How to apply

Step 1 - Online Application

The admissions process starts upon submission of the online application along with the relevant documents

At this stage, the following documents will be requested:

  1. Passport photo
  2. Copy of ID card
  3. Curriculum Vitae (in English)
  4. Grade transcript with full list course list and grades

  11. Additional Application Form (for Double Degree candidates only)

Confirmation of enrolment will be subject to presentation of an Official Graduation Certificate within the first month of classes.

Step 2 - Interview

Candidates may have to attend a Skype interview with either alumni or faculty designed to examine the information provided in the application and evaluate the applicant’s eligibility and suitability for the program.

Step 3 - Decision

Following the application review, the Admissions Committee will make its final decision based on all information available. Selection decisions will be taken in three rounds/periods: Early March, early April and early May (for students applying until end of February, end of March and end of April, respectively). The number of available slots will therefore decrease in each period of analysis.

The decision will be communicated by email in early March, early April and early May (for students applying until end of February, end of March and end of April, respectively). Candidates are responsible for checking their email account for school messages (including the spam or junk folders). In the event of no contact from the school, candidates should email or call the Admissions and Development Office. When accepted candidates do not confirm their commitment to be in the program, these slots will be considered vacant for the next selection round.

Step 4 - Enrollment

Admitted candidates will have to pay a €1 000 non-refundable enrolment fee, to be deducted from the total tuition fee. No exceptions or late payments will be accepted.

Enrolment in the Double Degree and CEMS MIM programs becomes effective after payment of an additional €1 500 non-refundable fee, to be deducted from the total tuition fee.

NB. Admitted students can defer for up to one semester without having to reapply. However, they must pay the enrolment fee to guarantee their place, and inform the school no later than one month prior to the beginning of term. Non-respect of this deadline or an unsuccessful request to defer will require submission of a new application.
