MBA students and alumni from all over the world will descend on the coastal town of Santa Margherita Ligure, near Genoa, Italy, for a three-day sailing competition that starts Sept. 27.

The Rolex MBA Conference and Regatta—hosted by corporate sponsor Rolex, Yacht Club Italiano, and SDA Bocconi School of Management, whose sailing club coordinates the event—will have more than 350 student participants from 11 countries. Participating business schools include Harvard Business School, University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. Last year’s winner was a Swiss school, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
