Personal preparation

Personal preparation is understood as an adequate acquisition of knowledge and understanding of the following fields: financial mathematics, mathematics for economics, corporate finance, bank contracting, economics, financial economics, banking and statistical inference.

Personal preparation will be verified by the Didactic College through CV and Cover Letter evaluation. By rule, students are considered in possession of personal preparation if they attain the following requirements:

  • degree class:

    • ex D.M. 270/2004: L-18 Science of Economy and Management; L-33 Economic Sciences; L-41 Statistics;
    • ex D.M. 509/1999: 17 Science of Economy and Management; 28 Economic Sciences; 37 Statistical Sciences.

  • minimum degree mark: 95/110.

If the student is not in possession of both these two previous requirements (or only fulfil one of the two), personal preparation will be verified by the Teaching Committee through a written test, different for each curricula. Personal Preparation is considered positively verified if the mark obtained by the average arithmetic grade from the test (expressed out of 110) and the degree grade is equal to or higher than 88/110.

The Teaching Committee reserves the right to conduct an integrative interview.

Online application for auto-certification of admissions requirements

There are three evaluation sessions provided:

Session Filling in of Self Certification Publication of Results
1st session Wednesday 2nd May - Monday 4th June 2018 Friday 22nd June 2018
2nd session Tuesday 11th July - Monday 27th August 2018 Friday 14th September 2018

The verification of admission requirements can be carried out prior to completing all the required exams or to having graduated.

Before proceeding with the self certification of admission requirements, remember to arrange it in electronic format:

  • auto-certification of the degree with signed exams (in which the following is indicated: University where degree was carried out, classes and degree programme, degree data and marks, exams taken with the relative scientific-disciplinary sector and weighted credits). Check whether the auto-certification, completed with all the above information, can be printed from the personal area of the provincial University’s website; alternatively, use the model of auto-certification present on this page; 
  • possible linguistic certification or useful documentation to certify belonging to one of the provided cases of exemption;
  • CV and Cover Letter for verification of your personal preparation.

Students and particular cases

If you participate in the evaluation as a student, during the completion of the self certification you must substitute the degree grade with the weighted average of the exams you have taken, and the degree self certification with the self certification of enrolment onto exams.

If you are a student on a degree programme of the Old Order (before D.M. 509/99), you must fill in the self certification of requirements online, skipping over the part dedicated to inserting your curriculum requirements.

If you have achieved a qualification abroad you must not no the self-certification online, instead you must verify the possession of curricular requirements and personal preparation by accessing the specific online procedure of evaluation.

Access to the application

The procedure is not yet available: filling in the self-certification can only be carried out during the period indicated above.

Evaluation Outcome: possible cases

The result of the evaluation will be published on the website: in cases of success you may proceed directly to enrolment.

Access will not be permitted if:

  • you are not in possession of personal preparation, you must fill in the self-certification online again to participate in a new evaluation session;
  • the inserted curricula requirements do not total the amount of credits required, you must collect them by taking part in single courses (Bachelor’s Degree level) at this or another University. Once you have obtained them, you may proceed with enrolment without accessing a new online application for self-certification of admission requirements;
  • the results lack either curricula requirements or personal preparation, you may proceed with enrolment only after having obtained the requirements by undertaking the single courses and verifying personal preparation with success by participating in a new evaluation session;

If you do not have possession of certificated understanding of English language at B2 level, once you have obtained the requirements you can proceed with enrolment without accessing a new online application for self-certification of admission requirements: you must insert the useful documentation to demonstrate linguistic understanding during the completion of the online application and enrolment.
