How to enroll

Admission requirements

The admission to the master degree in Economics and Finance (EF) of Italian or foreign students (both EU and extra-EU) with a foreign or Italian qualification is subject to an assessment process to certify the suitability of the candidate. This process is based on the assessment of the applicant’s curricular requirements and the adequacy of her/his preparation. The assessment is done by an Evaluation Committee appointed by the Degree Course Council and approved by the Department Council.

To access the master's degree program, each candidate will be evaluated by the Evaluation Commission on the basis of the curricular requirements and with an oral interview (to be held online) for international candidates applying for a visa (and/or in possession of a foreign academic qualification who access the online pre-assessment procedure), and for those candidates who meet only partially the curricular requirements (due, for example, to discrepancies in the credit system or in the system of qualifications obtained, or for other objective reasons revealed by the material attached to the application).

Language requirements: applicants are required to have a minimum English language knowledge (at least level B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(CEFR)). The procedures to assess the applicant’s English knowledge have been defined by the Didactic Regulations of the Course and do not necessarily presuppose the possession of a certification.

The details on the requirements and the enrolment procedures are described below.
