Admission decision

The Examination Board reviews each individual application and determines whether the level and content of the bachelor degree are equivalent to that of our bachelor’s degree Economics and Business Economics and whether all admission and application criteria as described on this website are met. Should your previous education not be sufficient for admission to a master’s degree programme the Examination Board will always review your application for possible admittance for a Pre-master programme instead.
