Application procedure and enrolment

Admission requirements

In order to apply to IMEF Master’s Programme, you have to submit your Master’s Degree diploma (Laurea pre-riforma ante 509/99/laurea specialistica/laurea magistrale) or an equivalent foreign qualification, which will be evaluated by our International Relations Office (note: students with only a Bachelor’s Degree will be automatically rejected).

Non EU candidates with a foreign academic qualification must submit the following documents: a ‘Diploma Supplement’ issued by their University plus a certificate of exams taken during the Academic career.

In case of admittance, non-EU citizens will have to deliver a copy of Visa and their permit of stay (to be requested within 8 days from the arrival in Italy).

Italian applicants are entitled to apply to IMEF before obtaining their degree. However, they must acquire their diploma within the academic year previous to the one in which the Master is activated and submit their degree certificate for enrolment  (e.g. IMEF edition 2019-20: degree obtained within the academic year 2018-19). Applicants are not allowed to enroll to IMEF while being enroled in other university courses at the same time.

IMEF has a limited number of attendants to the course. The maximum number of places available is 20, the minimum in order to activate the course is 10.  Attendance is obligatory at least for the 70% of the total hours. Participants can drop off at any time without any reimboursement, except for what expressed in art. 8 of the University Rules for the Master Program.

A good knowledge of English (all applicants must provide a B2 English level according to the European Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)) and a solid background in quantitative methods (mathematical and statistical) applied to Economics are requested to access IMEF. Admission to the program by the Academic Board is based on a careful comparative evaluation of each candidate’s qualification. The Academic Board evaluates the candidate’s abilities and reserves the right to submit the student to an entry test.

Admissibility of graduands

Ca’ Foscari students graduating in the autumn session can still apply for the Master’s Course. In this case, the enrolment process will be considered official only after graduation.


Tuiton Fees

The enrolment and tuition fees are € 7.000. The fees must be paid in two instalments:

  • € 4.000 (not refundable) when the selected student accepts to attend the Master’s course, after receiving the Admission Letter (under definition);
  • € 3.000 within (under definition). 

Scholarships will be awarded on merit basis by IMEF sponsors to reduce the amount of the tuition fees. The fee reduction depends on your previous academic performance.
