Innovative Teaching Methods
Bocconi has a long tradition as a qualified teaching university: interaction between professors and students is enhanced through the use of cutting-edge technology to improve students’ learning experience.
Our flat classrooms are well-equipped to facilitate group working activities, business case discussions and simulations, while BBoard, an interactive multimedia and mobile platform, provides useful new tools for teaching and e-learning.
In addition, case studies, meetings with guest speakers and seminars are organized with one goal in mind: to provide students with a solid education in the context of an enriching university experience.
The status that Bocconi enjoys and the success of our graduates around the world attest to our ability to bring this goal to fruition.
On average, class groups are made up of around 100 students. Later in the program courses become more and more interactive with small group work, research and presentations assigned periodically. This gives classmates the opportunity to have a direct relationship with the faculty and other students in the program.
Course and Lectures Schedule
Lectures are generally held either in the morning or in the afternoon, allowing time for individual study and group projects during the rest of the day. Attendance is not compulsory but it is strongly advised: active participation is the best way to learn, network with peers and stay in touch with professors and their experience.
Each academic year is divided into two terms (the fall semester, from September to January, and the spring semester, from February to June). Courses last one semester and exams are generally divided into two parts (with mid-term exams): this helps students keep up with their studies.
