Call for Applications 2018-2019 is open for both EU students and non-EU students. 

Due to the high number of requests, if you are  interested to apply for next academic year 2018-2019, we strongly recommend you to get in contact early in  2018.

If you would like to stay informed about further MIBE news, call for applications, and be notified about important deadlines and procedure, please fill the form at the bottom of this page.

EU Students


Applications for academic year 2018-2019 are OPEN (deadline: June 15th 2018)

Please see below the main pillars of the new selection criteria and procedure:

  1. Once the application has been submitted, the MIBE committee will evaluate the academic background (e.g. grades and other elements…) and resume of the students and assign a score;
  2. If you get a letter of direct admission, you can immediately enroll without further evaluation (no test or other selection);
  3. If the score is good, but not enough for direct admission, the MIBE Committee may decide to proceed with further evaluation (possible interview in person/skype call – see calendar below). On the other hand, if the score is not so good and looking at the student’s curriculum, the MIBE Committe may decide the elements are enough not to give direct admission, without interview.
  4. As soon as the student is admitted, he/she can proceed with the enrollment procedure to book a place until all seats available have been assigned. So we strongly recommend  to submit your application as soon you think you are ready, starting from now;
  5. The GMAT test – depending on score – is a further option, which means it is NOT obligatory to have it, but it is a way to get direct admission.
Calendar of Interviews for EU Students who need to be further evaluated:
– Tuesday APRIL 10th, h10:00 a.m ;
– Tuesday MAY 8th, h10:00 a.m;
– Monday JUNE 4th, h10:00 a.m;
– Friday JUNE 22th, h10:30 a.m.
All these sessions may  take place either at the Department of Economics and Management, University of Pavia – via San Felice 5, Pavia 27100, or may be organized via skype, depending on the Examining Committee’s decision. Further interview sessions may be fixed depending on the number of candidates  who need to have an interview (e.g. in July).
These interviews are invitation only:  MIBE will contact via e-mail only the students who need to be further evaluated inviting them to take part to an interview ( see  the call for application -bando’ for all details). Please remember that if you receive the admission you don’t have  to attend any interview.

Once you have prepared the above documents, please REGISTER HERE  and follow the online instructions in order to submit your application. 


Students who hold the minimal entry requirements and  have correctly applied will then have to take part to a selection interview via Skype.

The interview will consist in a 10/15 minutes conversation in English about the student’s motivations for wanting to join MIBE and about the contents of the courses taken during his/her Bachelor degree studies, so that the Admission Committee can assess the background of studies and preparation the student has.

Students who pass the interview will receive the final confirmation that they are admitted to the Master’s Programme. Further information on the Skype interview will be supplied throughout the application process directly to candidates.  


Students admitted to the Master’s Programme will need to contact an Italian diplomatic authority in their home country, in order to assemble all the documents needed to enroll and submit a pre-enrollment application with the University of Pavia. The Italian Diplomatic autority has a deadline to send pre-enrollment applications, which normally is around the end of June.

On top of the pre-enrollment application, the list of documents to assemble via an Italian Diplomatic authority is as follows:

– The ORIGINAL DOCUMENT (A COPY WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED) of the University diploma (3-year university degree) suitable for enrollment in the Laurea Magistrale

– a translation of the University diploma into Italian (either by the Italian diplomatic authority in their home county or by a translator out of a list provided by the authority). The translation should therefore be certified by the Italian authorities in the country where the qualification was awarded.

– The original copy of the university diploma must be accompanied by a declaration of its value (dichiarazione di valore in loco), issued by the Italian authorities in the country where the qualification was awarded. 

– An official document issued by the foreign university containing a list of the exams translated into Italian and legalized by the Italian authority.

University of Pavia approved a new contribution method for the academic year 2017-2018

The new system foresees-includes the total exemption from contribution for students with a family financial status lower than 23.000 euros. This will allow many students to access or complete their studies for free, except for the revenue stamps and the Health Regional Fee, for a total of € 156,00.


Other main changes are:

  •  Repositioning of the value for the maximum contribution level up to 75.000,00 € of ISEE for currently enrolled students and repeating students within the 1st year, and from year 1 to year 6- to 80.000,00 € of ISEE for students repeating from the 2nd year onwards. To identify the repeating years, we will refer to the number of enrollment years at the University compared to the normal duration of the course.
  • Conservation of the four existing contribution areas 

Detailed info on fees are provided at THIS LINK 


An annual “FLAT RATE” for tuition fees has been introduced for international students, set according to the country of origin (citizenship) of the student and the type of course (humanities or scientific area).

Detailed info  on flat rates  is available at THIS LINK

It is still possible to apply for reductions from the flat rate, if your family’income is below 23,000 euros and you don’t want to stick to the flat rate (see above info).

The ecomomic situation  of the student’s family is estimated with the ISEE indicator (Indicator of Equivalent Economic Status) and calculated for each student by the university tax Office (Ufficio Tasse).

In order to have the ISEE indicator (and the resulting fee) calculated, students with income produced abroad should provide:

* Family income for the 2016 calendar year
* List of all family members, including disabilities with percentage
* Square meters of all properties
* End-of-year bank accounts of all family members including the student
