Networking is an important aspect of an EMBA program – how will you guarantee this aspect will not get lost due to the Corona Crisis and the potential virtual delivery of the EMBA Programs?
Networking is a very important topic and the current situation does present some challenges. We are taking these challenges on and using this time to experiment with new formats to enhance networking in the current climate. The new situation provides also additional networking opportunities beyond the normal scope. Please, talk to our Program Managers to learn more.
I am considering applying for the upcoming intake, but I am not sure if I can afford it under the current conditions. What kind of flexibility do you provide regarding payment of the tuition fees?
The tuition fees are invoiced in four installments (one for each 6 months/semester). You only have to pay the first 6 months when you start the program. The subsequent payments will be invoiced later for as long as you remain enrolled. Thus, if for unforeseen circumstances you cannot finish the program, you are not obliged to pay the full program fee. Also, please note that even though the program takes 2 years to complete, you have 3 years time to finish Read More here
Can I submit my application virtually without coming to meet you on campus?
Yes, our recently launched new digital application platform makes the application process even smoother and easier for you. All required documents for the admission process can be conveniently uploaded electronically, which will save you lots of time and paperwork. No further certified documents are needed until the enrollment. Further documents for enrollment can also be submitted via post service.

Do I need to sit in for admission tests such as a GMAT/GRE and English and how can I do them under current public health regulations?
For our Executive MBA programs no test scores are required. Your proficiency in English and your study abilities will be assessed during a multi-stage admission process according to our submitted documents and the individual admission interview.
