“I strongly believe in the need to reduce social inequalities. This is why as a donor I have prioritized student support programs that can make Bocconi University an affordable choice for everyone.”
In the course of his prestigious career, Massimo Tononi, Chairman of Banco BPM, has held managerial and political-administrative positions of primary importance. But he has never forgotten his human and academic journey at Bocconi, where he forged friendships that still continue today. He shares with the University values such as inclusiveness, internationalism and commitment to innovation, in particular with regard to research into the latest trends in economics and social sciences. Massimo firmly believes in the importance of offering equal opportunities based on merit, convinced that the social mobility that comes with it is the right lever to eliminate inequalities and help society grow as a whole. This is the reason for his desire to donate to the University and offer other young people, new generations, the same educational opportunities as his own. Thanks to his support, 11 students will be able to complete their studies, 7 of them are already on campus, while another 4 will be selected the next 2021-22 academic year.
