriching life experience that would boost both my personal and professional growth. As one of the most prestigious business schools in the world and located in such a vibrant city, there was no doubt that Bocconi was the one.” Now, after one year, he confirms he couldn’t have made a better choice. “I am a firm believer that in order to become the best, one must be surrounded by and learn from the best. Being in a class full of top talent from all over the world is an extremely stimulating experience and constantly challenges you to develop your skills to their fullest potential.”

Phillip, a 3rd year bachelor student from Australia, echoes this appreciation for the international environment, while underlining another defining feature of the Bocconi experience. “One of the best aspects about Bocconi in my opinion is the campus life. Moving halfway across the world and coming to a country where you don’t speak the language can be daunting, but the Bocconi community makes you feel right at home. The atmosphere is really welcoming and also exciting: there’s always something to do and it’s a great way to meet people. Sadly, because of Covid, a lot of it has transitioned online but Bocconi is striving to make sure that students can interact between themselves and they still get as much of the university experience as they possibly can.
