ENHANCING EXPERIENCE - Curricular Supplementary Activities: choice, assignment and placement in the Program Structure
Individual program structures for students enrolled in the first year of a Master of Science program, include 2 compulsory credit points dedicated to Enhancing Experience - curricular supplementary activities in the second year of the program. These credit points are part of the 120 credit points required to complete the degree.
Students in the DSBA and CYBER programs may take part in Enhancing Experience - curricular supplementary activities by recording 2 credit points earned as additional courses (Information on recording Curricular Supplementary Activities for CEMS students is available in the paragraph 18.104.22.168 Enhancing Experience - Curricular Supplementary Activities).
These activities are positioned in the second year of the program, however, participation in the activities may be completed in advance during the first year of the program, as long as spots are available.
For detailed information on Curricular supplementary activities offered in the 2020-2021 a.y. see the paragraph 22.214.171.124 Enhancing Experience - Curricular Supplementary Activities.
Choice of Activities and Assignment
Students have the opportunity to choose the Enhancing Experience - supplementary curricular activities through the yoU@B student Agenda during different periods (Calls for Applications) throughout the year in accordance with schedules that will be communicated during the year.
When choosing, the student can indicate the order of preference for a maximum of 3 activities and, based on a ranking, is assigned only to one of the selected activities.
The following elements have priority in establishing the ranking:
- Second year of enrollment;
- Participation in Double Degree or Joint Degree.
The ranking list takes into consideration also the following elements:
- Failure to pass a supplementary curricular activity already attended;
- At least one supplementary curricular activity already assigned and not yet successfully completed;
- At least one supplementary curricular activity already assigned and completed successfully.
In case of equal qualifications, the ranking priority will follow the cronological order of registration for the activities.
Placement and recording of Enhancing Experience - Curricular Supplementary Activities in the Program Structure
The two credit points that can be earned are subject to meeting the attendance requirements and passing a theory-based test (pass or fail); assessment methods will be defined ad hoc for the specific activity.
Students may record up to three curricular supplementary activities in their study plan: of these, one is placed in the academic career as part of the 120 credit points required; the other two will be additional courses.
Students enrolled in the MSc in DSBA and CYBER can record up to two curricular supplementary activities as additional courses.
Please note that any additional curricular supplementary activities may be placed in the individual study plan in addition to (and not as an alternative to) other additional courses.
The 2 credit points earned for each activity:
- are recorded in the academic career upon passing the final theory-based test (pass or fail);
- are not included in the calculation of the GPA;
- are not included for the purposes of Bocconi rankings for exchange programs (Exchange, CEMS);
- are valid for ISU Bocconi scholarship rankings.
