The educational activities are organized into class groups. For the 2017-2018 academic year compulsory courses of the first year of studies there are 21 class groups, 22 for the compulsory courses of the second year, 22 for the compulsory courses of the third year. For each course, the class groups of the BSc programs held in Italian have about 120 students each. The class groups of the BSc programs taught in English have about 105 students each; this number is different depending on the program and year of studies. For the Bemacs, Big and Wbb programs, class groups have less students.

There is also an e-learning class group for some courses.
For further information check the course profiles.
Such learning methods are offered only to students unable to attend lessons regularly; however, the traditional methods have preference and are recommended by the University since they are the most effective.
For information relating to credit points, language of instruction, semester, and Degree Programs offering these courses please check course profiles published on the website at: www.unibocconi.eu/courses.

Repeating class group
Some courses also include repeat class groups for students who are behind normal academic progress, that is, students who have not yet passed their exams for the previous year or years. These students, if they wish, must follow the lessons in the class group dedicated to them.
For the course profile and learning methods of repeating class group students are advised to follow the instructions given by the teachers. Detailed information on teaching of these courses (course syllabuses, exam methods, professor consultation hours) can be requested at each Department.
Students who wish to attend these courses must sign-up for the class groups they are interested in until the maximum number of places available is reached.
The list of repeating class groups along with any sign-up methods (code of the activity, deadline to sign up and number of places available) is published on the website at www.unibocconi.eu/classtimetable.
If students must sign-up, they can view in their yoU@B student Diary the activities they can sign up for.

The class timetable has been planned so that educational activities are mainly concentrated in either the morning or the afternoon, in order to make it easier for students to dedicate the other part of the day to individual study.
In the first semester of the first year, for example, CLEAM students have lessons on 3 mornings (Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays) and 2 afternoons (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) per week, while students enrolled in the other programs have lessons on 2 mornings (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) and 3 afternoons (Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays) per week.
In second semester, those students who had lessons on 3 afternoons and 2 mornings in first semester will have lessons on 3 mornings and 2 afternoons, and vice versa for the second group.
Unlike the first year, the following years are structured in a more complex way as the study plan also includes major compulsory courses/courses to be chosen by the students (in the second and third year of studies) and elective courses in the third year of studies.
For all programs, except for the BIEM, BIEF and BIG, the class timetable includes timetable slots - different from the first and second semester completely dedicated to major compulsory courses/compulsory courses chosen by the student, foreign languages and elective courses. This ensures that these specific typologies of activities do not clash with each other. However, some elective courses have changed typology from compulsory courses or major compulsory courses/compulsory courses chosen by the students and can have lectures scheduled in the timetable slots dedicated to these typologies.
For BIEM and BIEF, as for the high number of compulsory courses/compulsory courses chosen by the students, it is not possible to have timetable slots completely dedicated to these typologies.
Also for BIG, as for the high number of compulsory courses/courses chosen by the students, it is not possible to have timetable slots completely dedicated to these typologies different than the slots dedicated to elective courses.
In addition, it is not possible, as for the complexity of the timetable structure, to exclude any lessons overlap between elective courses as for the high number of courses. Students are therefore always recommended to verify the class timetable of the elective courses before making the choice of the courses to be included in their study plan.
In addition, there may also be some complementary learning activities scheduled aimed to review some of the concepts dealt with during the normal teaching sessions. In general, they are held at different times from lessons (usually in the evening from 6:00pm to 7:30pm).
No educational activities are generally scheduled from 1:00pm-2:30pm on Fridays, both in first and second semester, this period being reserved for student group activities.
The general class timetable and any changes are published on the yoU@B student Diary and on the University's Internet site www.unibocconi.eu/classtimetable.
After students have enrolled in the academic year, they can view the personalized class timetable and the the daily timetable from the student Diary.
The teaching activities for the 2017-2018 academic year will follow the schedule below:
Language lessons begin on 6 September 2017 in first semester and on 5 February 2018 in second semester, just like all other courses.
