  • How to apply for a master’s programme




    For our master’s programmes, you apply directly to the Faculty of Business and Economics. During the application periods, we activate an online application form on the websites of the individual degree programmes.


    Our master’s programmes are subject to limited admission and require German language skills. Only for the Master of Science in Development Economics no knowledge of German is required (only knowledge of English). Furthermore, you can study the Master of Arts in History of Global Markets in both German and English.



    In general, the application deadlines for our master’s programmes are:



    • 1 April to 15 May of a year (start of studies in the winter semester (October))

    • 1 October to 15 November of a year (start of studies in the summer semester (April))



    Exceptions:


    The Master of Science in Applied Statistics and the Master of Science in Management only start in the winter semester. You can therefore only apply for these programmes from 1 April to 15 May each year.



    The Master of Science in Development Economics also always begins in the winter semester. The following application deadlines apply to this programme:



    • Application period for citizens from the EU/EEA (European Economic Area) OR applicants with a bachelor’s degree from an EU/EEA country beginning in the winter semester: 1 April to 15 May of the same calendar year

    • Application period for citizens from non-EU/non-EEA (European Economic Area) countries AND a bachelor’s degree from outside an EU/EEA country beginning in the winter semester: 1 October to 15 November of the previous calendar year


    The admission requirements also differ for each master’s programme. Detailed information on the selection procedure, application documents to be submitted and the right contact persons can be found on the websites of the individual degree programmes under "Application".
