How to Apply

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent from a recognized university or college*
  • Proof of English language proficiency: please have a look at our different options here

*The bachelor’s degree must comprise at least 180 ECTS for the standard track or 210 ECTS for the fast track. Applicants for the fast track must have done at least one academic term abroad during their previous university study. Equally possible is to prove an internship abroad, which was officially part of the Bachelor's degree program. We require a degree in business or economics, but will consider other fields such as industrial engineering, business informatics, and mathematics if your bachelor's degree contains a sufficient number of courses (at least four) in business administration or economics.

A passing grade on the GMAT or TM WISO test is not an admission requirement, however, the Admissions Committee will consider test scores positively.

The multicultural, dynamic learning environment at KLU has impressed me from the very first week of my master's program. As a student here, one quickly feels part of a big, international family that cherishes cooperation as one of its cornerstones. After spending 7 years focusing solely on my professional endeavours, such a welcoming atmosphere has definitely made the difference in ensuring a successful re-entry to the academic life.
