Centers of Excellence were conceptualized at MISB Bocconi in order to create an environment which is rich in knowledge through research.
The Objective: to create a “Global Knowledge Platform”. Through the creation of this platform, it is envisioned that MISB Bocconi will foster a partnership with the corporate community which will enable it to enrich its programs and drive value across the industry and student community. Through this initiative, MISB Bocconi generates the setting up of best practices in India through research, education and thought leadership. It will significantly bring to the front, Bocconi’s strength since its foundation which has been its openness and willingness to share the knowledge and the results of its teaching and its research with different stakeholders. The centres of excellence will be a platform to generate debate and discussion around relevant topics/ issues which will have high industry interest in India across the target business community. Relevant research both Global and local will be undertaken which will value-add to the industry in terms of current thinking, practice and direction.
