Admission Committee

The decisions of the admissions committee are based on the relevant considerations. They are final and cannot be contested, unless new documents or data are submitted that the committee did not have at its disposal during its deliberations. The decisions of the admissions committee are valid only for the semester for which the applicant has registered. Applicants who do not begin their studies in that semester must go through the registration and admissions process again.

Any case of contradiction between the above mentioned requirements and an oral conversation that took place with our representatives, the written regulations prevails the verbal conversation.

Accepted candidates are required to have knowledge of mathematics to ensure they have the quantitative tools to successfully complete their studies at the School. Students can meet the requirement based on their previous studies or based on the Math exam they took before the start of the first year of studies (otherwise they will not be able to take the required courses in “Economics for Business Administration” and “Foundations of Finance”).
