    Bocconi PhD

    Sponsored Ad:
    Does anyone know anything about PhD in Economics at Bocconi?

    I know that there are very good professors, and placement looks good, well above similar ranked schools... but what about the quality of the program, the environment (interaction with professors, seminars, exchanges, attrition rate) and reputation in the private sector? Have you got any friend attending it?

    Thanks

    their undergraduate places EXTREMELY well with US graduate programs, so I suppose the same would be true for their masters program. Plus, it is very well regarded in international organizations (virtually 80% of italians, who in turn are an overly represented nationality at intl financial orgs, came from Bocconi). And finally, recently they've been having some really extraordinary opportunities for exchanges with Yale and other high-ranking departments in Europe, where you can take a full semester of courses at no expense.

    but really at this point I'm more frustrated/pissed that they have not yet posted PhD admit results...they were supposed to be up on the website over a week ago!!

    I remember last year they postponed it from 9th of April to 30th. But they wrote about that (in their italian english) on the web. Good luck

    I am not aware that Bocconi's undergraduates go to US grad schools. I thought, since it's a 3-year bachelor, most of them stay for the Masters and then go for the graduate schools.

    Btw, the Yale program - you get to spend a year in Yale's PhD program.

    yes, thanks to the Bologna process I believe - but earlier I thought they managed to go on only with the bachelor.

    sorry, I confused the masters' one semester course thing with the Graduate Institute at Geneva - they have the exchange for masters in addition to PhD as I had mentioned.
