Entry Requirements

  • The basic requirement is a German final degree or an equivalent foreign degree that qualifies for a profession (e.g. Bachelor).
  • Within previous undergraduate studies, students must have acquired a minimum of 50 ECTS credits in economics and a minimum of 30 ECTS credits in quantitative methods (mathematics, statistics and econometrics).
  • Certificate of language skills in English, level: B2 CEFR or higher. Exceptions: Applicants who have a bachelor’s degree from a university where English is the official teaching language and applicants who have been taught English at school for six years or longer. 
  • Certificate of language skills in German. Exceptions: Applicants who have a bachelor’s degree from a university where German is the official teaching language.

Applicants who are not able to provide a certificate of the final degree of their undergraduate program by May 31st can still apply submitting their current level of academic performance (Transcript of Records) instead. In that case, students must have already acquired two-thirds of the credit points of their undergraduate program as a basic requirement. The Transcript of Records must provide at least 30 ECTS in economics and 20 ECTS in quantitative methods. In the selection process, the average grade of the current level of academic performance will be taken into account. A certificate of the final degree of the undergraduate program must be provided until the end of the first semester of the master program.
