Q: What programmes are offered by SDA Bocconi?
A: We offer different programmes. The first program is General MBA where we offer different pillars of knowledge. In the first eleven months, students go through all the possible areas of specializations likeFinance, HR, Marketing, Operations and so on. The second module includes internships followed bya specialisation. We have few electives in Mumbai and then in Milan, Italy.

Q: Please share a few details about International Immersions.
A: They come and merge with the students in the same class. We have the double degree from Paris and from Milan. We also have Global MBAs from Canada, Spain, China.

Q: What are the admission criteria and cut-offs?
A: We are a profile-based school. We look at four different things. First,we look at the academics – performance in 10, 12 and graduation. Then we take the entrance test scores into account; we accept CAT, MAT, GMAT, GRE scores and we also have our own Bocconi test. We also consider extracurricular activities. Then we have a Personal Interview. There is no set cutoff but we consider 85+ percentile CATcutofffor shortlisting.

Q: Please brief us about the SDA Bocconi Placements.
A: Across the 2 years, we work on enhancing the skills of the students and overcoming their weaknesses. Every year companies select students on the basis of those skills. In the last few years we have added a number of consulting companies. All the big brands are there in our campus for placements. But our focus is to try to match the student with the right company.

Q: What about the hostel facility and extracurricular activities?
A: We are part of a huge campus. We have all the sports facilities, all entertainment facilities. Just across the street, we also have the hostel where we host the students. There is also a separate one for women.

Q: Please share with us details about the clubs and campus life.
A: I would say that the life at our school is very interesting because we can even go out and have dinners together. There are a lot of extracurricular activities after the academics stop at around 4 or 5 in the evening. We have around 50 clubs aimed at boosting skills. The students are always together on and outside the campus also.

Q: Why should a student choose your institution?
A: Students interested in just a piece of paper and placement should avoid joining our institution because there is a lot to do apart from that. Students who really look forward to the life changing experiences should definitely join. Students are required to have at least one live project throughout.

Q: Please elaborate on international career opportunities.
A: Students absolutely have international opportunities. Maybe not as their first job but when students go to Milan they take part in the placement activities but only a part of them get placed abroad. But the careers of other students also flourish well. They might start their career in India with multinational companies but their global exposure makes them desirable candidate abroad as well.

Q: Please share any advice you have for our student readers.
A: I would like to tell them that these two years are the most important part for them. They should not just look at the final placements but the growth and development in the two years and take part in the diverse experiences.
