Admission and enrollment to the Master's Degree in Global Business.

In the Joint Master's degree program Global Business Studies every partner university has limited places available for the international mobility period and we have to select our students really carefully. Due to this you have to run through a three step application procedure.

This process is designed to help us getting to know each other on a more detailed and personal level. Please note that in order to enroll in this degree program, you have to meet all admission requirements. 

Step 1:  Application for the program

In a first step we want to get an impression of you and your background by introducing yourself through a convincing application form. Please submit your application and following documents and do not forget to tell us which tracks you prioritize:

In a second step we will go through your application documents. In case something is still unclear or has to be specified even further we will approach you to resend the missing documents. After our internal review is completed and you fulfill the requirements for our Master's degree program we are pleased to invite you to a personal interview.
