    I worked at Bocconi University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    International environment in a nice city. Organized seminar series. Dedicated offices to PhD students. Friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Not much collaboration with other universities around the world. Most of the connection is with Italian scholars in other universities. Not that much nice research budget and not a well-organized graduate program. Fellowship is minimum and not enough. Slow to adapt and huge bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize the course work, and offer more useful research related courses. Who wants to get 24 courses and not use them at all. Do not be afraid to change the structure of program.
