Date and place

The entrance test will be held on Monday 3rd September 2018 at 10.00 a.m. at the School of Management and Economics, in Turin in Corso Unione Sovietica 218 bis. If necessary, a further centre will be identified in Turin, different from the School of Management and Economics.

Absence of the candidate on the day, at the place and at the time established for the chosen test will be considered as a renunciation of the test, whatever the cause or impediment that has caused said absence.

 

Registration

To sign up for the admission test, submit the dedicated application on-line from July, 2nd,  to August, 6th, 2018.

 

The entrance test is the same for all the master degree courses and will be held in Italian, with the exception of the entrance test for the Degree Course in Business Administration, which will be entirely in English but identical in content.

 

When applying to register for the entrance test, candidates must indicate the degree course/s for which they wish to apply. In order to ensure that all the available places for each of the degree courses are used, candidates are allowed to express a maximum of three options, in order of preference, from among the degree courses of interest. In any case, the choice cannot be changed; the order of preferences expressed will be binding and, once the test registration application has been completed and confirmed, it can no longer be changed.

 

If the candidate selects the degree course in Business Administration from among the options, in any order of preference, he/she shall sit the entrance test in English. Students who have not taken the entrance test in English may not enrol for the degree course in Business Administration.

 

Exemptions

Students admitted to the ESCP-EAP double degree courses are exempted from sitting the test, in accordance with the provisions of the relative Convention.

Language

The entrance test for the study courses held in Italian is in Italian, with the exception of some thematic questions in English. The version of the entrance test for the study course in Business Administration is entirely in English.

 

The candidate shall sit the entrance test in English if the preferences expressed include the degree course in Business Administration. Students who have not taken the entrance test in English may not enrol in the degree course in Business Administration. Sitting and passing the entrance test in English is considered proof of a language level equal to or higher than level B2 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) which is considered necessary in order to attend this master degree course.

 

Example:
A candidate who has expressed the following order of preference:

  • 1st preference: degree course in Business Administration and Control;
  • 2nd preference: degree course in Accounting Professions;
  • 3rd preference: degree course in Business Administration;

having indicated the degree course in Business Administration among his/her preferences, will be required to sit the test in English.

 

General information and syllabus

The entrance test for the master degree courses at the School of Management and Economics consists of 50 questions on specific subjects with multiple choice answers, only one of which is correct out of the four proposed.

In the Italian version of the test, a subset of 5 specific subject questions will be in English. In the English version of the test, all 50 questions will be in English.

 

The test will last 60 minutes.

 

Each candidate will be given an envelope containing the question booklet and the answer sheet.

The answers must be marked on the answer sheet by ticking the corresponding box.

The entrance test score will be determined as follows:

  • + 1.6 points for a correct answer;
  • 0 points for an omitted answer or answer annulled due to irregularities in marking the answers;
  • - 0.8 points for an incorrect answer.

 

N.B. Do not mark the answers in the question booklet, use the answer sheet provided. Only mark the answers you wish to give on the answer sheet; do not make any other mark. If you have to do calculations, you can write on the question booklet.

 

Syllabus

The syllabuses for the Italian and English versions of the test are designed to inform candidates who wish to enrol in the master degree courses at the School of Management and Economics of the topics, normally studied in the three-year degree courses in the economics-business area, which are considered to be part of the basic knowledge necessary for the studies they will undertake. The entrance test questions will focus on these topics.

In particular, the syllabus contains some fundamental topics in the following six subjects:

  • Business administration
  • Accounting
  • Business economics and management
  • Marketing
  • Business finance
  • Economics of financial intermediaries

 

Formation of the ranking list

There will be one single ranking list for all the degree courses.

 

On the day of publication, the position of the candidate in the degree courses for which he/she has expressed a preference will be indicated the personal page MyUniTO.

The indications concerning the candidates admitted to each of the degree courses will be drawn up on the basis of the ranking list (details in the paragraph "Formation of the ranking list" in these regulations) and the preferences expressed.

 

When the ranking lists are published, the personal page MyUniTO will therefore contain one of the following indications:

  • "Admitted". The candidate can register confirming the pre-enrolment on line by and no later than the deadline indicated by the Rector’s Decree (details in the ENROLMENTS paragraph in the Rector’s Decree) and punctually specified in the personal page MyUniTO.
  • "Not admitted". The candidate must wait for a place to become available in the ranking list (repechage). The status will not change if the places have been filled. Candidates should frequently check their status in the personal page MyUniTO, to ensure that they see the repechage in time.
  • "Annulled". The candidate is admitted to the course of his/her first choice and therefore the secondary choices are annulled.
  • “Rejected”. The candidate is excluded as he/she has achieved a score lower than the minimum established threshold.

 

Example:
A candidate who has expressed the following order of preference:

  • 1st preference: master degree course in Accounting Professions;
  • 2nd preference: master degree course in Business Management Marketing and Strategy;
  • 3rd preference: degree course in Business Finance and Financial Markets;

and who is "Admitted" to the ranking list for the degree course in Accounting Professions (1st preference), must necessarily enrol in said degree course and the 2nd and 3rd preference will be automatically annulled.

 

It should be remembered that a candidate who is “Not admitted” to the degree course indicated as his/her first preference will be considered for the purposes of the ranking list of the other degree courses only if he/she has indicated said degree courses as second and/or third preference.

 

For the purposes of formation of the ranking list, the overall evaluation, expressed in marks out of one hundred, will be determined by combining:

  1. the score obtained in the entrance test standardised between 0 and 80;
  2. the marks obtained in the three-year degree course for the graduate students or the weighted mean of the university credits recorded at the time of registration for the entrance test for graduating students, in both cases standardised between 0 and 20.

 

The test can also be taken by students who have not yet obtained their three-year degree but who will obtain it by 31st October 2018, on the condition that they have already recorded a minimum of 150 university credits at the time of registration for the entrance test. For students who have not yet obtained their degree, the weighted mean of the university credits recorded will be standardized between 0 and 20, in place of the degree mark.

 

In the case of graduating candidates, the ranking list will be based on the weighted mean of the credits recorded at the time of registration for the test. Under no circumstances will it be possible to correct the ranking list according to changes in the candidate’s mean due to credits recorded after the date of registration for the test or according to the degree mark obtained.

 

Failure to indicate the degree mark or the weighted mean at the time of registration for the entrance test will result in a score of 0/20. It will not be possible to amend the lack of said information after registration for the test.

 

The academic requirement (membership of the degree classes indicated in the Regulation) and the requirement concerning adequate personal preparation (score obtained in the test higher than 15/80) are both necessary for enrolment in one of the master degree courses.

In particular, candidates who have achieved a score in the test lower than 15/80 may not enrol, regardless of the availability of places in the ranking list.

 

Transfers and switchovers from other degree courses

It is possible to transfer or switch to a master degree course in the School of Management and Economics with limited number of places:

  • from another master degree course at the School of Management and Economics (internal switchover);
  • from another master degree course at the University of Turin, but not at the School of Management and Economics (switchover);
  • from another university (transfer).

 

For the internal switchover of a student enrolled in a study course at the School of Management and Economics in Turin, two cases must be distinguished:

  • switchover from a Master Degree Course LM-77 to another Master Degree Course LM-77: the student does not have to register for and sit the test. He/she shall submit a switchover application directly to the student secretarial offices starting from the date that will be indicated subsequently on the basis of the deadlines established by the University. The student will be admitted to the 2nd year of the 17/18 cohort;
  • switchover from a master degree course LM-56 or LM-83 to a master degree course LM-77: the student will be required to submit an application, sit the test and obtain an appropriate position in the ranking list. The student can be included in the 2nd year of the chosen master degree course only if he/she has achieved at least 30 university credits in the mandatory subjects of the first year of the master degree course for which he/she wishes to enrol.

For transfer or switchover to a master degree course with a limited number of places at the School of Management and Economics for the academic year 2018/2019 it is necessary:

  1. to submit an application, sit the test and obtain an appropriate position in the ranking list;
  2. enrol in the first year of the chosen master degree course.

After enrolment in the first year of the master degree course, the student can request:

  • recognition of any university credits obtained during the previous master degree course;
  • admission to the second year of the chosen master degree course. This request will be met only if the student has obtained at least 30 university credits in the mandatory subjects of the first year of the master degree course for which he/she wishes to enrol and within the limit of the available places.

Evaluation of the student’s previous university career is carried out by the degree course Studies Committee.
