MBA Italy


JR984

I have been looking at a couple of schools on here based out in Italy. I studied in Spain while taking a semester abroad and enjoyed it. I would go back there to get my MBA but I would like to try a new place like Italy. The one that seems the most recognizable is Bocconi. But can anyone tell me more about University of Pisa? I have not seen it on any ranking lists, so it seems like it might be a weak program, would that be a fair assumption? I would like to start in January 2010 and most programs start either September or October of 2009. I don't want to wait a full year to apply to schools. Any ideas? Thanks!

I did my MBA at SDA Bocconi a couple of years ago and i do NOT recommend this program.
There are so many reasons why, but the most important ones are:
1. The Italian law do NOT recognize the MBA in Bocconi as a Master program. This becomes an issue if you want to work in Italy and you are not a EU citizen.
2. The school is well know in Italy, but the average italian managers do not know what an MBA is. So do not expect a high salary or a career boost if what you want is to work in Italy.
3. Italian bureaucracy makes everyone crazy. On average you have to wait 10 months for your study permit.

Hi, actually as far as I know the MBA of MIP politecnico is also recognized as Master degree and so according to a recent Italian law, students graduated from there can stay in Italy with a permit of work if they receive a job offer.

Wow I had no idea about Bocconi....that's weird because it is ranked highly in the world, and the fact that it is not recognized in Italy is weird.

What's an average salary of a MBA graduate in Italy then? For those non eu people who are lucky enough to get a job...

This is making me think twice about applying to a program in Italy.

well not all the MBAs are also Master Degree.
If you do an MBA in Italy, it doesn't mean you'll be working in Italy, I think the list of options you'll have are worldwide.

I am sorry I don't know anything about that University in terms of MBA. The 2 most reputed ones are MIP and SDA.
Pisa ia a very good University but in terms of bachelors and master degrees, I do not know anything in terms of MBA positioning...

Hi all,
I would like to study part of my MBA in an other country.
I am from México, right now I am studing at the Anáhuac University and it has the AMBA acredtitation but i dont know if i should go to SSM and finish my MBA there.

The thing is that if i go there i get a double certification. I get a mexican mba degree an italian one. I would only have to pay 100 dlls, ( obiously my budget is very limited).

The other option is to go only a few months to EADA university, in an internship plan. I wouldnt get the double degree

Thanks all
