17 New Faculty Members Will Help Bocconi Blend Knowledge

“The new arrivals are going to strengthen Bocconi departments,” says Francesco Billari, current Dean of faculty and the University's future Rector, “not just directly, but also indirectly: a feature shared by many of the new hires is, in fact, the ability to do research on topics that straddle multiple disciplines. Keeping the high disciplinary standards, this year we are acquiring economists who also deal with topics in political science or statistics, computer scientists who do cognitive science, or marketing scholars with a strong background in statistics, just to name a few examples.”
