Admission and Enrolling in the Master's Degree in Global Business.

The admissions process for the joint Master's degree program in Global Business Studies is very selective due to the limited number of spots available in the program. Prospective applicants are asked to complete a three-step application procedure.

The process allows us to become better acquainted with applicants on a deeper, more personal level.  In order to enroll in this academic degree program, you must meet all of the admission requirements. 

Step 1:  Apply for the Program

By submitting a conclusive and compelling application, we can learn more about you and your background. Submit your application together with the following documents and please do not forget to indicate the program you are applying for:

We will review your application and documents during the second phase of the procedure. If we still have questions or would need more detailed information, we will contact you about re-sending any missing documents. After our internal review is complete and if you fulfill the requirements for admission to the Master's degree program, we will extend an invitation for a personal interview.

Step 2: Personal Interview

The interviews will take place at the Institute of Innovation Management. If you are abroad and cannot personally attend the interview, the interview session will be conducted via Skype. The interview will be held in English and you will be asked about your motivation to complete the program as well as tell us about your personal aspirations. In addition, we will work with you to create a personal "roadmap" for the Master's degree program. We hold two rounds of interviews each year during: 

  • Winter Semester: in December
  • Summer Semester: in May (personal interviews will not be held during May 2021)
