Program Director Chiara Fumagalli

This program focuses on understanding how individuals think and make decisions, whether about saving money, energy consumption, fertility or health. This is a key element for firms and organizations, e.g. when launching a new product, as well as for governments designing economic policies, tackling issues such as poverty or unemployment.

The linchpin of the innovative study plan is that individual behavior is not only determined by mere economic factors (how much I profit from a decision) but also by psychological traits (how emotions and cognitive limits shape actual decisions) and social norms (how the behavior of others, and shared common values, affect one’s decision).

This is a BSc in economics, but it is highly interdisciplinary in nature and grounded in solid quantitative and methodological foundations. With its particular blend of economic, quantitative and social science topics, this innovative program finds synergies among subjects, to attain different perspectives on leading international economic issues.

The program is among the pioneers in Europe in proposing a new integrated view of economics and social sciences, blending various disciplines. Today, sociologists make use of game theory. Demographers use economic models to analyze population dynamics. Economists talk about crime and incentives, analyzing the mind like both philosophers and psychologists do, study social stratification, and the like.

This Bachelor of Science is dedicated to students with an international vocation and an ambitious intellectual disposition: starting with a more rounded and broader educational background, the program prepares you for a higher level of specialization with a Master of Science program.

Bocconi is about more than just classes

Your years on campus are about more than just the classes you attend: Bocconi and Milan also promote activities focused on culture, sports, art and sharing ideas. They help make your Bocconi experience an exciting time that is key to personal and professional growth.

A growing campus

Our campus is a safe, multicultural and lively place, located in downtown Milan. Both its historic buildings and new spaces are integrated into the urban fabric to create an active environment, reverberating with university life. Starting in 2019, the campus will expand to include a recreational sports center, a large park and a new student residence hall.

A European and cosmopolitan city

Milan is an open, international and multicultural city, a European metropolis full of events and public services with an unparalleled nightlife. It is a renowned symbol of fashion and design, as well as an important financial, economic and business hub.

Once a Bocconian, always a Bocconian!

You become a member of the Bocconi community when you start your program, joining other students, faculty, staff and Alumni. But Bocconi is not only a real community where you spend your days on campus, but also – and increasingly more so – a community you can get to know through our online social networks.
