Bologna Business School (BBS)

Promoting managerial culture and enhancing knowledge transfer

BBS represents the leading organization of the Department of Management’s Third Mission, promoting managerial culture and enhancing knowledge transfer.

DiSA’s Head of Department is a statutory member of BBS’s Board of Directors. The Dean of BBS or his/her delegate is a member of DiSA’s Teaching Committee.

  • The primary field of activity is lifelong and continuous learning through:
  • Full-time Master’s programs, accredited by the University of Bologna and targeting young graduates;
  • Executive programs targeting managers and entrepreneurs;
  • Corporate programs, customized for companies and other institutions;
  • Open Programs targeting professionals for short-term training on specific topics

BBS and DiSA collaborated for the prestigious international EQUIS accreditation system, issued to just 1% of the worldwide business schools by the EFMD-European Foundation for Management Development. So the BBS is now part of the small group of global business schools that meet the most stringent quality requirements for teaching staff, students, programs, practices of sustainability, and diversity inclusion.

With the accreditation of BBS, there are now four executive-level higher education schools as a part of the international EQUIS accreditation system in Italy.
