Requirements for Admission

The application process for the first Edition of the program is now closed. The online application will be available starting from Fall 2017.

To apply to the SDA Bocconi DBA, candidates must be fluent in English, have a bachelor degree (or higher) and, most of all, substantive (10 years+) professional experience.

A key piece in the application process is the statement of purpose in which prospective candidates reflect on their professional trajectory, current professional state and describe their research interests, objectives and motives for pursuing the SDA Bocconi DBA. The statement of purpose should not be longer than 2500-words and include all the elements that the candidate deems noteworthy and relevant to support his/her candidacy. In addition, two reference letters commenting on the candidates’ quality and motivation will be required. A copy of a valid passport is also required at application. Once received, applications will be screened for fit and quality by a selection committee and candidates could either be invited for an interview or invited directly to join the program. In addition to the first admitted in-take of candidates program applications will be considered on a rolling basis and successful candidates can begin their program at any time with the first available module.

Candidates joining the program at any module after Residential Module 1 will have to complete the whole sequence of modules before they can move on with thesis work. Regardless, individual/personalized program experiences can be identified and designed by the candidate with the agreement and support of the candidate’s academic supervisor and program director.
