GUIDES TO THE UNIVERSITY
Bachelor of Science Programs
Internationalization at Bocconi University has been a strategic priority pursued since 1974, the year in which the first international agreements were put into place. Over the years these programs have developed an extensive network of relations and exchanges with prestigious academic and cultural institutions all over the world. That means there is constant collaboration with foreign universities (international business schools, Departments of Economics and, since the 2015-2016 academic year, also with Departments of Political Science) on research and joint teaching projects, thus providing Bocconi students and teaching staff with invaluable international experience. Thanks to its network of international relations, Bocconi University is able to offer its students several opportunities to acquire the kind of business training which is necessary for dealing with global economic developments.

The Bocconi University "Exchange Program" (including the LLP/Erasmus Program) deals with student exchanges under bilateral agreements with over 275 universities in 54 countries across 6 continents, giving students the opportunity to attend courses for which they can receive credit as part of their Bocconi degrees. The international universities included in the program are some of the most renowned institutions in the world in the fields of management, economics and social sciences with an emphasis on economics, law and political science.
In fact, Bocconi University belongs to some of the most prestigious international networks: CEMS (The Global Alliance in Management Education), PIM (Partnership in International Management), GULF (Global University Leaders Forum), GNAM (Global Network for Advanced Management) and Themis (Network in International Business Law).

Students interested in attending a semester abroad outside the Exchange Program can enroll at a number of universities abroad where they can study only during the third year of their Bachelor of Science Program as part of the Free-Mover Semester Program (fee-paying Visiting Students or Independent Students). The Free-Mover Semester abroad is therefore incompatible with participation in the Exchange Programs.
Bocconi University has identified a number of schools from among those in its international network that have accepted such students in previous years. The list of universities abroad will be published on the webpage at www.ir.unibocconi.eu. This is the only list considered valid for the recognition of exams taken in schools abroad as part of the Free-Mover Semester Program. Any other applications for alternatives will be examined individually beforehand by Markets and External Affairs Division-Study Abroad. The application, accompanied by a motivational letter and information about the chosen university, must be given to Markets and External Affairs Division-Study Abroad before enrolling at the foreign university for a Free-Mover Semester Program.
The credit approval procedure is explained in "Credit for exams passed at universities abroad".

Documents for the participation in the exchange program
The Study Abroad Office (Exchange program) must be contacted by the selected student if, as part of the application procedure or participation, the foreign partner university requests a document for admission to the program and/or information relating to enrollment at Bocconi along with the student's academic career. The same procedure is applicable in case the document of admission to the program is required to obtain a visa. Any procedure changes will be communicated to the interested students.
