Program Description:

Bocconi - Seinne

The Università Bocconi -Yale College Economics Exchange Program gives Yale undergraduate Economics majors the opportunity to spend a semester or a full year at Bocconi, while a small number of Bocconi graduate students will spend a year at Yale.
Università Bocconi was established in Milan in 1902. Private universities are rare in Italy, but Bocconi has developed a reputation of the highest caliber, and, Bocconi has stood since its inception for liberalism, pluralism, and social and economic progress. Courses at Bocconi are taught both in English and Italian, and students with advanced Italian may choose to take all or some of their courses in Italian.

Eligibility Requirements
This program is open to Yale undergraduate economics majors only.  Knowledge of Italian is not required.  Students must be juniors at time of enrollment.  Applicants must speak with the DUS of Economics prior to applying for this program. 

Academic Program
To earn 4 general Yale credits, students must enroll in five Bocconi courses for a total of 30 ECTS credits and receive the Italian grade of 21 in all courses.  Yale cannot grant credit for courses in disciplines (such as businees or law) that do not exist here at the undergrdaite level.  Credit toward the Economics major is awarded at the discretion of the DUS.  Please see the Economics department's website for guidance on outside credit toward the major.  Students will select their Bocconi courses in consultation with the DUS of Economics.  For a full list of courses at Bocconi offered in English, see the Bocconi website.

Bocconi International Student Desk
The Bocconi International Student Desk (ISD) is the office charged with providing support to study abroad students.  Please review their website for information about the academic calendar, course offerings, housing options, and more: http://www.unibocconi.eu/wps/wcm/connect/Bocconi/SitoPubblico_EN/Navigation+Tree/Home/Services/International+Relations/International+Students/International+Student+Desk/
Tuition Fees
If you are offered admission to study abroad at Bocconi University, you will not pay Yale tuition costs.  Because Bocconi is an exchange program, you will be billed by Yale for the Bocconi tuition.  The fee inlcudes tuition and HTH Medical insurance.  You are responsible for selecting and paying for your own housing (Bocconi provides residence hall housing for exchange students), and covering other expenses such as food, flight, books, personal expenses etc. 

HTH Medical Insurance
Yale provides Bocconi study abroad students with an HTH Medical insurance policy for the duration of their study abroad program. 
Italian Language Crash Course
Yale students are required to take the non-credit, 2-week intensive Italian Language Crash course offered at the start of the semester.  Yale will pay for enrollment in this course.  If students do not complete this course, they will be required to reimburse Yale for the enrollment fee.  Students are offered the option to take the Italian Language Follow-up course.  If you choose to take this, Yale will pay for your enrollment.  To learn more about the language courses, please visit: http://www.unibocconi.eu/wps/wcm/connect/Bocconi/SitoPubblico_EN/Navigation+Tree/Home/Services/International+Relations/International+Students/International+Student+Desk/During+Your+Stay/Italian+Language+Courses/
