The English knowledge is a compulsory requirement.

How long is the MSCPM programme?
The programme is 12 months long.

In what language is the programme taught?
The programme is taught in English, although there are opportunities for students to study the native language of the country of study throughout the programme.

Do I need to speak Italian?
No, as the medium for the course is English, students are not required to learn Italian, although they will be given the opportunity to do so.

How many students are in the programme?
The average class size is around twenty students.

Is there an age limit for the programme?
No, but the programme is ideally suited for recent University graduates and those in the initial stages of their career.

What is the application date to apply for the programme?
The final application date for Non EU students is the 31st of May, whilst EU students have until the 15th of July to apply for the course starting in 2018. However, please note that the admission process for the master is on a rolling basis, therefore the sooner you apply the more chances you will have of securing your place in the class, as capacity may be reached before the final application deadlines.

How can I apply for the program?
To apply for the programme, please follow the instructions on the Admissions page of our website. Make sure to stay aware of the deadlines for each year.

Does the MSCPM programme have a letter of recommendation form?
There is no specific form for the recommendation letters; however if you need any further assistance on the ideal template for your application, please contact infomasters@mip.polimi.it and we can provide you with further assistance in this matter.

I am currently finishing my bachelor studies, but I will not get my degree until after the application period ends. May I still apply?
Yes. Applicants may apply for the programme if they expect to graduate by the starting date of the programme in September. Applicants who are yet to graduate from their respective programme are required to submit documentation from their current school or university indicating the expected graduation date. Final admission will depend on the successful completion of this programme and will only be made once all the necessary documentation is received.

I am not a native English speaker, but I have completed my studies in English. Do I still have to submit English proficiency test scores?
No, for students who have completed their studies in English, a statement from your University stating that the medium of instruction was English is enough. The admissions team will assess your level of English during the motivational interview and if they find it insufficient, you will be asked to provide the IELTS or TOEFL score.

Do I need to sit the GMAT to apply for the course?
No, the GMAT is not necessary for the course.

How long does the admissions process last, and when do we know the final decision?
Admissions are on a rolling basis, so once all application documents have been received, we can provide you with feedback on the status of your application. This process usually takes around one week on average.

The programme costs €16,000. These costs cover the entire length of the programme, although they do not include living and travel expenses.
