It is important for us to get to know the specific background and personal motivation as well as to explain in detail the special requirements of the Master’s program. The selection interview is conducted in the form of a multimodal interview in which at least 8 of 15 points to be awarded must be achieved.
Applicants without a first degree must complete an aptitude test (written exam and case study) in addition to the selection interview.
The Master Project Management is primarily held in German. A certain proportion of the modules (currently two out of twelve) are held in English. English proficiency at level B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is required for admission to the program.
