Master entrance requirements

Applicants need a bachelor’s or similar degree (at least six semesters) in economics from a German or foreign higher education institution.

At least 19 credit points obtained during the bachelor’s program must come from subjects related to quantitative methodologies (mathematics, statistics, empirical methodologies, operations research, game theory).

In case of doubt, the examination committee will decide whether the applicant can be admitted to the program.

We expect applicants to have a very good active and passive knowledge of English that enables them to read specialist literature and participate in courses taught in English (no proof required). Unless stated differently in the examination regulations, students will not be required to hand in coursework written in English, nor do they have to write exams in English.

Applicants who have obtained their degree or higher education entrance qualification at an institution where classes were not taught in German must take the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang ausländischer Studienbewerber (German Language Proficiency Examination for Admission to Higher Education for Foreign Applicants), also known as the DSH.
