You will also need a solid grounding in mathematics, statistics and English as well as good results obtained in your bachelor programme. For the IM / CEMS programme, additional language requirements apply. You will be assessed on the basis of a dossier containing your academic background, grade point average (GPA), motivation and relevant test scores such as GMAT and/or TOEFL / IELTS.
