Selection Criteria per Diploma

Selection Criteria per Diploma

The admissions criteria per diploma type is listed per region and country. Please find an overview of the diploma specific requirements here.

Prior academic performance is the best predictor of future success in the IBA programme. Therefore, your grade point average (GPA) contributes to 50% of your total score, which is used to determine your final rank.

A solid background in mathematics is important for successful participation in the IBA programme. We therefore require all of our students to prove they have attained a minimum level in mathematics. The mathematics entrance exam will be offered by RSM to eligible applicants on 19 January, 16 February and 16 March 2017.  Note that a low grade for mathematics will put you in the lowest tier of the ranking.

The IBA programme is taught completely in English. Most secondary education diploma holders will need to prove their proficiency in English by submitting the official results of either a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), Cambridge or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test.  Applicants who are required to take an English exam need to submit the results no later than 1 April.
