Incoming Global Executive MBA students look forward to learning about business and trekking the globe

The chance to explore key business concepts and emerging trends with seasoned professionals? Check. Travelling to interesting places around the world? Check. The opportunity to develop a global network? Check.

The new Global Executive MBA program, delivered jointly by SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan and the Rotman School, checks all the boxes for ambitious executives hungry for learning more about business in a global context.

The new iteration of this program, which welcomed its first students this fall, highlights the strengths of these two leading business schools. From SDA Bocconi, students can expect to learn more about specialty industries including luxury brands and automotive manufacturing. From the Rotman School, they will get up to speed on the latest in fields like fintech and financial risk management.

Over the next 18 months, students will be flying to bustling cities all over the world — including Toronto, Milan, Mumbai and San Francisco — to explore emerging trends and business concepts up close. Their travel companions, fellow students, will include senior-level professionals working across a range of industries (including finance, tech and energy) and from various regions of the world (such as Canada, Italy, China, Ecuador and France).

“The Global Executive MBA program gives students opportunities that other schools can’t come close to providing.”

—Aaron Shapland, GEMBA ’21
