Global MBA Admissions Requirements
The admission process starts by the evaluation of your application in order to validate the conditions of eligibility. Applicants usually have several conversations/meetings with the admission manager to discuss their professional and personal project before they start the official selection process.

Selected applicants will then be invited to an admission day: an interview in front of a jury of admission composed of a member of the faculty and a senior administrative member, this interview will be preceded by an in-situ test if the candidate has chosen the Business Administration Test.

Applicants will be notified of their results within a week.

NB1: Applicants are invited to send us two recommendation letters. Please find here the model to download.
NB2: GMAT or Global MBA Business Admissions Test (the BAT test tailored specifically to the seniority and global nature of the applicant pool of our MBA. It consists of an MCQ Aptitude Test – problem solving, communication, numerical and factual data management, logical thinking – and a Case Presentation, developed to test the career maturity and business "acumen" of candidates.)
