As the largest city in Italy and among the wealthiest in the European Union, Milan is the financial center of Italy. Italy is the eighth largest economy in the world and the fourth largest in Europe, and recent governmental reforms suggest future growth and competitiveness in the globalized business world.

Università Bocconi recognizes that as political debates about globalization are ongoing, an economically interdependent business world has long been a reality.
