Employment statistics (Almalaurea)

Admission into the Bachelor's degree programme in Public Sector and Healthcare Management is conditional upon earning a secondary-school diploma, or other equivalent foreign diploma. Students must also have a skill set and knowledge base allowing them to successfully follow the study programme. More specifically, a basic knowledge in the area of language and communication, as well as logic and mathematics, is required. 
In order to safeguard educational quality standards in relation to available resources, pursuant to art. 2 of Law 264/1999, enrolment in the degree programme is capped to 120 students, plus a quota of non-EU students residing abroad.

Admission to the programme is subject to a mandatory online test delivered by CISIA (Interuniversity Consortium for Integrated Access Systems): TOLC-E. Two admission sessions will be held – one in the Spring for 60 places, of which 30 reserved for student workers with a secondary-school diploma and proven professional experience in a field consistent with the study programme; one in the Summer for 60 places, of which 20 reserved for student workers, and any remaining places from the Spring session. 
For the purposes of the merit ranking, the TOLC-E test result will weigh 75%; the average grade in Italian, mathematics, history and English as of the end of the fourth year of secondary school, or the school-leaving grade, will weigh 25%. The test procedures will be set forth in the call for applications.

Skills assessment

Students who fell short of the threshold set out in the call for applications for the language/communication and the mathematics/logic sections of the test will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA) within Year I of the programme, as set out on the University portal in the Study area of the Faculty of Political, Economic and Social Sciences. Students who do not fulfil these requirements within the deadline must enrol in the following academic year as students repeating Year I, and will not be able to take any exams for years following Year I. For student workers, the educational background, and any waiver from additional learning requirements, will be assessed by a special commission of instructors appointed by the Academic Board, based on professional experience, as specified in the call for applications.

In order to take the English for Management exam required by the study plan, students must be proficient in English at a B1 level under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). English-language proficiency may be certified as follows:

  • through a language certification, earned within three years prior to the date of submission, at a B1 level or higher (for the list of language certifications recognised by the University, please review: https://www.unimi.it/it/studiare/competenze-linguistiche/placement-test-test-di-ingresso-e-corsi-di-inglese). The certificate must be uploaded at enrolment; 
  • through a Placement Test, administered by SLAM during Year I, from October to December. Should a student fail the test, he/she must take the course provided by SLAM.

The Placement Test is mandatory for all students who fail to submit a valid certificate.
Those who do not take the Placement Test by December, or who fail to pass the final exam for the course within six attempts, must obtain an outside (paid) certification by the programme year contemplated for their exam in English.

The three-year degree course in Public Management and Healthcare offers the opportunity to carry out study periods at European universities, where students who join the Erasmus+ Programme will be able to undertake a learning experience with the recognition of the activity abroad as part of their academic career. As part of the Erasmus+ Programme, exchange agreements are in place with partner institutions in Spain (University of Oviedo, University of Salamanca, University Jaume I de Castellón, Valencia, University of La Coruña), France (Université Catholique, Lille), Germany (Fachhochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung Nordrhein - Westfalen), Portugal (University of Coimbra), Croatia (University of Zagreb, University of Rijeka), Poland (University of Katowice, University of Gdansk, University of Lodz). The courses offered by international partners cover the main subjects and disciplines of Public Management and Healthcare. The student's choice of exams to be taken abroad is made before departure together with the Erasmus+ Programme Coordinator. Credits earned abroad are officially recognized on returning to Italy and then included in the individual study plan.
