    Edoardo Magalini

    "I was particularly impressed by the BSc in International Politics and Government ’s international environment and the chance to debate with people from all over the world.

    Testimonial from The possibility to combine the economics and management fields with the digital one., student at Bocconi University

    Matteo Montoro

    “Hi everyone, I’m Matteo and I come from Pistoia, city where I attended high school. I’ve always been fascinated by maths. Besides this I’ve been playing Bridge for 2 years now and the guitar since 6. Thanks to my parents I love travelling: I’ve visited many European cities and I’m looking forward to visiting new places in other continents! Regarding Bocconi I participated in an Open Day in Florence and I started collecting information on the BEMACS course, which starts in 2016. What I found very interesting about it is the possibility to combine the economics and management fields with the digital one. This is the reason why I chose it”.
