More specifically, applicants who obtained their bachelor's degrees from Italian Universities are eligible for admission if they hold a "laurea" degree belonging to any one of the "classi di laurea" (degree classes) listed below under the heading "Note 1".
Applicants who completed their undergraduate studies in foreign Universities are eligible for admission if they hold a bachelor's degree in economics, political science, or other broadly related subjects (from history to industrial engineering, from management to mathematics, from philosophy to sociology, and so on), provided that their bachelor's degree may be regarded as equivalent to one of the Italian "laurea" degrees listed below. Eligible candidates must meet the following requirements:

a) They must have earned at least 60 ECTS credits or equivalent in the following fields: business administration, computer science, economics, law, management, mathematics, philosophy, political science, sociology or statistics. The ECTS credit value of foreign applicants' undergraduate studies will be assessed by the EPS admissions committee. Applicants holding an Italian bachelor's degree must have earned the required credits within the set of admissible "settori scientifico-disciplinari" (disciplinary scientific sectors) listed below under the heading "Note 2". Among these, at least 6 credits should have been earned within the following "settori-scientifico disciplinari" (disciplinary scientific sectors): MAT/01 - Logica matematica; MAT/02 - Algebra; MAT/03 - Geometria; MAT/05 - Analisi matematica; MAT/06 - Probabilità e statistica matematica; MAT/08 - Analisi numerica; MAT/09 - Ricerca operativa; SECS-S/06 - Metodi matematici dell'economia e delle scienze attuariali e finanziarie. Applicants who completed their undergraduate studies in foreign Universities should exhibit a comparable academic record or competence in logics, statistics and mathematics. Candidates will have the possibility to participate to crash-courses of Micro and Macroeconomics, Mathematics and Statistics organized by the Department. The crash-courses are meant to boost the skills in these three fields. In the absence of the above requirements, applicants can also prove that they have adequate quantitative skills through satisfactory results in the GRE or GMAT tests.

b) Proficiency in English at a B2 level or higher per the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is required for admission. The B2-level requirement will be ascertained by the University Language Centre (SLAM) upon admission as follows:

You will find the list of language certificates recognized by the University at: https://www.unimi.it/en/node/39322. The certificate must be uploaded when submitting the online application;
- English level achieved during a University of Milan degree programme and certified by the University Language Centre (SLAM) no more than four years before the date of admission application. In this case the process is automatic, the applicant does not have to attach any certificate to the application;
- Placement test administrated by the University Language Centre (SLAM) according to the calendar published on the website: https://www.unimi.it/en/node/39267/
All those who fail to submit a valid certificate or do not meet the required proficiency level will be instructed during the admission procedure to take the placement test.

Applicants who do not meet the requirement by said deadline will not be admitted to the master's degree programme and may not sit any further tests.

Applicants meeting the above requirements will be invited to a skype interview.

Fees

For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:

  • the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students 
  • the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’-  that is variable.

The University provides:

  • no tax area for students on track with exams and not on track with exams for one year with ISEE certification until 30.000 €.
  • Fees exemption on account of merit, income or disability, or if they meet other specific requirements;
  • Concessions for students meeting high merit requirements;
  • Diversified tuition fees according to the student's home country for international students with assets/income abroad;
Scholarships and benefits

The University also provides:

  • Part-time study 
  • Financial aid, refectory service, accommodation,
  • Awards and scholarships

Students who decide to study in Italy often find themselves thrown into a system and a culture which are very different from those of their own countries; they must also deal with unfamiliar and, at times, complex bureaucratic procedures.

At our University they can now count on the Welcome Desk, a service designed for students, doctoral students and interns who have come to Milan for the first time, but also to those who already live in the city and need to verify the validity of academic qualifications obtained abroad in order to enrol on one of our courses.

The Welcome Desk aims at being the international students’ point of reference for all the initial necessities of your new adventure in Milan and at Unimi.

Welcome Desk
via S. Sofia, 9/1 – 20122 Milan

The office only receives by appointment. Book through the Informastudenti service by selecting the "INTERNATIONAL" category once logged in. Applicants who have not enrolled yet should register here as external users first.
