a) Check your eligibility
1. Educational background/diplomas
Applicants need to meet the following admission criteria:
- The IMMIT program is open to students with a Bachelor’s or equivalent undergraduate degree (180 ECTS) either in Management, Economics, Business Administration or in Computer Science/Information System. Students with an engineering degree can be admitted if their previous education includes IT and information systems.
- A satisfactory scholastic average, a minimum of 3.0 (B) grade-point average (7/10), in course work completed during the Bachelor’s degree.
- Students in the last year of their Bachelor's studies can also apply for admission. The Selection Committee can tentatively admit the student based on a transcript of his/her academic record and the expected date of graduation, together with an official letter from their home university stating that the student will have completed the degree in due time.
- The IMMIT program is primarily aimed at fresh Bachelor's graduates with no more than a few years work experience. Based on our experiences, the program content may be less relevant for those applicants with a substantial amount of work experience.
