Single Courses for Visiting Students

AY 2022-23

FALL SEMESTER 2022 (Sept 2022 — Jan 2023)

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 each semester is 120.

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

Thanks to the encouraging trends of the ongoing health emergency, Bocconi will offer visiting/free mover students an on-campus experience.
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 2022-23 will be available in the Download area in early July. You can refer to the list of courses for the current academic year, considering that we do not expect major changes.
Students can choose up to 60 CFU/ECTS per year.

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.
