The Alumnus of the Year is Stefano Sassi, Valentino's CEO

PLEASE NOTE: the event is sold out; registrations are closed. The award goes to a "serial" Alumnus: he's a 1986 DES graduate and he also chose to attend an MBA at SDA Bocconi, graduating in 1990. For him, Bocconi has twice been the starting point of his career. Let's celebrate together on 21st October.
