Faculty & Research

Intesa Sanpaolo

“In an advanced country, the University is one of the main institutions and sustaining inclusion, research, and innovation projects impacts its quality on an international level”.

masciandaroThe consolidated strategic partnership between Intesa Sanpaolo and Bocconi has existed for more than 15 years and is founded on a strong sharing of values and mission. A large international banking group, Intesa Sanpaolo is aware of the notable impact on the social and environmental panorama on which it works. This is why it has integrated solid principles of social and cultural responsibilities into its business model, with the objective of creating long-term value for the community. This is also achieved through initiatives in conjunction with Bocconi that can contribute to the growth of the Country, mainly from the perspective of innovation and scientific research, but also in terms of the development of skills and training in the economic-financial sector. Today the objective is to further enhance the partnership with Bocconi, which over the years has breathed life into multiple initiatives aimed at sustaining deserving students, the Faculty (with 2 permanent professorships in Political Economics and in Economics of Financial Regulation) and in Research (BAFFI-Carefin Center).  
Recently Intesa Sanpaolo extended its collaboration with Bocconi also to research on the frontier of emerging topics, like through collaboration with the Course in Cyber Risk Strategy and Governance or the support of SUR-Lab (Sustainable Urban Regeneration), whose mission is to develop and spread knowledge of sustainable urban regeneration processes.
