Academic profiles considered to be amongst the top applicants (International, Italian and Bocconi) will be considered for a Merit Award based on the admission’s application submitted to Bocconi University. A separate application will not be required. The Bocconi Merit Award evaluation will primarily be based on the candidate’s academic achievement. In addition to academic achievement, the complete dossier provided to the Admissions office will be evaluated. The Selection of awardees will be carried out by a Committee, nominated by the Rector, including the Dean of the Graduate School and the Dean for International Affairs, whose decisions about numbers, amounts and recipients is final and unquestionable. The number of awards to applicants will not be equally divided amongst the different rounds. The majority of awards will be allocated – for each category of students (International, Italian, and Bocconi candidates) – in the first relevant rounds: the final percentage of awarding for each round is at the discretion of the Committee.
