Thesis and graduation


Check the didactic calendar on the School of Management and Economics' website to know the graduation sessions (in Italian).


The final examination requires writing an original dissertation to be presented and discussed in front of an ad hoc Graduation Committee, composed by at least seven faculty.

The thesis is elaborated by the student under the supervision of a faculty member, written in English on a topic agreed with the supervisor. The preparation of the thesis can be part of an internship or can be carried out during a period of study abroad, within international agreements with other universities.

The degree thesis consists of an original paper, which requires a few months of exclusive work. Students are encouraged to contact well in advance (at least six months before the period in which they intend to graduate) the teacher they wish to ask for the supervision of their thesis.

The final assessment of the candidate is based upon the following elements: originality of the results, mastering of the subject, mathematical rigour of the thesis and of the presentation, independence shown in carrying out the research, ability of speaking in public and of setting the topic within the appropriate literature.

You can find on the UniTO website the front page and all information about the print of the thesis.

Thesis defense

On the day of the final examination, the student illustrates and defends the thesis orally in front of the Graduation Committee. The Committee's questions are usually postponed to the end of the presentation. The time allocated to each candidate's presentation is 15 minutes.

It is also recommended to hand out to the Committee printed copies of the presentation (no specific format required).


Final grade mark

The final graduation mark (in 110ths) will take into account both the student's study career and the final discussion of the thesis. The starting value of the final graduation mark is obtained by summing the weighted average of the exam's evaluations (converted in 110ths).

The Graduation Committee can additionally assign a maximum of 8 points for the discussion. If the quality of the work is considered excellent, with a unanimous vote of the Graduation Committee, the maximum is increased to 12 points. The student who has achieved a score of 110/110, can be awarded the summa cum laude. In order to obtain more than 8 points a co-supervisor should also be appointed.

The student needs to log into her/his MyUnito with the student credentials and follow the instructions to submit the application.

General instructions for the submission are available on the Unito website.

See tab Thesis submission deadlines for further details.

The University has activated the "Tesi online" service which allows you to quickly and easily deliver your thesis online.

You can access the service and consult all the information useful to upload the thesis through the dedicated section on the University website.
