The international faculty of SDA Bocconi school of management has been further enriched with the arrival of Michael Spence, Nobel prize winner for economics in 2001. For the coming years Spence will be protagonist in the classroom of the MBA full-time program. In the current edition Spence taught the course in ‘Growth in the emerging economies.’
