Results and Enrollment
The Admissions Committee evaluates the complete applicants’ profiles by considering all documents uploaded to My Application, the test performance (if required) and the places available in the selection round for the programs chosen by the applicants.
According to the timeline established for the selection round, applicants can access their admission result by entering the “My Application” Portal and clicking on “Results.”
The outcome of the selection process will be admission or non-admission. Only Bocconi applicants in the Career Session may have the outcome of non-admission and be placed on stand-by/waiting list.
Admitted students will receive a conditional offer, whose validity is confirmed only under the following conditions:
- meeting the mandatory curricular requirements
- completing the enrollment application by the deadlines.
If the requirements are not met or enrollment is not completed by the deadlines, the offer of admission will be revoked.
"Non-admission" is a final outcome that cannot be appealed. It is determined by the evaluation of several variables: the academic performance of the first-level university program, the performance on the test (where required), given the overall spots available and the quality of the application received for the program(s) applied for.
Non-Admitted Students on the Waiting List
Only some selection rounds may result in a stand-by/waiting list outcome.
Applicants included on the “waiting list” are in any case NOT admitted students. In fact, due to a lack of available spots in the choices indicated, it was not possible to assign the applicant to one of the chosen Master of Science programs.
At the end of the enrollment period, if there is remaining availability of spots due to lack of enrollment among admitted applicants, the top non-admitted applicants on the waiting list may be contacted.
The Admissions Office will contact students following these criteria:
- Priority will be given to students who have expressed the MSc program for which a spot has been made available during the application for admission
- In the absence of students on the waiting list who have expressed such preference, the other students who have not indicated the MSc Program available may be called, in order to check their interest in admission.
The number of applicants placed on the waiting list is generally limited, considering that historically few spots remain available at the end of enrollment.
In case of admission, to confirm the place that you were offered, the enrollment procedure must be completed, which includes an online form and meeting specific curricular requirements.
Enrollment for the LSE-Bocconi DD, Sciences Po-Bocconi DD programs and the Joint Degree in Cyber Risk Strategy and Governance have specific procedures and requirements. Please see the Focus On area for more information.
