You have chosen the MBA International Management Full-Time and would now like to apply? Please follow the steps below.

1.Read the requirements for enrolment for the study programme carefully.

Requirements for enrolment:

  • Completed university studies, usually at least an undergraduate degree or equivalent - degrees from foreign universities must be recognised in Germany by the Studienkolleg Konstanz (for details, see step 5)
  • Verification of two years professional experience between completion of undergraduate degree and start of MBA programme to be provided by means of employment contract, interim employer reference or confirmation of the duration of the employment relationship.
  • English language proficiency corresponding to C1 level according to the European Framework of Reference for Languages (for details, see step 5)
  • A GMAT test score of at least 550 (score 550+ or equivalent GRE score).
    Please make sure that ESB Business School of Reutlingen University is selected as a school to which your scores are sent. (GMAT Code MMB-LX-84 / GRE Code 2867)
  • Successful selection interview (for details, see step 3)

The MBA Full-Time programme is open to graduates of all disciplines. Our MBA will be particularly beneficial to non-economists. Graduates of technical or natural science fields of study such as engineers, computer scientists, medical doctors, linguists, humanities scholars, as well as lawyers, form the primary target group of the programme.

2.Complete the online application.

Complete the online application with an upload of the following documents:

  • CV
  • 1 page motivation letter
  • A copy of your undergraduate degree certificate
  • GMAT 550+/ GRE score
  • Verification of two years professional experience

By completing the application early, you allow more time for potential issues that may occur such as delays with visa processing and/or subsequent verification of documents. After submitting the application and provided you meet the requirements for enrolment, we will contact you to arrange an appointment for the selection interview.

Apply for recognition of your first degree at Studienkolleg Konstanz. The earlier, the better!

3.Participate in the selection interview.

Passing the selection interview is also a prerequisite for enrolment to the MBA Full-Time programme.

The selection interview, which lasts approximately 20 minutes, takes the form of a structured examination interview in English and is usually conducted by two persons via prearranged video conference, one of whom is a professor teaching in the MBA programme.

A proposed date for the selection interview will be sent to you by e-mail after the information in your questionnaire has been checked. If this date is not feasible for you, you will of course be offered an alternative date.

On passing the selection interview, you will receive a certificate of confirmation.
