Historic Feat: SDA Bocconi School of Management’s MBA Program Ranked #6th in the World


The 2023 MBA Rankings by the Financial Times have brought forth a historic achievement for the SDA Bocconi School of Management – its full-time MBA program has been ranked sixth in the world. The one-year MBA program has surpassed some of the most established schools in the world to attain this outstanding recognition.

It is important to note that the ranking by Financial Times is one of the most prestigious rankings in the world.

“It is the most difficult ranking, coming from the oldest tradition of American business schools,” says Stefano Caselli, Dean of SDA Bocconi. “For this reason, the sixth position is a very prestigious achievement, but more importantly, it is a demonstration of the strength of our school, an open and inclusive, international place that can attract and transform talent from all over the world to make a significant impact in society.”

The ranking is a matter of great pride for the International Master in Business program that SDA Bocconi partially runs at SDA Bocconi Asia Center, Mumbai which allows meritorious Indian students to achieve masters from SDA Bocconi with a meaningful Indian experience. The programs offered at SDA Bocconi Asia Center, Mumbai effectively mix the practical learning approach of the full-time MBA program with the familiar structure of a top Indian post-graduate program.

The programs at SDA Bocconi Asia Center offer a tight-knit and diverse environment, with an international specialization immersion in Milano along with students joining from as many as 80 nationalities during immersions. Interestingly, the programs in India and Milano are taught by the distinguished international Bocconi faculty, who teach around the world and bring international experiences and cases into the classroom. This, combined with a unique peer-to-peer cultural interaction is what makes the programs and their learning experience so unique.

The SDA Bocconi School of Management is one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious business education institutions, and the ranking has further helped establish its brand value on the global stage for the Bocconi Alumni community of 120,000. The prestigious worldwide ranking is sure to solidify SDA Bocconi’s presence as one of the top business schools in the world, attracting in turn the most highly-motivated goal-achievers worldwide who are looking for a transformational learning experience in their careers.
