About this program
Master of Science in Management
The Master of Science in Management is offered by the Faculty of Economics of the Università della Svizzera italiana situated in Lugano - Switzerland. This full-time study programme comprises 120 ECTS spread over 4 semesters (usual duration 2 years) and is entirely offered in English.
The MSc in Management has been designed to provide graduates, from a wide variety of backgrounds, with the necessary skills and tools for understanding modern management concepts. It creates the best possible conditions for a successful career in business from start-ups to multinational companies.
The MSc in Management programme introduced a new track system. Students have the possibility to specialize in their studies. They can choose one of three different specialization tracks:
- Strategy and Entrepreneurship
- Organization and Human Resources Management
- Socially Responsible Management
Each track consists of 18 ECTS, offered in six 3 ECTS courses in the second and third Semesters.
Students do not have to specialize, though. Thus, if they want, they can still follow the previous, general Master programme. The completion of each specialization track will result in a “concentration” reported on the final transcript. The specialization tracks represent highly important areas in the modern business world and thus give the students the opportunity to develop particular expertise in these fields to develop a clearer profile upon entering the job market.
The formal requirement for admission to the Master's degree in Management is the completion of a Bachelor's degree from a recognised academic institution.
Candidates with a Bachelor's degree from a recognised University of Applied Sciences may be admitted with 30-60 additional ECTS to be earned during or before the beginning of the programme, with Bachelor or Master courses according to a study program defined by the scientific director. Admissions will be treated on a case by case basis.
The places offered are limited, therefore the selection can be affected on the basis of the academic results.
Admission to English-language graduate-level (Master) programmes at USI requires a good command, or advanced knowledge, of the English idiom. Non-English native speakers applying for the Master, or whose previous degree was obtained in another language than English, are required to provide an internationally acknowledged language certificate equal to the B2 level (IELTS 5.5) for enrollment in A.Y 2023/2024 and B2+ level (IELTS 6.5) for enrollment in A.Y 2024/2025, as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for language learning (CEFR), or equivalent (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, etc.).
A complete list of the accepted English language certificate is available in the Section Admission requirements on the website.
