The application is evaluated by an Examining Board, which checks that the requisites for admission are satisfied and assesses the candidate's skills and competencies.

Candidates may be required to sit for an interview ("Prova di ammissione"), aimed at verifying their skills and competencies (a list of topics and textbooks is available at the link specified below)

The exam/interview is normally waived (“Ammissione diretta”) if all of the following conditions are satisfied:

  • the candidate has obtained a minimum of 36 ECTS in economic disciplines: SECS-P/01 Economia politica; SECS-P/02 Politica economica; SECS-P/03 Scienza delle finanze; SECS-P/05 Econometria; SECS-P/06 Economia applicata; SECS-P/12 Storia economica

  • the average grade obtained in each of the two groups of disciplines is 26/30 or higher.

Remark: the Prova di ammissione is always mandatory if the final grade in the previous laurea degree is below 95/110.
