Second Step – Interview

Step Three – Decision
After evaluating the application, the Admissions Committee will make the final decisions. Selection decisions will be made in phases: from May to June, for admissions in October.

The Admissions Committee is chaired by the Deputy Director, responsible for Pre-Experience Programs, which includes, among other operational members, the Academic Director of each Master's program, the Director of the Student Recruitment and Admissions Office, the Director of Institutional Relations and International Development and the Director of the Quality Department.

In the assessment of applications, the following elements are considered: final grade in the bachelor’s degree, Curriculum vitae, International work experience, proof of professional experience and motivation/objectives, and fit of the candidate profile for the program for which he/she is applying.

For the ranking of candidates, a generic algorithm is applied, which can be translated as:

CF = [5% final graduation degree + 5% International experience (outside the country of origin) + 25% number of years of national experience + 35% relevance of professional experience (it must be the experience closest to the master's degree and the most senior position) + 30% motivation and fit of the profile to the program] / 100

Occasionally, for each program and/or each application phase, the ranking algorithm may undergo revisions/adjustments.

After the final decision on all the candidates, the Admissions Committee prepares a map that gathers the information from the evaluation of all the candidates, indicating the last admission/rejection resolution.

Decisions are communicated individually to each candidate by email. Applicants are responsible for checking their email account for School communications (including spam and junk folder). If you do not get any communication from the school, you should email or call the Executive Master's Team. If the successful applicants do not confirm their commitment to start the Program, the places will be considered free and transferred to the next selection process.

Whenever requested, the result of the selection and ranking may be disclosed, in strict compliance with the provisions of Regulation (EU) No. 2016/679 of April 27, 2016 (General Regulation on Data Protection).

 

Fourth Step - Enrollment
Successful applicants will have to pay a fee of 1000€ (non-refundable), which will be deducted later from the total program fee.

Candidates will have a deadline to make their registration and respective payment, so they are not considered exceptions or late payments.
