Kandidatprogram Communication Management

Study Communication Management at Cattolica

The undergraduate degree in Communication Management (COMMA) is a unique programme designed for students interested in learning about communication in the fields of fashion and food, while understanding what role sustainability plays in these sectors, the principles and practice of sustainable development in the context of urban cultures, as well as why the number of food and fashion bloggers is growing.

Combining sociology and media studies, psychology and economics, history and political science, together with law, the programme provides a coherent interdisciplinary curriculum that allows students to develop their understanding of how communication works in the creative industries and in particular in fashion and food.

Delivery mode

Our hope and intention for 2021/22 intake are to entirely restore in-person teaching, while respecting any health and safety requirements set by national and local competent authorities. 

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, should students not be able to attend classes in person, a hybrid format of in-person and on-line will be guaranteed to enable attendance from home, while guaranteeing full access to all learning opportunities and resources.

Applications for academic year 2021/2022 are now closed. Updates about applications for academic year 2022/2023 will be posted on Università Cattolica website starting from September 2021. You may also express your interest by contacting us.

Admission requirements

This curriculum requires entry students to demonstrate interdisciplinary capacity and a genuine passion for cultural diversity, media and the worlds of fashion and food.

All must submit: 

  • Their complete high school transcript (see application procedure on our website);
  • Motivation essay (see our website for instructions)

Applications will be ranked by a variety of academic and non-academic factors, the primary of which are high school performance and the motivation essay.

Candidates whose GPA is 75% or above (31 points for IB Diploma curriculum) will be given priority consideration for admission into the programme as long as places are available.

Candidates whose GPA is below 75% are still encouraged to apply, their profiles will be evaluated case-by-case by a dedicated commission as long as places are available. 

Candidates following the A-level curriculum will be evaluated by predicted grades for each subject choice; there are no specific subject requirements.

Secondary School Diploma Requirements

The following requirements are based on the guidelines for admission published every year by the Italian Ministry for Education.

All candidates must:

  • complete high school studies and hold their Secondary School Diploma before August 30, 2021
  • hold a high school qualification conferred after a minimum of 12 years of previous global schooling and achieved after at least 2 years of attendance within the same national education system.

Qualifications obtained after 11 or 10 years of global schooling do not allow access to Italian universities, unless candidates satisfy one of the following additional conditions:

  1. They attended one (in case of 11 years) or two (in case of 10 years) years of university studies and took all the exams included in the relevant study plan. No transfer of credits can be requested for the university studies.
  2. They can provide evidence that they attended a pre-school year (this usually applies to some Latin American countries), which can be taken into consideration only if its attendance was compulsory, and its syllabus included development of reading and writing skills in the local language. Its validity must be certified by the relevant Italian Embassy.
  3. They successfully completed a Foundation Course from an Italian University. Foundations courses from non-Italian universities are not automatically accepted and their suitability as diploma integration will be evaluated case by case. 

Proof of English Proficiency

Candidates need to upload a recognized English language certificate to the online application. Students who apply to degree courses taught in English satisfy the language requirement if they provide one of the following certificates, issued starting from January 1, 2019:
