Università commerciale Luigi Bocconi (BWL)

Erfahrungsbericht Zusammenfassung


I would do it again and in teh same way I did it. I recommend you to get in contact to people of the country you are visiting before you go. That will make it much more easy to get integrated not only in the community of exchange students but to get in touch with the people and the culture. Imagine you liked the place you go and you want come back, but you don´t meet nowbody, because all the people you have known are went away. When you come back to your home-country, care for the students that come from yout host university, that´s real exchange.

Kosten und Gebühren

Don´t even want to know it. Change your living custums, caffé and pasta are cheaper, beer is much more expensive and worst. Be italian!


The exchane office organized some cultural events like for example a visit to the scala, museums, a concert of italian arias held by quite good tenors in a very old villa in teh center of Milan, normally not accessible for tourists. There is also a buddy-system. One time the week is an international party organized by the differnt universities of Milan.

Das Studienangebot

International Marketing
This was the only-one thaught by a native speaker in english. There was a Guest Professor from NYU who was very competent. The motivation of the proffessor was not very high, neither from the students.

This course was very interesting because we learnt a lot about cultural differences, problems of integration, etc. Very intersting also the stories from a former Segafredo Zanetti manager. High votes.

Weitere Einblicke


I went by train, it takes about 12 hours to get there from Cologne, but just like this you really feel that you have changed location. Surely you can also go by car, but not the newest one if you want to keep it. Moving in Italy by train is very cheap and the trains are not more irregulary than in Germany.

Das sollte man mitbringen

Mobile telephoning is much cheaper as in Germany, usually you use prepaid cards. You are Nobody if you are´nt "rintracciabile". Try to distinguish yourself in clothing from tourists visiting Italy, you are not on vacation.


The first months I stayed in an apartment with two itaklian guys which were friends of friend of mine. So if you are selected for an exchange, take use of the possibility to get to know some to some patriates which are currently on exchange on your universtity. Sometimes they can even provide you an accomodation. Later I lived in another appartment where another CEMS students and two nice italian girls lived. Student residences aren´t bad because it is an easy way to know a lot of people. The residences are all clean but not so cheap. You will have to pay at about 300 Euro.

Die Stadt


I really enjoyed this semester. Milan offers you alot of possibilities so that everybody should be able to find what fits best to him. It has not much sense to recommend any bars ,because it changes every year. One exception: Do not miss Trattoria Toscana in Corso di Porta Ticines, e´un classico!

On the weekend most milanesi go out to the lakes, in to mountains or to the sea. Some Hints: Belaggio (Lago di Como) , Cinque terre, Santa Margherita, Verona, Bologna, everywhere
