To be considered as a qualified candidate for admission to this master professional graduate study and top-ranked executive education program, we expect you to meet the following requirements:

As a minimum, you are required to hold a higher educational degree equivalent to a Bachelor’s. That would be any undergraduate professional or university study program in the field of social, natural or technical sciences worth at least 180 or more ECTS credits.

Transfer of students who were enrolled in other MBA, professional or university graduate study programs will be a viable option in accordance with the legal requirements and ECTS credit system. Differential exams may apply.

Admission of mature and experienced candidates who do not meet the above minimum education requirement is an option under exceptional conditions. Please inquire about this or any other option with our Head of Admissions.

We welcome one letter of recommendation to gain a more complete understanding of your professional performance. Your recommender should be someone who may comment meaningfully on this. Your current or recent direct manager is preferred.

Therefore, it is important that you are able to prove and demonstrate a solid and incontestable understanding and command of spoken and written English language. You will be expected to reveal your language proficiency during an interview.
