Admission requirements

  • Degree and management experience
    You should have a minimum of ten years substantial work experience, of which at least three years of management experience. That also means you should be currently employed or self-employed. You are also required to hold a bachelor’s degree. * 
    You are expected to provide 2 letters of recommendation. Finally, you should provide evidence of excellent command of the English language (e.g. Proficiency or TOEFL or IELTS or a bachelor's degree from a university where all courses were taught in English). In case the aforementioned do not exist, a personal interview will judge the level of command. 

    Past accomplishments
    How do we assess your potential for leadership? We look for clear evidence of achievement and progression. You should demonstrate a record of successful leadership which includes pursuit of a goal, motivating people to achieve this goal, the articulation of common purpose. We also assess the communication and interpersonal skills which are crucial to successful leadership.

    Academic curiosity
    While success is important, how you have succeeded is no less important. Our EMBA students should have developed themselves but also helped others develop. Successful applicants are reflective, thoughtful leaders who are intrigued by new knowledge as a means to make a difference in their organization.

    Exceptional cases, where no bachelor's degree exists, but is complimented by substantial senior management experience and professional achievements, will be seriously considered.
