Students for a while, Alumni forever. Behind this motto lies the true sense of belonging to Bocconi.
This connection is demonstrated each year by all the Alumni who have not sat in campus classrooms for many years.
The event (previously called the Old Guard and now Alumni Senior) invites Bocconians of yesteryear – for their 40th, 50th, 60th and 70th graduation anniversary – to come back to the hallways and spaces where they were educated, where they grew and decided who they wanted to become. A lot has changed, but many things – the truly important ones – will never change.
Alumni Senior is not just a time to remember the past and celebrate an anniversary: it is also an opportunity to make a concrete contribution to the future of those who have now decided to undertake the same path at Bocconi.
This is why we have associated a fundraising project to the event that each year celebrates the anniversary of such an important moment.
The Alumni Senior Scholarship Fund was created with this objective: to support new Bocconians through a donation, thus providing a sense of continuity between the many generations of Alumni, united by the same values, the same life experience and the same sense of belonging.
Thanks to the support of Alumni, 5 students have been able to study at Bocconi since 2013: Federica Belli, Maddalena Cunial, Giacomo Loi, Giuseppe Leone and Marco Graziano.
