Bocconi Information Session – 27 October

If you cannot make the Open Day on the 28 October, this may be perfect for you.

Bocconi University is pleased to invite you to join us on Friday 27 October at 6:45pm for an overview of our offer, including BSc and MSc programs, international and career opportunities and student services. The presentation is targeted to high school and university students.

We will talk about the tremendous experience that Bocconi offers to its students, and explain the preferential relationships that our university entertains with top employers in the country, as well as with multinational companies and organizations operating in UK and in the rest of Europe.

The City is a top destination for many Bocconi graduates . In fact every year we organize Bocconi&Jobs, a career event reserved to our current students, where dozens of high caliber companies and organizations are available for interviews related to internships and job positions. The event will take place on the same day as the Info Session.

Join us on 27 October at Hilton London Tower Bridge and find out about our programs: studying in Milan might just be your future ticket back to London!
