Single Courses for Visiting Students

AY 2021-22


Bocconi University gives international students the opportunity to take courses at Bocconi on fee-paying basis.

Only students who are currently enrolled or already graduated in a University abroad can apply to the Visiting students/Free-movers program.

Due to the limited capacity of on campus facilities, the number of incoming visiting students that will be accepted for the second semester is 120.

Should the number of application exceed this limit, applicants are evaluated based on their overall profile (GPA, cv, etc.).

Thanks to the encouraging trends of the ongoing health emergency, Bocconi has decided to offer visiting/free mover students an on-campus Spring semester.

This means that students enroll in this program will have access to Bocconi facilities (residence halls, classrooms, library, etc.) and will be able to attend lectures in person. 

Courses available for visiting students

Students are offered a wide range of courses to choose from, including both the undergraduate and graduate portfolios.

The list of courses available for visiting students for AY 2021-22 will be available in the Download area.

Students can choose no more than 60 CFU/ECTS per year.

Please note that, due to the ongoing health emergency, courses can be taught in different modalities:

  • BASIC: on-campus classes that will be both livestreamed and recorded (recording available until 23:59 of the following day)
  • BLENDED: the course has a hybrid model, based partly on on-campus lectures and partly on asynchronous activities.
  • ONLINE: the course is entirely virtual (asynchronous).

Check the course list to know if the course you are interested in is going to be held on campus or virtually.

Before taking your decision, you can check the academic calendar, the course schedule and content and the exam sessions of your preferred courses in the Focus on area.
