About us

Economia & Management, the magazine of SDA Bocconi School of Management, was founded in 1988 by Claudio Demattè, as an innovative channel for the dissemination of knowledge and the most advanced practices. Constant innovation is the distinctive trait that has accompanied E&M in these decades: today the Italian magazine of economic-managerial culture is a "system", thanks to the integration of E&M and E&Mplus, a digital space where you can not only browse the magazine and related multimedia content, but enjoy original information services and in-depth analysis. In addition to the historical archive, there are periodical columns, podcasts and the possibility of streaming access to the Leading Management series. Knowledge, practices and experiences: a mix to actively contribute to professional updating and public debate.
