 *Final-year students, who have not completed their degree can apply and be admitted upon condition that they receive their degree within 90 days from the beginning of the program.


We operate a two-stage admission process:

  • One EARLY ROUND which is only intended for candidates who submit either the GMAT or the GRE.
  • One REGULAR ROUND intended for both candidates who submit the GMAT or the GRE and those who take the Bocconi Test (online test). All candidates without the Gmat or the Gre are required to take the Bocconi Test.

See below the detailed Admissions Calendar with application deadlines and enrollment periods. 

Places are offered at the end of each selection round. Candidates with Gmat/Gre can apply by the first or second application deadline, but not both.
