The MSc program requirements are expressed in credit points.
A credit point is the unit of measurement which determines the workload students are required to fulfill. It is assumed that students are adequately prepared from the start to carry out the educational activities required by the degree program. The workload includes classroom activities (lessons, exercises, seminars) and individual study.

In accordance with the ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), on average one credit point corresponds to 25 hours of work for the student; about 8 hours are spent in the classroom.

The average workload for a full-time student is set at 60 credit points per year as per agreement.

To graduate, MSc students must have acquired 120 credit points.

The credit points assigned to each individual educational activity are gained when students pass the exam or when their progress is verified in other ways required by the activity.

2.1.
Educational debits and preparatory courses

Università Bocconi offers preparatory courses specifically designed for first-year students who, during the undergraduate degree program, deal with courses which were not directely related to their  MSc program (the lessons are designed to give students an in-depth understanding of first-year courses) .  Attendance to the preparatory courses is highly recommended.

For more information, see chapter 7.1.4.

Students enrolled in CLG-LS program, who graduated from other universities, are required to resolve anyMinisterial and/or Bocconi requirements which were determined when enrolling. Therefore, the student's individual study plan is composed of the 120 credit points needed for the MSc plus those credit points relating to educational debits.

Detailed information about educational debits is available on the website at http://www.unibocconi.it/graduatedegrees > Educational debits

2.1.1.
Enrolled in the Master of Science in Giurisprudenza [Law]

 

Students enrolled in their first year of MSc in Giurisprudenza [Law] who hold a degree from other universities can be admitted with educational debits to make up.

Educational debits are divided into two distinct categories:

  • Ministerial requirements and
  • Bocconi requirements

The Ministerial requirements are derived from the minimum number of credit points required for the area* (Economics,Management, Mathematics-Statistics)and subject group in accordance with DM of 28 November, 2000.

Students have educational debits when the number of credit points obtained for the undergraduate degree plus those of the graduate degree do not meet the minimum number required by the Ministerial tables referring to the chosen graduate program.


The Bocconi requirements refer to the specific skills and knowledge identified as essential to succeed in the graduate degree program. These specific skills are linked to courses characteristic of chosen undergraduate  and graduate programs.

 

How to Identify Educational Debits

 With reference to Ministerial requirements:

During admission the Admissions Office  calculates the Ministerial requirements students need to make up based on their official academic transcript  (including course titles, credit points and  subject groups) issued by the university of origin.

Theoretical Bocconi requirements for students enrolled in the Master of Science in Giurisprudenza [Law] are:

6003 Contabilità e bilancio/Accounting and financial statement analysis, SSD P/07, 6 CP

6015 Metodi quantitativi[Quantitative methods], SSD S/06, 8 CP.

2.1.1.1.
How to make up educational debits

 With reference to the Ministerial requirements:

  • educational debits equal 1 or 2 credit points can be resolved with the final exam for the conferral of the degree;
  • educational debits equal to or greater than 3 credit points: students must pass a personalized assessment exam.

With reference to the Bocconi requirements they

can be resolved by passing a specific exam.

Assessment methods are specified in the courses section.

 

Deadlines for resolving educational debits

 

Educational debits equal to or greater than 3 credit points can be made up in any exam session before conferral of the graduate degree.

 

Bocconi requirements can be resolved by exams passed during the graduate programme by September 2008 exam period for students enrolled in the first year of studies 2007-2008 academic year ; failure to do so will result in the student being unable to sit any other exams of the graduate program until the educational debit is resolved.


Last change 25/03/2008 16:10



2.1.1.2.
Implementation of the personalized study plan

  • After Admission, the Admission Office announces the Ministerial requirements and the theoretical Bocconi requirement. Students are asked to check if their undergraduate degree study plan includes courses with the same course profile as those that Università Bocconi considers as Bocconi requirements. In that case, students must bring the course programs with them when completing enrolment, so that the Admission Office can send them to the MSc Program Director for assessment (either total or partial credits).

  • Upon completion of enrolment the Admission Office collects any course profiles of courses passed during undergraduate studies for which students may be awarded credit (total or partial) for the purposes of resolving Bocconi requirements. The Admission Office sends the student data to the MSc Program Director. By the end of October the program Director informs the Admissions Office of the following:

-         the courses (with codes from undergraduate programs) for which the student must resolve educational debits (the Program Director  determines with the student  how to resolve the educational debit)

-         if the courses for which the student has submitted programs have been granted total or partial credit for resolving Bocconi requirements.

Only after completion of the check by the MSc Program Director, shall the Ministerial  and net Bocconi requirements be added to the study plan.

*the Program Director of the Master of Science in Giurisprudenza [Law] (by comparing the student's study plan with the program structure of the Bocconi undergraduate degree directly linked to the desired graduate degree) identifies the code of the undergraduate course necessary to resolve the educational debit. To ascertain the course profile and  resolve the debit, the MSc Program Director coordinates with the Course Director.

** For the purposes of assessing credit for exams, the Program Director coordinates with the Course Director.

2.1.1.3.
Credit points earned to make up educational debits are included in the student academic career

The credit points earned to resolve Ministerial and Bocconi requirements are marks expressed out of thirty that are not included in the calculation of the grade point average.

For debits equal to 1 or 2 credit points students DO NOT register for the exam as the debit is resolved by the final exam necessary for the conferral of the graduate degree.

For debits equal to or greater than 3 credit points students must register for the exam whatever the assessment method for resolving the debit (written paper, traditional oral exam, etc.). The mark is recorded in the official exam session and registered in the student's academic career . The debit is resolved when the mark is recorded.

2.2.
Educational activities in the study plan

The MSc program structures are made up of educational activities which earn credit points, they are divided in :

  • compulsory courses;
  • activities chosen by students: electives or other educational activities (e.g. workshops or assignments);
  • first and second  EU foreign language (for the CLG-LS a second foreign language is optional);
  • Internship or similar activities;
  • thesis.

Last change 10/08/2007 14:46



2.2.1.
Compulsory courses

Every MSc program structure includes compulsory courses, relating  to exams that all students taking that degree must pass.

Compulsory courses are needed in order to satisfy program requirements and they represent the fundamental building blocks for achieving the educational objectives of the degree program. They can be classified as: "basic", "characteristic" of the degree's field of study, "similar or complementary to the basic ones or the characteristics ones", with regard to advanced level education for the exercise of highly qualified activity in specific areas, and "independently decided upon by the University" (ex  Ministerial Decree 509/99).

This chapter contains a section concerning to each MSc program where students can find the detailed program structure with the list of all the compulsory courses and compulsory courses that can be chosen by the student, credit point value and position in the program.

Some study plans include compulsory courses and/or curriculum that can be freely chosen. For procedure see chapter 10.

Students can receive credit for exams concerning each compulsory course taken at universities abroad as part of the programs offered by the International Relations Service, unless they are part of the list of not recognized exams.
Students can receive credit for exams recognized either in full or partial after the course program has been integrated according to the procedures that can be found in chapter 8, paragraph Credit for exams passed at universities abroad.

Course profiles are available on the website at http://www.unibocconi.it/courses.

These profiles are identified with the following initials:

  • CC compulsory courses of the MSc program;
  • CO compulsory courses chosen as an alternative to another compulsory course for the same MSc program.

Detailed courses programs (course syllabuses) are available from the secretary's office of the Institute responsible for the course, they are also generally given out in the classrooms by teachers on the first days of lessons.

2.2.2.
Educational activities chosen by students

Elective courses are chosen by students in order to complete their individual study plans, as provided for by the curriculum of studies, the major chosen, from  the group of courses offered by the University and/or offered in collaboration with other universities.
These courses are part of the educational activities freely chosen by the student (ex Ministerial Decree 509/99).
This chapter contains a section concerning  each MSc program where students can find the detailed program structure with the number of electives scheduled.
Elective courses are generally worth 6 credit points.

The choice of electives must be made at the start of the second year of studies for all programs with the exception of the DES-LS / ESS-LS for which the choice must be made during the first year of the course. The procedure is indicated in chapter 10, paragraph First-year procedures and administrative deadlines.

Before choosing their electives students should consult the "Table of incompatible courses" and the "Table of banned courses" that can be found in the appendix.


The "Incompatible courses table" indicates the courses that cannot be chosen together in the same study plan because their course programs are either exactly or partly similar. The "Banned courses table" indicates the courses that cannot be included together in a specific MSc program.

The exams related to electives can be taken at universities abroad as part of the programs offered by the International Relations Service. The criteria and credit approval procedure is indicated in chapter 8, paragraph "Credit for exams passed at universities abroad".

The course profiles are available together with specification of the course's instruction language (Italian and/or English) at http://www.unibocconi.it/courses.

These profiles are identified with the following initials:
AI electives
Detailed course programs (course syllabuses) are available from the secretary's office of the Institute responsible for the course,  they are also generally given out in the classrooms by teachers on the first days of lessons.

Workshops are interdisciplinary activities worth 3/6 credit points. Student evaluation is exam based and marked out of 30 by the workshop teacher.

Assignments involve students carrying out individual research on topics decided upon with the Course Director of either a compulsory or an elective course included in the study plan. Student evaluation is based on the written assignment which is marked out of 30.

Compulsory courses, recommended majors, elective selection criteria and choice groups for each MSc program are listed below.

 

The educational offer for the 2007-2008 academic year will include an e-learning class group for some elective courses already taught in the same semester with traditional methods.

2.4.2.
Career opportunities

Students graduating from the IM-LS program pursue careers with an international perspective in mainly three types of companies.

  • Large Multinational Firms: in large companies, IM-LS graduates can work in diverse departments and in different roles that require cross-border management. They will work efficiently in multi-cultural teams. Their knowledge on international functional strategies such as global sourcing, international marketing or international finance will give them access to a broad range of career opportunities in  multinational corporations. 
  • Consulting Firms: a number of management consulting projects today aim at helping multinational firms to improve their international strategic positioning and the organizational integration of the network of subsidiaries. The IM-LS program prepares the students for tasks involved in cross-border consulting projects.
  • Companies Operating in Symbol-Intensive Markets: the program reflects the unique competences Italian firms are known for on a global scale. Our graduates will be a strong asset for firms competing in industry segments that base their competitive advantage on the symbol creative design and marketing of symbol-intensive products.
  • Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs): graduates will be able to take on the role of business development manager, export manager or expatriate manager in a foreign country which contributes to the expansion of the SME in foreign markets. They will be capable of identifying and selecting foreign market opportunities and exploit them through exporting or other market entry modes. Our graduates are prepared to operate as corporate entrepreneurs in foreign countries.
  • Research Centres and Educational Institutions: in these organizations, IM-LS graduates can make a significant contribution, due to their systemic and inter-functional knowledge of the firms.
  • Government Agencies: the IM-LS program strongly emphasises applied economics and economic policy. The practical study of governments and supranational institutions in world business makes our graduates ideal candidates for positions in governmental agencies.
