8.5. Additional courses

Additional courses are those whose credit points provide more than the 180 credit points needed to fulfil the Italian degree requirements. WBB students who choose to spend the fourth year of studies at Bocconi University can include a maximum of three additional activities in their study plan, provided that they have passed all course exams of the first two and a half years (only academic activities having an equivalent in the Bocconi study plan will be taken into account).

Additional activities can be selected from among foreign languages and elective courses; students can also have one internship as an additional activity.

To calculate the grade point average, only two additional exams may be considered (those for which students received the highest marks; if grades achieved are the same, the courses with the highest number of credit points are considered).

The choice of additional activities (courses and/or internship) is carried out starting from the fourth year of studies by sending a request via Help&Contact - Study plan - topic: Study plan change between from 28 July 2021 to 21 January 2022.

Additional courses may be removed by sending a request via Help&Contact. It is not possible to remove an activity from the study plan which has been passed and recorded.
