ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS, INTERNATIONAL MANAGMENT M.A.
Applicants to our Master programmes should be substantially motivated to engage in practically-oriented, international project work. All students are required to conduct project work independently for corporations and make use of interdisciplinary thinking within the fields of economics and law. Prospective students should possess the ability to work in an intercultural context.
Bachelor or equivalent academic degree:
- The fields of Business Administration, Economic Engineering or Information Systems generally provide the best academic background for admission into the programme.
- Other fields: Applicants having majored in a field other than those mentioned above are still welcome to apply. Their qualification will be determined under individual consideration by our admissions committee. Preparatory sessions will be held during orientation and before the beginning of the regular Master’s Curriculum. Students without a background in Business will have to make up any missing coursework by participating in the Business Refresher course that is offered during the 1st and 2nd semester.
Associate’s degree: Under special circumstances, provisional admission may be granted to an applicant holding an associate’s degree provided that substantial work experience in project management or similar fields can be proven.
The entire programme is taught in English, including all the courses offered by our partner universities participating in the Tripartite Master Programme. No other language skills are required for the programme. There are two options for being accepted into the programme: directly and indirectly via our Pre-Master's programme (more information below).
All non-native English speakers must submit proof of sufficient English language skills.
The following tests and minimum scores are required for direct acceptance into the programme:
- TOEFL-Test score of 87 (CBT 227)
- IELTS (Academic): minimum score of 6.5 (minimum of 6.0 in all skills)
- TOEIC: Listening/Reading 785, Speaking 160, Writing 150 (all 4 skills required)
- CAE (Grade A, B, or C)
- CPE (Grade A, B or C)
- Pearson English Test Academic (PTE-A): 59 points
If you don't qualify for direct acceptance, you may qualify for our Pre-Master's programme. Upon completion of the 4-week or the 6-week English language course, you may then continue on to the Master's programme. Please see here for details.
Native speakers, applicants in whose country of origin English is the official language, or applicants with a university degree from an English speaking country can be exempted upon request. Requests for such an exemption should be submitted by email and reasons should be explained in detail. Test results must be no more than 24 months old. All documents will be reviewed. In addition, verbal skills will be tested in a personal or telephone interview with a lecturer from the English programme.
Although the language proficiency levels described above are mandatory for final acceptance, we also offer conditional acceptance for applicants who must then provide their test results no later than 3 months following the commencement of their Master's programme.
