How does the admission process work?

We wish to recruit students with the very best academic merit, potential and motivation, and welcome applications by all suitably qualified prospective students from different backgrounds. For international applicants, the admission decision is based on written documents, we usually do not hold interviews/ admission exams. The documents have to be submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs, but will be reviewed by the DAB admission committee which carefully considers each application on an individual basis. 
The DAB admission committee considers:

•   the  academic results in your undergraduates studies (i.e.transcripts of your Bachelor's degree)
•   the focus/ specialization in your undergraduates studies (i.e. did you take courses in business, economics, finance  etc.)

•   your work experience (i.e. work experience is not a requirement, but work experience in a relevant field, particularly in management, will increase your chances of admission)
•   the diversity of your skills and interests (i.e. do you have hobbys or interests that are relevant for your application?) 

•    the quality of your Statement of Purpose (500 words) where you have to explain your academic background and the specific reasons why you wish to join our MBA-program
