How to Apply

Dear Applicants,

Thank you very much for your patience so far!

Unfortunately, due to the extremely large number of applications we have received this year, the review process is taking a lot longer than usual.

We are doing everything we can so as to be able to announce individual results as soon as possible. We aim to be able to announce all results (both acceptances and rejections) within the next three weeks. However, please not that interviews will be taking place throughout August.

We would kindly ask you not to contact us with questions relating to the status of individual applications.



Important note: if you have any questions regarding the application procedure, please take a look at the FAQ´s first.

To apply, please complete the application form online. Make sure you select “Management” as course of study. Click here for instructions.

Once you have completed the online application form, you will receive a list of the additional documents that you will have to send in to the Registrar’s Office, together with a print-out of your completed application form.

Additionally, applicants must submit evidence of proficiency in English during the application period. Later submissions will not be accepted.


Assessment Procedure

To help us select the very best applicants, we follow a two-stage assessment procedure.

In Stage 1 of the assessment procedure, the Eligibility Commission decides on the basis of the transcript of records and where applicable the additional non-mandatory criteria to admit an applicant to the program. Candidates whose eligibility is still in doubt after this stage will be invited for an interview.

International Experience (studies abroad, internships abroad, summer/winter schools abroad etc. but no language courses) of at least 60 consecutive calendar days or at least 3 ECTS for summer/winter schools can be taken into account. 

You get up to 15 points for your performance in your first degree. This can be demonstrated by your grade point average or a ranking certificate (starting from the best 50% of your class/year).


Curriculum Analysis

After the online application process applicants will be asked to fill out a curriculum analysis that according to the examination and study regulations is used to assess your eligibility and aptitude. Instructions for filling out the forms can be found here.

Before submitting the form online, please verify, if all your entries are correct and complete. Print the pdf-form after submission and add it to your printed TUMonline application forms and post them altogether.
