Bocconi is the premier institution of Business and Economics in Italy. Several faculty at Northwestern’s Economics department received their degrees from Bocconi. Bocconi receives approximately 1,000 exchange students every year, including 350 from the top universities in the US. NU students will have the option of studying abroad for a semester or full academic year. Students will pay NU tuition and will be responsible for travel and all other expenses (including room and board). Bocconi will arrange housing (dorms) on campus for NU students.
Bocconi offers over 150 courses in English, including an undergraduate program in International Economics, Management and Finance. Northwestern students would be able to take courses in either English or Italian, depending on their language fluency.
Bocconi exchange students pay Northwestern tuition ($14,460 for Fall 2012.) Students should also budget approximately $6000 for housing and meals, about $1500 for international airfare, and approximately $3,500 for personal expenses, such as travel and entertainment. All students are eligible to apply for IPD and external funding opportunities and will be subject to existing withdrawal and cancellation policies.
