Students Enrolled Starting from the 2018-2019 Academic Year

Through the joint agreement of the European Ministers of Education meeting in Bologna, transformed the University reform of 1999 transformed the organization of the Italian university. It changed the structure of both the study plan and the degree programs in the fields of Economics and Management from one long four-year cycle to the so-called 3 plus 2, divided into two cycles (undergraduate and graduate).

The result of a homogeneous course of studies in Europe was the free movement of students within universities during their educational training and subsequently the movement of graduates in the world of work.

The two study cycles are to be considered separate; at the end of each, a final exam is required, as well as the awarding of a diploma and the certification of the title obtained.

Once the 3-year cycle has been completed the student can decide whether to enter the world of work or continue his/her university studies by enrolling in a graduate program (Master of Science or a Specialized Master).

Since the start of the Bocconi University graduate programs, the selection process has been distinct from that of the undergraduate one; therefore, admission to an undergraduate degree program does not imply the automatic admission to a Master of Science program.

The selection criteria for graduate programs are defined by the administration during the annual plan of activities and are published on the website and in the Bocconi information pack before the candidates' assessment procedure takes place.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Undergraduate School offers the following three-year Bachelor of Science programs:
 

  • 4 Bachelor of Science programs which are part of the "Management" field of study (no. L-18, Ministerial Decree 16 March 2007):
    • Bachelor of Science in Economia aziendale e management [Business Administration and Management] (CLEAM);
    • Bachelor of Science in Economia e finanza [Economics and Finance] (CLEF);
    • Bachelor of Science in Economia e management per arte, cultura e comunicazione - Economics and Management for Arts, Culture and Communication (CLEACC);
    • Bachelor of Science in International Economics and Management (BIEM).
  • 3 Bachelor of Science programs which is part of the "Economics" field of study (no. L-33, Ministerial Decree 16 March 2007):
    • Economic and Social Sciences (BESS);
    • Bachelor of Science in International Economics and Finance (BIEF);
    • Economics, Management and Computer Science (BEMACS).
  • 1 Bachelor of Science program belonging to the program field of studies (no. L-36 Ministerial Decree 16 March 2007) Scienze politiche e delle relazioni internazionali:
    • Bachelor of Science in International Politics and Government (BIG)
  • 1 Bachelor of Science program belonging to the "Scienze matematiche" field of study (no. L-35 Ministerial Decree 16 March 2007) (the program benefits from several degrees of “flexibility” according to article 8.1 of Ministerial Decree 6/2019): 
    • Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence (BAI)


Four programs share the same disciplinary foundation: Economia aziendale e management [Business Administration and Management](CLEAM); Economia e finanza [Economics and Finance] (CLEF); International Economics and Management (BIEM) and International Economics and Finance (BIEF).

The Bachelor of Science programs International Economics and Management, International Economics and Finance, International Politics and Government, Economics Management and Computer Science, Economic and Social Sciences, Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence and a class group of Economics and Management for Arts, Culture and Communication are taught in English (a knowledge of English equal to at least a B2 level is required) and have a marked international preparation.
The remaining programs, taught in Italian, need a prerequisite of English knowledge of B1 level.

Economia e management per arte, cultura e comunicazione - Economics and Management in Arts, Culture and Communication (CLEACC), Economics, Management and Computer Science (BEMACS), Economic and Social Sciences (BESS), International Politics and Government (BIG) and Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence (BAI) are characterized by specific course profiles, starting with the first year of studies.

The structure of the programs with a shared disciplinary foundation is centered around 3 modules:

  • common foundation: during the first 3 semesters the same subject foundation is proposed for all Bachelor of Science programs. Basic knowledge concerning the fields of political economics, corporate economics, and quantitative methods and law is covered;
  • characterization of the Bachelor of Science programs: the fourth semester and part of the fifth deal with subjects which characterize the chosen study program. Specifically, the subject matter of the program includes an in-depth understanding of private and public enterprises and how they work, the finance sector, sectors that deal with the general economic system, economics and the political-institutional and social contexts, with a strong focus on internationalism;
  • individualizing the educational path: in the fifth and especially in the sixth semesters, students choose how to complete their educational path by sitting elective exams which may be chosen selecting elective courses from among the general list.


The class groups, comprised on average of 120 students for the programs taught in Italian and 100 for the programs taught in English, with the exception of the class group for Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence (BAI), which is comprised of around 50 students, are structured as follows:

The program requirements are expressed in credit points.
A credit point is the unit of measurement which determines the workload students are required to fulfill. It is assumed that students are adequately prepared from the start to carry out the educational activities required by the study program. The workload includes both classroom activities (lectures, exercises, seminars) and individual study, as well as other educational activities such as preparation of the final paper.

In accordance with the ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), on average 1 credit point corresponds to 25 hours of work for the student; about 8 hours, (but no more than 10) are spent in the classroom.

The average workload for a full-time student is set at 60 credit points per year as per agreement.

To graduate, students must have earned 180 credit points.

Credit points are given for all educational activities which students carry out, such as exams for both compulsory and elective courses, foreign language and IT exams, and preparation of the final paper.

Credit points do not substitute marks; they are given when passed exams are registered. Credit points and marks make up the student's academic curriculum.

Educational Activities

The program structures are made up of a variety of educational activities to which credits are assigned. Such activities can be divided as follows:
 

  • compulsory activities: compulsory courses, first and second European language, seminars, computer skills, final paper);
  • activity chosen by the student: electives, activities carried out at other universities, third foreign language, internship).


The student's individual study plan must include at least one course taught in English (compulsory or elective).

For students to graduate, the university reform requires that they have knowledge of 2 European languages, for all programs in the fields of Economics and Management and Political Sciences and International Relations (first and second language), for the BSc in Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence belonging to the field in Scienze matematiche the university reform requires that they have knowledge of 1 European language. The rules for the choice of foreign language courses are specified in chapter 3.1 Foreign Languages.

2.1.2.
Compulsory Courses

Every program structure includes compulsory courses, corresponding to exams that all students enrolled in that program must pass.
Therefore, compulsory courses are essential in order to satisfy program requirements, and are the fundamental building blocks for the educational objectives of the program.  According to current regulations such educational activities are classified as: "basic", "characteristic" of the program's field of study, "similar or supplementary to the characteristic ones", with particular regard to the cultural context and interdisciplinary education, and "independently decided upon by the university".  

The "Bachelor of Science program structures" chapter contains a section devoted to each Bachelor of Science program where students can find the detailed program structure with the list of all the compulsory courses, their credit point value and positioning in the program's year of studies.

Course profiles are available on the website at http://www.unibocconi.eu/courses.

Detailed course programs (course syllabuses) are available on line (BBoard and yoU@B), and are also usually handed out by faculty in the classroom on the first days of lectures.

2.1.3.
Educational Activities Chosen by the Students

The educational activities chosen by the students, which include the elective courses, are selected by the students to complete their study plan. The elective course is worth 6 credit points.

Before choosing their electives students should consult the "Table of incompatible courses", the "Table of banned courses".
As an alternative to an elective course it is possible to carry out a curricular internship.

Course profiles of elective courses are available on the website at http://www.unibocconi.eu/courses.

Detailed course programs (course syllabuses) are available on-line in Bboard, in the yoU@B Diary, and are also usually handed out by faculty in the classroom on the first days of lectures.

Educational Objectives

The Bachelor of Science in Economic and Social Sciences has the following specific objectives:
  • provide a solid grounding in economics, quantitative disciplines, management and law, in order to understand - critically and from a multidisciplinary standpoint - the economic context in which individuals, firms, national and international institutions operate; 
  • distinguish the study program through a broad and comprehensive preparation in economics (micro and macroeconomics), underpinned by advanced mathematical-statistical tools and supplemented by logical-cognitive tools and elements of social sciences. This multidisciplinary approach blends the study of economic models describing ideal rational economic behavior with the analysis of real-world economic behavior (thoroughly described by modern experimental and social psychology). The aim is to foster understanding of an increasingly complex set of economic and social phenomena (such as the causes of unemployment, the structure of social security systems, globalization, and the underlying reasons for financial crises).
  • promote development of applied competences aimed at analyzing economic and social issues with a scientific and critical approach by:
    • designing theoretical models (using  mathematical tools) in order to understand logical connections and cause-effect relationships among the variables affecting the economic and social environment (e.g.: is it true that more immigrants cause higher unemployment rates? Is this question sound from a logical and economic point of view? What are the most suitable statistical methods for measuring the causal link between these variables on the basis of available data?)
    • testing hypotheses by empirical evidence and application of econometric tools (e.g.: if immigration grew by 1% in one year, would unemployment increase or decrease? And by how much?)
    • applying deductive and inductive methods that allow:
      • detecting valid (or invalid) arguments in probabilistic reasoning;
      • distinguishing truth from rational opinion;
      • understanding the differences in use of theoretical/mathematical models in natural sciences and in social sciences.
  • develop competences, in addition to knowledge, through teaching activities inside and outside the classroom, by fostering student-teacher interaction and interaction among students (ability to express their opinions, work in groups and negotiate),  as well as developing problem setting and problem solving skills;
  • develop competences aimed at mastering IT tools and two EU languages, for effective and efficient work in a professional context.

Professional and Work Opportunities for Graduates

Most graduates in Economic and Social Sciences are likely to go on to second-level studies. Nevertheless, they can access the job market directly, typically starting in:

Junior positions in the analysis of micro and macroeconomic systems

(e.g. antitrust policies, risk assessment of countries, economic regulations, government policies effects).

 

Skills associated with the position:

Graduates holding the above positions are able to:

 

  • analyze and interpret the distinctive features and dynamics of the economic system, both domestic and international;
  • contribute to socio-economic analyses, applying the most suitable quantitative methods (mathematical-statistical and econometric) and the appropriate techniques of data management and analysis;
  • address economic phenomena with a multidimensional approach, considering the psychological, organizational and social elements that may affect them.


Career opportunities:

  • second-level studies;
  • junior positions in national or international institutions dealing with the analysis of the economic system, research centers, financial firms and institutions, consulting firms.

Description of the Educational Path

The language of instruction of the program is English.
The program is structured into two areas:
 

  • the first area (of all years of studies, despite being concentrated in the first year) is largely in common with other BSc programs and involves basic training in the economic, quantitative, business and legal fields;
  • the second area charectistic - includes:
     
  1. basics of logic and critical reasoning in the first year;
  2. micro, macroeconomic and statistical analyzes in the second and third years (in the second year with elements of game theory, public economy, theory of competition and market structure, theory of finance, dealing with the same methodological approach to favor an integrated learning, the third year with elements of international economics, insights into research methods in the field of economics and social sciences, the link between culture, social norms and development);
  3. In-depth studies as part as social sciences in the second and third year (such as cognitive sciences, sociology, and organization theories make it possible to understand the choices of individuals and groups in a market context).


Students can then adapt the last part of the study plan to their individual goals through the activities to be chosen by the students (courses passed in Italy and/or abroad, curricular internship).

In addition, the study plan also includes:

  • activities to develop IT skills
  • two languages of the European Union different than the student’s native language. Italian is mandatory for students who are not Italian native speakers.
  • final paper


The prerequisite for enrolling in the first year 2020-2021 of the Program is an English level equal at least to B2 (in accordance with European Language Framework) (see the table)

Description of the Educational Path

The program is taught in English.
 

The BIEF shares part of the curriculum with other Management Bachelor of Science programs (mainly concentrated in the first three semesters), with particular focus on an international perspective.

From the fourth semester BIEF differs from other Bachelor of Science programs:
 

  • a part of the study plan is the same for all BIEF students and is characterized by the development of issues related to the internationalization of enterprises and financial institutions, international economics, business law and comparative European perspective and international development of quantitative and qualitative studies in comparative perspective.
  • a part of the study plan is instead differentiated according to the major chosen (Economics or Finance), and is characterized by major compulsory courses as well as courses chosen from related disciplines of the path. In fact, students can then adapt the last part of the study plan to their individual interests through the activities of their choice (courses to be passed in Italy and/or abroad or curricular internships).


The study plan also provides for:
 

  • activities to develop IT skills
  • Two EU languages other than the mother tongue of the student. Italian is compulsory for students who are not native Italian speakers
  • Critical thinking seminars for the development of behavioral skills and interpretation of the current competitive environment in relation to the role of companies in the economic and social context
  • Final paper
     

The prerequisite for enrolling in the first year 2020-2021 of the program is an English level equal at least to B2 (in accordance with European Language Framework); (certification table - pdf).

In addition, the study plan includes:
 

  • activities to be chosen by the student (laboratories to study arts, culture and communication in depth, courses to be passed abroad, internship);
  • activities to develop IT skills;
  • two EU languages different from the student’s native language. For the Italian class group, English is mandatory for all students who are not native English speakers; for the English class group, the Italian is mandatory for students who are not Italian native speakers;
  • seminars to develop behavioral skills (to give students the know-how to improve public speaking ability, plan and organize their work, work in groups and develop a leadership attitude);

Majors

The Metodo, critica e ricerca nelle discipline artistiche/Critical Approaches to the Arts major is arranged in 3 courses, totaling 18 CP. They are made up of 3 semesters (first year second semester, second year first and second semester), and allow students to learn the artistic and cultural language typical of Western tradition. 
The knowledge acquired gives students the appropriate background needed to critically read, understand and appreciate specific subject areas which may lead to a vocation.

The first introductory course is compulsory and held in the 4 class groups while the two second year courses are monographic courses to be freely chosen by the students whose content can change each year and they can be taught in Italian or in English. They deal with:

VISUAL ARTS AND CULTURES: to provide the student with the key interpretive keys and basic knowledge needed to approach the ancient, modern and contemporary visual arts in their complex relationship with culture, science, politics and society; and to introduce students to a historical-critical and phenomenological knowledge of the hubs of Western culture through the visual arts and their specific languages.


PUBLIC OPINION, INFORMATION, NARRATION: to study the mechanisms leading to the formation of public opinion, analyzing the value of mass communication today and in the past, their relationship with the social and political sphere, and the ways of building information and narration in new and traditional media.

Educational Objectives

The BSc in Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence - taught in English - aims at preparing graduates who are capable of understanding and using fundamental mathematical, computational, and modelling methods and who are capable of combining them with Artificial Intelligence methods (for example: machine learning, neural networks and logic programming).

The program has an interdisciplinary nature: the basic courses that are typical of the studies in Applied Mathematics are paired with the basic courses in Computing Sciences, both theoretical and applied. Physics and Economics provide the basic examples of modelling and problem solving. Moreover, the methodological pillars of Artificial Intelligence represent the unifying element of the program, since they are gradually introduced in many courses in a coordinate way.

The main purpose of the program is to prepare graduates with solid methodological bases, who can continue their studies in Applied Mathematics or in Artificial Intelligence, or opt for different fields while having acquired the knowledge of the tools of mathematic modelling and of the basic techniques related to Artificial Intelligence. This is a basic methodological program “for” Artificial Intelligence, and not yet an advanced program “in” Artificial Intelligence.

The program focuses on critical and methodological aspects, to avoid an obsolescence of the acquired abilities.


In particular, the specific qualifying goals of the degree are:

1.    to give a rigorous theoretical preparation, in terms of contents and methods, in the fields of mathematics (mathematical analysis, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, optimization, numerical calculus) and computing sciences (programming, algorithms, theoretical computer science, logical structures, methods for information management, algorithms on graphs);

2.    to give a rigorous theoretical preparation, in terms of contents and methods, in basic physics and in its modelling techniques (including mathematical methods for the modelling of classical and quantum systems, and for statistical physics), and in basic economics and in its  modelling techniques (including game theory, decision theory, and behavioural modelling);

3.     to give a basic methodological preparation in Artificial Intelligence (machine learning, continuous and discrete optimization in high dimensions and in the associated computational techniques, neural networks, elements of logic programming); 

4.     to teach how to master the main mathematical, computational, modelling and Artificial Intelligence methods for the solution of quantitative problems of different degrees of complexity, using multiple tools and constructing adequate models;

5.    to develop soft skills such as effective communication and ability to work in a team, via in class / out of class activities linked to the curricular courses; and to develop, via ad hoc seminars, further abilities which can be useful on the job market, such as the ability to evaluate the ethic and social impact of issues connected with Artificial Intelligence, sciences, and technologies and the ability to discuss and analyse in detail (also in a specific applied setting) selected Artificial Intelligence issues;

6.       besides English (the teaching/learning language of the degree), to promote the knowledge of another EU language (Italian is compulsory for students who are not Italian native speakers).

2.1.12.2.
Professional and Work Opportunities for Graduates

Junior profile, expert in mathematical, computational, modelling and Artificial Intelligence methods

Position in the workplace:

The graduate will mainly work in a team (as an internal resource or an external consultant), possibly supporting senior managers. 

The graduate will carry out activities such as:

- collection of large amounts of data, basic data processing and analysis of the information resulting from data;

- choice and use of mathematical, computational, and modelling methods for the advanced analysis of data;

- use of Artificial Intelligence methods (for example machine learning and artificial neural networks).

These activities can be carried out in different fields such as physics and other fields of natural sciences, and economics and other fields of social sciences (e.g. finance, management, marketing, accounting, etc.).

Skills associated with the position:

The graduate has a solid mathematical and computational knowledge, a solid knowledge in modelling sciences (physics and economics), and the ability to analyse problems of various levels of complexity and to develop and creatively use methods for the understanding and modelling of complex realities. Moreover, the graduate has the necessary soft skills to promptly fit in a work context and to interact in a constructive way with the other professional profiles composing the team.

Thanks to an academic education that focuses on the critical and methodological aspects, the graduate will build on his/her multidisciplinary  background to easily adapt to new problems, rapidly acquire further specific knowledge and become capable of playing a key role in many evolving and innovative fields which require continuous knowledge update.

Career opportunities:

- Second-level studies in Artificial Intelligence, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Data Science, Computer Science, Physics, Economics, Finance, and Business, both in Italy and abroad. Due to its methodological nature, the program allows to access also second-level studies in different fields, in which the analysis of large amounts of data and modelling play an important role.

- Main job opportunities: companies, institutions, research groups, both local and international, of various size, industry and setting (private/public), characterized by the need of using the above professional profile.

2.1.12.3.
Description of the Educational Path

The BSc in Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence (L-35) is taught in English.

The study plan is built on four main blocks:

  • extensive and in-depth preparation in mathematics and computer science (in the first two years);
  • basic preparation in physics and economics (in the first two years);
  • basic preparation in the mathematical and computational methods for modelling in physics and economics (in the second and third year);
  • basic preparation in specific Artificial Intelligence methods (in the second and third year).

Moreover, students can select elective activities (elective courses, to be passed in Italy or abroad, internship) to adapt the last part of the study plan to their individual goals. These are meant to give students the opportunity to widen their knowledge towards other disciplinary fields that have evolved and have become a potential ground for modelling and Artificial Intelligence methods, in particular within social sciences. The study plan also includes:

  • one EU language (different from English and from the student’s mother tongue); Italian compulsory for non-native Italian speakers;
  • seminars to develop professional skills (e.g. digital ethics, teamwork & effective communication, Artificial Intelligence laboratory);
  • final paper.

Notes 

Modules:

- code 30539 ‘Computer Science - Module 1 (Introduction to Computer Science and Programming) and code 30540 ‘Computer Science - Module 2 (Computing Theory and Algorithms)’ are respectively the first and the second module of the course code  30538 ‘Computer Science’;

- code 30542 ‘Mathematical Analysis - Module 1’ and code 30543 ‘Mathematical Analysis - Module 2’ are respectively the first and the second module of the course code 30541 ‘Mathematical Analysis’;

- ‘Advanced Analysis and Optimization - Module 1’ e ‘Advanced Analysis and Optimization - Module 2’ are respectively the first and the second module of the course ‘Advanced Analysis and Optimization’


Courses divided into modules are officially passed (and can be recorded in the student academic career and certified) only after passing both modules’ examinations. The final grade is the grade point average of the two marks, which is the credit points for the course. The mean is rounded up if decimals are equal or higher than 5, rounded down if they are lower than 5.Credit points and grades earned for the individual modules passed are taken into account for rankings within the University (e.g. Bocconi Scholarship, selection for International Programs...) and they can be viewed by printing the unofficial academic transcript at Punto Blu.
 

Foreign language and computer skills
Detailed information on foreign language courses and computer skills can be found in "Foreign Languages and Computer skills". The choice of the foreign language for native English-speaking students is explained in "Method of choosing foreign languages".


Exam sequence
Detailed information on exam requirements, i.e. which exams must be taken before others and the timelines is published in the chapter on Exams.


Electives and internship
The positioning of elective courses and internship in the first or in the second semester is merely a suggestion. Students can choose how to allocate these activities along the two semesters.

In accordance with the educational objectives of the program and the ministerial table, "Scienze matematiche" field of study, the program structure may be subject to variations decided by the Academic Bodies.

2.2.
Elective courses

Students choose elective courses in order to complete their study plan for the section relating to the "activities chosen by the students". The elective course is worth 6 CP. There is a wide choice of electives.

Università Bocconi promotes an interdisciplinary education path and therefore students can freely structure their study plan by choosing courses from the different courses offered in the academic year or from a list of compulsory courses characteristic of other Bachelor of Science programs. An elective course may be replaced by a curricular internship. For further information on choices see "Choice of elective courses".
