EU Students


Applications for academic year 2019-2020 are now CLOSED

Application period: 08/04/2019 – 20/06/2019 by 12:00

Number of seats available: 65

Please see below the main pillars of the selection criteria and procedure which are going to be applied:

  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 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, as once all the places have been taken up by admitted students who did enroll, it will not be possible to enroll anymore.
  5. The GMAT test – depending on score – is a further option, which means it is NOT obligatory to have it, but it is the best way to get direct admission (see in the official call the threshold mark for direct admission)

All applicants MUST PAY this fee in order for their application to be considered and take part to the skype selection interview (see below on this page). 

Once you have prepared the above documents, follow these instructions:

  • Go to the University of Pavia application portal HERE
  • Register (click on “Become an Applicant”)  in order to apply for MIBE (Master Programme in International Business and Entrepreneurship)

Students who hold the minimal entry requirements and  have correctly applied will then have to take part to a selection session which could consist in an interview (skype) or other types of test.  

Students who pass the selection session will receive the final confirmation that they are admitted to the Master’s Programme.

All the details on the selection session will be supplied directly to candidates  throughout the application process.


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.

Further information on foreign documents validation and deadlines can be found at this link:


Students holding a foreign qualification who have been admitted and have collected all documents required for enrollment (by the Italian diplomatic authority) will have to come and bring all the documents to Pavia in September in order to enroll. At this stage, the first installment of the tuition fee must be paid. For info on fees, please see this link

For detailed info on enrollment procedure and deadlines, see, as a reference,  page 7-8 of  the English version of the current academic year  official admission document.

The Tuition Fee is divided into three instalments

  • First instalment

The first instalment of € 156.00 is equal for everybody . The deadline to pay coincides with the enrolment deadline.

  • Second instalment 

    The second instalment is equal to 30% of the total amount due, based on the students’s family financial status or on the maximum contribution level for students who do not ask for reductions.

    Deadline: November 22, 2019

  • Third instalment

    The third instalment is equal to the difference between the yearly full fee and the amounts paid in the first and second instalments.

    Deadline: March 23, 2020.


Tuition fees are calculated based on the financial status of the student’s family (ISEE indicator)

  •  maximum contribution level corresponds to 80.000,00 € of ISEE 
  • students with a family financial status lower than 23.000 euros are entitled to the total exemption from contribution . This will allow many students to access or complete their studies for free, except for the 156 euros (first fixed instalment)

Detailed info on fees and their amount according to  ISEE range are provided at THIS LINK 

NOTE THAT the contribution area (Fee area) of the Faculty of Economics is Area 2


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.

Check your flat rate  according to your country at  this link

IMPORTANT: in case of double citizenship , one of which is EU, the latter will prevail and the contribution fees’ calculations will follow the same rules as for EU students

It is still possible to apply for reductions from the flat rate, if your family financial status 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  SOME DOCUMENTS WHICH MUST BE TRANSLATED INTO ITALIAN AND LEGALIZED BY THE ITALIAN DIPLOMATIC AUTHORITY

For detailed info on the documents required see THIS LINK.
