Bocconi University, founded in 1902, was the first Italian university to grant a degree in economics.
Bocconi’s modern building lies in the heart of Milan, near the centre of the city, 20 minutes walk from the Dome.

It has more than 14,500 students, a faculty of 1,400 members and approximately an administrative staff of 600. The university is part part of prestigious international university networks, which hold the top spots in world rankings.

Bocconi University’s new building, located at the corner of viale Bligny and via Roentgen, is the fruit of a project by Dublin-based Grafton Architects, and in particular is the work of Shelley McNamara and Yvonne Farrell.
Striking forms, suspended spaces, natural lighting, materials drawn from the local tradition and adapted to a contemporary style. From an architectural point of view, the design hinges on two basic ideas: floating volumes and diffuse natural lighting.

Today, Bocconi is a research university of international standing in business, economics, 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 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 endeavors.

Bocconi grants Bachelor, 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.

Bocconi Centre for Geography, Resources, Environment, Energy and Networks (GREEN) was established as a result of the merger between CERTeT and IEFE. GREEN aims to conduct and promote research projects at the intersection of the spatial of socio-economic phenomena and of climate change, transportation, environmental policy and energy markets. The main areas of research are:

  • Economic geography and local governance: Spatial analysis of socio-economic phenomena (e.g., economic activities, local development, housing) and local public policy


  • Environment and climate change: Environmental analysis and policy at global, local and firm level.
  • Networks and public utilities: Economic analysis of specific sectors such as transportation, energy markets, telecoms, water and sanitation, solid waste management, geopolitics of international networks

The research approach is highly multidisciplinary and oriented towards addressing policy-relevant issues at local and global scale.
