Università Bocconi, in compliance with Italian current regulations, issues certifications with duty stamp “marca da bollo”. The certifications issued by public administration offices as regards status and personal information are valid and can be used only in relations between private parties. In relations with the public administration and public services managers, certifications and official deeds (notarial deeds) are always substituted by self-declarations. The Guide to the University of the current academic year contains all detailed information.

Starting on 5 June 2018, the following changes will occur regarding certificates issued by Bocconi University:

  • In most cases, certificates will be issued on a new model of white letterhead paper and with a digital tag;
  • They will be available in yoU@B in electronic format (PDF),trough a link*, depending on their use.

To decode digital tags, click here.

The methods for requesting certifications may vary according to the applicant's profile.

-Are you enrolled in a degree program? Access your yoU@B Diary and select, from the menu, CERTIFICATIONS>cert@B in order to forward your request. Carefully check the Guide to the University (chapter CERTIFICATIONS, SELF-DECLARATIONS AND DIPLOMA SUPPLEMENTS) for all detailed information.

-Are you a graduate? Access your yoU@B Diary and select, from the menu, CERTIFICATIONS>cert@B in order to forward your request. We remind you that in order to access the yoU@B Diary you must use your Student ID number* and the password you used to access the University Services.*(if your Student ID number is structured into 6 numbers only, you must digit a 0 before it).

-Are you a graduate BUT you never accessed the Diary or you forgot your password? click on Password Recovery function (available in the yoU@B login page) in order to create a password and access the yoU@B Diary. If you need to recover the Student ID number too, please before click on Student ID Recovery and later on Password Recovery.

-Are you a student who withdrew from studies or former visiting student (single courses more than 18 months ago) or you are disqualified student?  Follow the instructions available on the website and use the buycert@B  procedure to make the request.

-Are you a Company, Organization, Association etc and you have to confirm/verify the academic qualification of a Bocconi graduate? You must send a request to conferme.titoli@unibocconi.it. (Companies must attach the authorization signed in original by the candidate for the processing of his/her personal data). If you are a graduate, please, send your request via B in Touch.

 *IMPORTANT: the link for the download will be active for a limitate period which will be notified, via yoU@B and via Bocconi account email, when the certificate is ready (4 working days after the request).

Remember that in dealing with the Public Administration offices and with private firms managing public services, certifications must always be substituted by SELF-DECLARATIONS, not subject to a stamp duty ‘imposta di bollo’. To help you, self-declaration samples have been made available by Università Bocconi. Such documents can be printed out from the reserved area by accessing the yoU@B Diary>Certificates>Printable documents.
