Bachelor in Management & Technology
All international applicants with international university entrance qualifications (e.g. secondary level education qualifications) must also apply via uni-assist (you can have your documents reviewed by uni-assist at any time throughout the year). Uni-assist will make a preliminary evaluation on whether you meet the entry requirements for the Bachelor program at TUM. Please note that the uni-assist application needs to be completed before the end of the application period, however, the document that uni-assist will provide you with (VPD), can be handed in later, even after the application period has ended.
If you are applying with an IB Diploma further information can be found here.
We follow a two-step process to ensure that we select most qualified and suitable applicants for the program. Further information about the admission process is explained below under Step 4: Take part in the aptitude assessment process.

We follow a two-stage assessment procedure to be able to select the best possible candidates for the Bachelor in Management and Technology:
Applicants with a German Abitur:
When reviewing your application we will take both your final Abitur grade into account, as well as your three individual half-year grades (“Halbjahresnoten”) in German or English, Mathematics and in any Advanced Natural Science subject (Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Informatics or Technology).
Applicants who do not have any grades in one or more of those subjects will be invited for an interview directly.
Applicants with an international university entrance qualification:
When reviewing your application we will take your final grade and the grades you received in your last two years of secondary school in the subjects German or English, Mathematics and an Advanced Natural Science into account.
If we cannot assess your individual grades in the above-mentioned subjects, we will base our assessment on the final grade (GPA) of your university entrance qualification and your performance in the admission interview. Applicants who do not have any grades in one or more of those subjects will be invited for an interview directly.
Stage 2: Admission Interview
Should you be denied a direct admission, you still get the chance to prove yourself in the admission interview.
The interview dates for Campus Munich will be published before the application period starts.
You will receive an official invitation with a specific date for you around 2 weeks before the interview. Please note that the Admission Team of the TUM School of Management cannot make any estimate regarding which date will be assigned to you yet.
You will receive the invitation, as well as additional information about the interview process, via e-mail. Please check your e-mail and spam folder regularly.
In case you apply to Campus Munich and Campus Heilbronn you will only be invited to one interview and the result is valid for both campuses.
The outcome of our assessment of your application will show up in your TUMonline account. Once you received admission, you will be able to accept your spot and enroll to TUM. This process is carried out by the TUM Center for Study and Teaching (TUM CST) – Admissions and Enrollment Office. Please visit this website for information on how to proceed with your enrollment.
