Compulsory application's requirements

1. A three or four years Bachelor's degree and Transcript of records

In the application process you must upload a scan of your Diploma (if already available) and an updated Transcript of records in English. Please express your weighted average (GPA/media ponderata) in percentage terms (e.g. 78%). In order to calculate your weighted average (up to 100%) consider the weighted average of your grades as reported on your Transcript of records and turn it into % through a proportion.

If you have not awarded your Diploma yet, you can submit your application, provided that you graduate: 

  • by the end of June: for Non-European applicants living abroad;
  • by the end of September: for European applicants or Non-European applicants currently living in Italy

A three or four years Bachelor Honours is compulsory for the enrollment to the Program.

2. English proficiency (B2 level)

English proficiency (min. B2 level CEFR) is a mandatory requirement for being admitted to the selection. The B2 level (or higher) can be certified as follows:

  • English native speaker
  • International Certificate: please refer to the art. 2 of the Call for the accepted Certificates and deadlines (ex. IELTS min. 6, TOEFL, Cambridge FCE, CAE; CPE, etc..). 
  • Previous University Qualification entirely in English (upload an official statement from your University that certifies that courses and exams were held in English)
  • GMAT score 580 or higher
  • Having passed the B2 (or higher) English language exam in another University. 

3. Statement of purposes

You will be asked to answer the following questions:

  • Why do you want to study International Management?
  • Why do you want to study International Management with us?
  • How do you think you could contribute to the class? What do you think is your added value?
  • What do you want to achieve professionally by studying International Management?

4. CV/Professional experiences and periods abroad

A brief but complete CV in English (pdf) should highlight the most important steps of your academic and professional career. There is not a specific layout required, you can choose the layout you prefer.

5. Two reference letters and the contact of two referees

At least two reference letters should be written (in English or Italian) by two referees. The contact of at least two referees must be added in the application.

Referees may be, for example, professors at the University, managers in your Company, internship supervisors, etc... A mixture of academic and business reference letters may be the best solution if you have significant work experience after graduating or as intern during your studies, but it is not compulsory. Just consider that the reference letter should support your application to the Program. 

 It is your responsibility to contact the referee and ask for the reference letter. The reference letters can be:

  • uploaded in the online application by the applicant
  • be sent to mim [at] by the Referees from their institutional/professional email address (name [at], name [at] or similar accounts are not accepted) by the application’s deadline. It is applicant's responsibility to contact the referees and ask them to send the reference letter via email to mim [at] (this option is the preferred one). The University of Trento will send a confirmation email to the referee after receiving the reference letter 

!!Letters sent from personal e-mail addresses, e.g. name [at], as well as reference letters sent in any other way that doesn't respect the mentioned procedure, will not be considered.
