Application Procedure

The admissions process is highly selective and strives to build a diverse and ambitious class. Applications are processed on a rolling basis through our customised online application system. Since the number of places available in each programme is limited, we strongly recommend applying early. To qualify for our Masters programmes, you must meet two requirements:

  1. Hold a university degree You must hold a 4-year degree (minimum 240 ECTS credits) from a recognised academic institution. A 3-year university degree is also accepted if you have at least one year of relevant work experience or an additional 1-year degree (minimum 60 ECTS credits). In some cases a GMAT may be required as well. Note that you do not have to wait for your final examination results to apply.
  2. Pass the admissions process You can apply for admission in one of two equivalent ways: an on-campus assessment or a distance assessment.
