3 Double Degree Programs at Università Bocconi» The Master in Public Administration I completed was very intense and challenging. Overall, it provided me with great satisfaction and selfaccomplishment. I feel like I deeply improved both my hard and soft skills. The MPA gave me the opportunity to specialize in the public administration field I m interested in, debate with highly qualified professors, create a professional network and experience a valueadded internship at the New York State Assembly. I also enjoyed American culture and traditions! Paola Cantarelli SUNY August 2009 May 2010» Double and Joint Degrees are the ultimate level of cooperation among the leading institutions within the global education scenario. They are value-added programs which in response to the needs of major corporations and international organizations are designed to educate young and talented students to become tomorrow s managers. Students must be able to tackle diversity and respond to the challenges of tough international competition using a truly global mind-set. With in-depth exposure to diversity at all levels in academics, interpersonal relations and cultures, such graduates will possess the soft and hard skills required to succeed across national and regional boundaries, thus increasing their employability and attracting an enhanced return compared to the more traditional stand-alone programs. Double and Joint Degrees are designed by top schools worldwide as opportunities for outstanding students, in response to a constant request from students to gain a real competitive advantage over their colleagues. The unmatched opportunity to complete a second degree, in addition to the degree from the home university, allows participants to: acquire further insight on specific topics (in a different country, hence in a different academic and professional environment) increase knowledge and skills by pursuing a degree in a different field and thus complementing their academic profile» "Double Degree programs are an amazing and valueadding experience for every curriculum and they allow you to truly experience and enjoy life abroad. The DD also helps you enhance your network: I worked with international students in several study projects, since group assignments were the main part of every course. Lectures were interactive so I spoke with different professors. At RSM I gained a more literaturebased, academic-driven approach to study and I also met employers during university events and worked at an interesting internship here in Holland. I strongly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to study hard and develop a career abroad." Beatrice Zoffoli RSM Rotterdam School of Management August March 2012 In this respect, Bocconi has heavily invested in implementing a series of strategic alliances leading to joint curricula in recent years and aims to contribute its core academic competencies by devoting the best resources to these flagship programs. In addition, as a demonstration of their unique importance and peculiarity in the sector of higher education, Double and Joint Degrees are often created in cooperation with local and transnational academic authorities, and require constant faculty and research interaction along with continuous support and commitment from major international recruiters. Today Bocconi can boast one of the largest offers of such programs at a graduate level among the top ranked universities worldwide. The exclusive partner schools range from key European players to prestigious global educators in the major emerging markets. All of them share a history of cooperation with Bocconi and widely recognized international standing, and they all operate in the crucial cross-border arenas, including the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, China and India). Dozens of Double and Joint Degree opportunities are hence yearly available worldwide for Bocconi s top students who are willing to broaden their personal horizons, tackle the extra workload and the challenging environments, and gain a crucial advantage in accessing important new markets. 3
