We highly recommend investing time and effort in crafting thoughtful responses to the essay questions in the application.

Upon submission, pre-set reference requests are automatically sent through the application to the chosen referees. Two references are required, with one coming from your closest manager or the HR department (or a senior manager) to confirm your commitment to the program. The other reference should be from a person who knows you well in your professional capacity.

If you are self-employed or applying on an individual basis, send both reference requests to individuals familiar with your professional background.

Please note that references from relatives are not recommended.

Step 3: Tests, video assessment and a personal interview

If shortlisted based on your application, you will be invited for tests and an interview. This includes both a personality and intelligence test, as well as a video assessment to complete before the interview. During the interview, candidates will discuss their current position, situation, motivation for studying, and reflect on future plans.

Step 4: Notification of the admissions decisions

Admissions decisions are made by the admissions board, which convenes approximately six weeks after each application deadline. Applicants will receive the decision shortly thereafter. If admitted, you will also receive a written offer by us.
