Admission Criteria

If there is a higher number of qualified applicants, than seats in the programme, a selection is made within the group of applicants who fulfill the requirements. The selection method used aims at assessing the applicant’s suitability for studying the MBA programme, based on the applicant’s educational background and working experience.

The first step in the selection process is an assessment of the relevance of the student's educational background in relation to the programme. Points are given, where no relevance = 0 points, some relevance = 0,5 point, and high relevance = 1 point.
The second step is an assessment of the relevance of the student's working experience in relation to the programme, following the same model. No relevance = 0 points, some relevance = 0,5 point, and high relevance = 1 point.

In total, the applicant can get a maximum of 2 points. Unless all students with the same score can be admitted, the decision is made by the drawing of lots.
