Italy’s premier business school, SDA Bocconi in Milan, is to launch an English language executive MBA programme that will include modules in the US and China.

The programme, to be launched in January 2008, comprises twelve one-week residential sessions, 10 of which will be held in Milan. The other two will be held at Fudan University in Shanghai and the Anderson school at UCLA in Los Angeles.

The co-operation between the three schools will also extend to sharing elective courses, says Roberto Donà, Bocconi’s EMBA programme director. “The three schools are a good mix because Anderson is focused on the services industry and innovation…. Fudan is the best gate to China and Asia, with a good academic standing and an English speaking environment. SDA Bocconi offers an innovative programme and a focus on family business and the luxury industry”.

The English language programme will be modelled on Bocconi’s existing Italian EMBA programme which graduated its third class last December.

The English language EMBA will be a two-year programme, graduating its first class in December 2009. Course fees are €38,4000.
