Admission requirements and assessment of previously acquired knowledge/competences

Access requirements for the Programme

To be accepted on this degree programme you need to have a 5-year high school leaver's certificate or foreign qualification recognised as compatible, or a 4-year high school leaver's diploma plus catch-up year or, where that is no longer being run, proof of having made up an additional learning requirement.

Locally, the degree programme restricts the number of students (ex art. 2 L. 264/99) according to the resources available. The number of students who may enrol and the process of selection will be published every year by a special Call for applications.

Knowledge requirement

You also need to be capable of logical reasoning and to have a good grounding in and ability to use the main mechanisms of basic mathematics.

Knowledge test

To ascertain this, all students have to pass a knowledge test. A minimum score will be set as pass-mark to the restricted-access admission test which is entirely designed to test, if students know enough to join.

Any students admitted with a score lower than the set minimum will have to do an additional learning requirement (OFA).

Exemption from the knowledge test

The Degree Programme Board may exempt students from sitting the knowledge test in cases of:

- withdrawal,

- loss of student status,

- claim to exercise the previous system option,

- possession of an academic qualification or having done training at a foreign university,

- switching from another degree programme at Bologna University,

- transfer from another university.

Those who have taken a mathematics exam previously in their university career are exempted from sitting an OFA test on the subject.

Additional Learning requirements (OFAs)

If you fail an exam, you will be set a learning requirement consisting in taking extra tuition as decided by the Degree Programme Board.

The additional learning requirement will be deemed to have ended:

when you pass the maths exam, or pass a specific written test to be held on days set by the Degree Programme Board and posted on the University Web site.

Failure to make the OFA grade by the official deadline published on the University Web Site means having to re-enrol for the same year.

Ascertaining language skills

To be admitted to the programme you need to possess an A2 level of English, as certified by the University Language Centre. Students possessing the equivalent language certification may be exempted. Those whose English is shown by the test to be lower than A2 will be marked as having an initial deficiency in language. Making good the language deficiency is a prerequisite for taking third-year exams.

Concerning the year of the programme in which a B1 level is required, the following principle shall be applied:

  • expectation of B1 level in the first and second years: B1 level as a prerequisite for taking third-year exams.

Programme profile

A degree programme in Business Economics produces experts able to work in the business world. It aims to provide scientific knowledge and technical expertise in the field of business and market economics, strategy, marketing, finance, accounting and management control, enabling the graduate to work – and hold down a post of responsibility - in companies and organizations, or practise the freelance profession, or go on to take a specialization in business economics. In particular, the learning curriculum is based on a balanced combination of business economics, law, and quantitative skills relating to company administration, along with know-how in terms of management and finance control, accounts and budgets/balances, law and tax law. A global vision of business is favoured, especially linked to small and medium-sized enterprises seeking solutions to their problems of finance, accounting and balances. Graduates are thus taught the technical, administrative and legal know-how needed to practise as Expert Accountants on a freelance basis.

The curriculum is completed by a compulsory internship with a company, professional studio or organization, thus providing practical application of what has been learnt.
