By 22 February 2021 you will be sent a personal e-mail to the address you provided on your on-line application in which you will be informed about your admission to the interview.
You will be able to access the on-line procedure by using your ID and password and find more information, in particular:

The results of the first step of the competition is published in compliance with data privacy laws on http://www.unibocconi.eu/admissionphd (privacy is guaranteed).

Interviews may be held by communications technology which does not require the physical presence of the applicant.

The purpose of the interview is to better assess applicants’ qualifications; discuss their research proposal (relevance, international approach, issues involved) and their publications, if any; test their aptitude for the program; ascertain their proficiency in English and other foreign languages (when only self-certified), and ascertain their competence in a subject of their choice, which is part of the PhD curriculum.

After completing the interviews, the Admission Board will rank the applicants.

*Financial support by external donors is not included in the assessment criteria, therefore it does not contribute to increasing the score in the ranking for admission results.
