2. COURSE CONFIRMATION (9 — 11 February)
During the first week of the semester (5 — 9 February 2024) students will attend all the courses indicated in their online application, in order to make sure that their study plan suits their interest and that both the content and the schedule of each course fit their expectations.
After that, they are required to take their final decision on their study plan for the semester, before enrolling.
During the enrollment (9 — 11 February) students will need to confirm their course choice, based on the first week they've spent at Bocconi.
They can add/drop/change their courses, but in the end they will need to confirm at least 2 courses for their semester.
After the enrollment period, no further changes will be allowed.
For this reason, it is mandatory to double-check the class timetable and exam schedule of the courses selected before confirming your choice, in order to avoid possible overlaps.
Exam dates can't be changed or postponed, so your decision has to take this into consideration
In order to complete their enrollment, applicants need to log in to MyApplication portal from 9 to 11 February in order to:
- Confirm their course choice
After attending their courses in the first week of the semester, students should take their final decision.
It's their opportunity to add/drop/change courses in their study plan.
After the deadline, students won't have the chance to change their study plan anymore.
- Pay the course fees through the Bocconi Store: according to the amount of credits for the courses selected
- Select "single courses" and add the number of credits according to the courses you have chosen (€ 170.00 for each credit).
