Assessment of personal competences and skills

Admission to the Programme is subject to the possession of the described curricular requirements and to the passing of a test to assess the students' personal competences and skills, which will be done through the assessment of the candidate's curriculum, the evaluation of the previous degree,  and any other useful documents that the candidate may submit to the specific Board .

This assessment is not required when the graduation grade is equal or superior to 70/110.

The Board might reserve itself the right to opt for a student interview. The interview is aimed at verifying student’s former knowledge and skills in the fields of quantitative methods and economics.

If English is not the native language, master candidates are required to demonstrate their English proficiency. The minimum accepted level of English proficiency is B2.
There are two available options to certify the English level:
1. By providing official certificates, as released by recognized institutions;
2. By interview with the Teaching Commission (only in absence of other appropriate forms of certification);
Students who hold an international language certificate, previously enclosed in the early application, are exempted from presenting other
forms of English proficiency certifications.
Similarly, students who previously attended bachelor/master degree courses in English, students whose mother tongue is English, and
students who already cleared 30 CFU in English are likewise exempted to provide the aforementioned certifications.
