Selection criteria

In the "Early session", the element of evaluation is the student career as 31 July 2019.

The participation in the "Early session" is reserved to the "In corso" students (For the definition of "In corso" students, please refer to the document available in the “Download area"). Students are also required to have obtained at least 110 credits (out of those in the program structure for the first and second year of the program) by 31 July 2019, with a weighted average of at least 28/30 (without rounding).

Please note that the weighted average taken into consideration for admissions purposes might be slightly different compared to the one shown on "Punto Blu". This is due to the fact that, for admissions purposes, exams divided into modules are considered separately.

In the calculation of gpa will be considered Educational activities (exams) with grades expressed in thirtieths included in the Study plan for the 1st and 2nd year of the course. Therefore, it will not be taken into consideration:

  • exams completed for Campus Abroad/Summer School by July 2019 but pertaining to electives in the 3rd year;
  • curricular internships already recorded if pertaining to the 3rd year of the program.

Ranking Definition

At the end of the application period, the Admissions Office will verify that all those who have submitted the application comply with the above-mentioned requisites. Students who do not fulfill them, will not be considered for the "Early session".

The Admissions Commission will subsequently evaluate the number of applications meeting requirements, submitted for each Master of Science program.

If those applications do not exceed 60% of available seats, applicants will be admitted without selection and offered the opportunity to proceed to the enrollment.

In the event that the number of applications exceeds 60% of available seats, the Admissions Commission will create an Admission ranking (Please find more details in the document available in the “Download area") and based on this, available seats will be assigned.

Please note that considering the strong motivational aspect for the “CEMS MIM”, “CHINA MIM” and “ESSEC-Bocconi” programs, candidates interested on these courses will be evaluated regardless of the number of applications received.

Candidates not admitted can reapply in the "Career session" (Application from February to April 2020).
