Only submitted applications will be considered for the selection process.
The Admissions Office will contact you in case any documentation is missing.

Admission Process

Applications are examined on a rolling basis. Those received well in advance of the deadline have a greater chance of being admitted. Therefore, it is in your best interest to submit your application as early as possible.

When we receive your application, we carry out a pre-selection based on the documents you sent. The Admissions Committee lets you know if you are considered suitable to proceed with the selection process.

If so, you will be required to have an interview, which may be held at SDA Bocconi in Milano or remotely (via Teams). This will allow you to show that you have the essential skills, talents, and motivations that are essential to getting the most out of our MIHMEP program.

The final result will be communicated once the application is complete, which means all documents must have been received and tests completed. You will receive a formal letter from Admissions Service (results are never communicated via telephone). The selection process will yield one of the following results:


  • Admission: If you are accepted, alongside the official admission notice you will receive a participation contract.
    If all available places are occupied, the school may decide to put you on a waiting list or offer you admission for the following year.
    Admission to the program is valid for the year the application is submitted. However, you can request deferment to the following year, but approval of deferment is on a case-by-case decision by the Admissions Committee.


  • Non-Admission: Admission to the program is highly selective. The selection process assesses the profile of the individual candidate while taking into account the composition of the MIHMEP class, which must be consistent with the quality and diversity the school requires. While we are aware of the deep commitment all candidates must make to go through the selection process, the school does not provide further clarifications to non-admitted candidates.
