Management of organization and labour (MOL)
In keeping with the learning objectives of its class, the degree programme aims to train students in human resources management and development within profit and non-profit organizations, as well as in the design, implementation and management of labour and employment policies within trade associations and unions.
Key features of the degree programme:
a) developing skills and working on the issues of HR management, development, and regulation, which is a central theme in today's economies and societies;
b) a strong interdisciplinary approach to HR issues;
c) a wide range of disciplinary approaches, encompassing economy, organization, law, sociology, IT, politics, psychology, language, history. HR issues will be investigated from multiple angles in a rigorous, balanced, exhaustive manner, as far as possible within a Bachelor's programme.
While Year I is dedicated to basic courses, Year II covers more specific subjects. Year III offers two very different curricula with pre-professional courses, which proved successful under the previous ORU and LAM degree programmes in the same class. The programme structure allows for strong educational synergies in the first two years, with a focus on pre-professional courses in the third year. The first curriculum, Human Resources Management, provides the skills required for staff administration and industrial relations within corporations. The second curriculum, Labour Consultancy, provides the skills required to practice as a labour consultant, also based on specific agreements with the Italian National Association of Labour Consultants.
Admission into the degree programme 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, history and current affairs, logic and mathematics, is required. Candidates are likewise required to prove English language proficiency at a B1 level (or higher) under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). 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 210 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. The candidate's educational background will be assessed through the admission test. Applicants must achieve the minimum scores set forth in the call for applications for the three areas of the TOLC-E test.
Two admission sessions will be held – one in the Spring for 125 places, and one in the Summer for 85 places, and any remaining places from the Spring session.
The test procedures will be set forth in the call for applications.
Applicants will be selected through:
a) a test that will assess their language and communication skills, as well as their logical and mathematical skills;
b) a review of their school achievements, based on the arithmetic mean of their grades in the penultimate year of secondary school (Spring session) or their school-living grade (Summer session).
For the purpose of the final merit ranking, the test result will weigh 75%, and school achievements will weigh 25%.
Students who fall short of the threshold set for written comprehension and logical and mathematical skills will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA), by attending courses or workshops, including online, or reading supplementary study materials. The OFA shall be satisfied and assessed within Year I of the programme. For information on how to fulfil the OFA, please refer to the University portal, Study area of the Faculty of Political, Economic and Social Sciences. Students who do not fulfil these requirements within the deadline will not be able to take any exams for years following Year I.
English language proficiency is assessed through a special test, whose outcome does not count towards the admission ranking. Students with an English language proficiency lower than B1 will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA).
English proficiency at B1 level is a prerequisite for the English for Communication in Management exam. Students who do not pass the English language OFA exam may sit for it again.
Students holding a valid English language certification, earned within three years prior to the date of submission, may be waived from the English admission test, as well as students who graduated from a secondary school using English as the main language of instruction.
English language OFA
In order to take the English language 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.
Attendance is strongly recommended. However, learning support will be provided to students who cannot attend courses for serious reasons.
