29 May 2023

Bologna Business School‘s Global MBA is an ambitious study path: 12 months of managerial training combined with a specialization in one of the five sectors that best represent Made in Italy in the world of innovation and luxury: AI and Manufacturing, Food and Wine, Design, Fashion and Luxury Goods, Green Energy and Sustainable Businesses, Supercars, Superbikes, and Motorsports are the tracks that make up the range of choices that BBS offers its students, graduates and young managers, who want to enter the business world or improve their positioning in the company.

The curricula are developed through three educational stages: the first, which includes general management courses; the second, focused on acquiring managerial skills; and the third, devoted to techniques specific to the chosen pathway.

Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Ducati, Marchesini, Ferragamo, Bulgari, Zanotti, Ferrarelle, Montenegro and many other local leaders in the global market actively participate in the life of Bologna Business School, influencing its curricula through the Program Advisory Board, allowing students to meet with its executives during Company Visits and Leadership Talks, and offers, at the end of their studies, the opportunity to do an internship in the company, often the first step to start a career in market-leading Companies.

The director of the Global MBA and Co-Director of the Master in Human Resources and Organization and Director of the Open Program in Digital HR Management is Marcello Russo, PhD and Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management at the University of Bologna. A Visiting Professor at Kedge Business School in France and a member of the International Network on Technology, Work and Family at UQAM Montreal in Canada, he is an expert in work-life balance and in finding unique techniques to improve one’s work-life balance. From 2019 at the head of Bologna Business School‘s Global MBA, Professor Russo never stops inviting reflection on the kind of leader one wants to be and the importance of research in this area. “The literature,” says Marcello Russo, “is also very clear in suggesting what makes a person a good leader: being kind to people, respecting their extra-work life, being a coach, not controlling people and, above all, taking care of their well-being”.

Founded on these pillars, the Global MBA brings to Bologna, in the heart of Italy and Europe, under the aegis of the oldest and among the most prestigious universities, students from all over the world with the aim of training Luxury Managers, experts in Made in Italy and innovation ready to enter the business world as protagonists.

Bologna Business School is EQUIS – EFMD Quality Improvement System accredited, one of the most important international quality assessment and continuous improvement systems for Schools of Management and Business Administration.
