Double Degree with Bocconi
Option for the Management of Innovation & Business Development (MIB) concentration
Why settle for one degree, when you can have two Master of Science degrees from two of Europe’s leading universities?
If you have chosen or are planning to choose the MSc in Economics and Business Administration with a concentration in Management of Innovation & Business Development, your options are now doubled! CBS and Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi in Milan, Italy, have a double degree agreement exclusively for the MIB concentration. You can see the number of seats available for this agreement by checking on my.cbs.dk. You will need your CBS login to do so.
Eligibility and application
Here you can read more about eligibility requirements and application procedures.
Please note that Bocconi University will not accept students nominated by CBS for this program if they hold an Italian bachelor's degree. Further, students who have previously applied to Bocconi are not eligible to apply to the CBS/Bocconi double degree.
Pursuing a double degree means that not only will you obtain a Master of Science from CBS, you will also obtain an Italian Master of Science with a concentration in Economics & Management of Innovation and Technology (EMIT-LS) – without prolonging your studies.

"The Double Degree with Bocconi was a fantastic experience! ... Firstly, it is an international experience that goes far beyond the typical exchange programs. Studying a full year in a truly international environment broadens your horizon. Secondly, the Bocconi brand is well recognized by international organizations. Having two degrees from two renowned European universities makes you really stand out."

Located in the heart of Milan and open to the world, Bocconi is a university of international standing in business, economics, and law. The university has been ranked among the top 20 best business schools in the world by The Wall Street Journal International Rankings, especially thanks to its School of Management.
Furthermore, Bocconi University belongs to two major international networks: the Program of International Management (PIM) and CEMS. For many years, Bocconi and CBS have worked closely together in the CEMS and PIM networks. This close cooperation has been strengthened though the development of our double degrees.
The Italian Study Style
"Even though double degree students only spend one year at the MM program at Bocconi, I still felt that we were seen as full time Bocconi students, being included in events and receiving info about different work opportunities etc. School wise Bocconi and CBS differ quite a lot when it comes to teaching methods and exams.
All courses are taken in parallel with shorter lessons and in general, the exams only take an hour where teachers test students on detail level. This was of course a challenge to adapt to but in the end it was pretty nice to get some variation from how things are done at CBS.”
