About this event

This event is organized in collaboration with the association "Bocconi Students for Sport Management".

More and more Italian students desire to follow their dream of a higher education while keeping playing sports regularly on campus. Some of them choose to stay in Italy, while others do not miss the chance to radically change their lives and begin a new adventure overseas in the United States thanks to sports scholarships. Guest speakers will enlight us on how young Italian players can pursue this dream from different points of view.


Nicolò Baudo, YesWeCollege founder.

Tony Bassett, Associate Head Coach of Rhode Island University, New York.

Elena Pisani, soccer player for C.F. Florentia San Gimigniano, who played and graduated for East Tennessee State University in NCAA.

Moderated by Elisabetta Trinchero, SDA Professor.
