This BSc is the first undergraduate program offered by Bocconi in the field of political science, with a small multicultural class group of selected, highly motivated students, taught by a dedicated international faculty. Students will learn how to interpret the evolution of social, economic and political systems in an international perspective, understand the mechanisms of decision-making within national and international institutions, and develop skills needed for implementing and evaluating policies. Students will acquire a toolbox of soft and hard skills through active learning from a wide array of subjects: politics, economics, management, law, history and quantitative methods. Great emphasis is placed on three moments of policy-making: designing public policies which are both economically efficient and politically sustainable; implementing public policies with an effective approach; and evaluating public policies using modern quantitative and qualitative techniques. All students take part in a compulsory exchange, studying abroad at a partner university for one semester, and have the option of doing an internship. The program aims to educate future national and international policy-makers, active players in international organizations and regulatory authorities, and managers in international private firms dealing with growing non-market environments.

About University

Bocconi University was established in Milan in 1902, with a generous endowment from Ferdinando Bocconi, a wealthy merchant. Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi became the first Italian institution of higher education to grant a degree in economics. Since its inception, Bocconi has stood for liberalism, pluralism, and social and economic progress. While a private institution, Bocconi has traditionally been more than an elite university. It has consistently promoted and practiced equality of opportunity among its many generations of students, by actively subsidizing the education of disadvantaged and deserving students. In the words of its first Rector and President, Leopoldo Sabbatini, Bocconi's mission is to "promote harmony between school and life."

Today, Bocconi is a research university of international standing in business, finance, economics, data science, political science, cyber risk and law. Its research projects are funded by national and supranational institutions. By virtue of being a major node in the European and global network of business and economics universities, Bocconi exchanges faculty and cooperates on large projects with like-minded European and American universities and business schools. Bocconi has close relations with major corporations and international agencies, as well as their managers and officials, and constantly interacts with the business and economic environment to assess new issues, implement new techniques, and start new research endeavours. Bocconi University has an Undergraduate School, a Graduate School, a School of Law and a PhD School. SDA Bocconi School of Management, founded in 1971, takes care of the post-experience management education. Bocconi grants Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and PhD degrees in Management, Economics, Law and other disciplines. It also offers a number of post-experience programs, and administers hundreds of advanced courses to managers and professionals in all realms of private and public management.

In keeping with the ideals of its founders, Bocconi seeks to address the research and education needs of the European and global economy, by favouring cultural progress, international exchange, and economic integration. Bocconi conceives higher education as a continuous process that spans the entire professional life of an individual. The University promotes both economic advancement and civic values, by instilling in Bocconians solid analytical skills and a strong emphasis on ethics, so that they can contribute to the innovation and development of European business and society.

Bocconi's response to Covid-19

The health emergency has undoubtedly affected all our lives, but it has also demonstrated the Bocconi community’s capacity for resilience and innovation.

At the beginning of the emergency, teaching at Bocconi was moved from physical to virtual classrooms in less than a week. Students were able to return to campus safely in late August with a blended teaching model, filling rooms at 50% capacity and attending classes in weekly shifts. To allow this to happen, Bocconi made an investment to equip classrooms with improved technology, sanitize the campus, increase medical care and have the necessary safety and social distancing equipment.

Students enrolling at Bocconi may be allowed to start the program remotely and attend classes on campus as soon as traveling restrictions are lifted.
