Admission criteria

The application period for the academic year 2019-2020 starts on 10 October 2018. Until then the information on this page is subject to change without prior notice.

Important characteristics of the IBA programme are its international dimension and high performing students.

Admission to the IBA programme is therefore based on:

  1. your academic performance as indicated by your grade point average - 75%
  2. your extracurricular activities, illustrated by your curriculum vitae  OR in your answer to our motivation question- 25%

Prior academic performance is the best predictor of future success in the IBA programme. Therefore, your grade point average (GPA) contributes to 75% of your final score, which is used to determine your rank.

  • The admissions criteria for the entry year 2019 are currently being reviewed and may be subject to change. All admissions related information for 2019 will be updated by the end of September. 

    Please consult the admissions requirements per diploma, and the minimum levels and score requirements for mathematics and the English language proficiency

  • Many students applying for the IBA programme have never had to make a CV before and are not sure where to start. To help you get started and guide you through the process, we have created the document “Tips for writing a good CV” in collaboration with RSM’s Career Services Office. The overall score for your extra curricular activities (CV) will contribute to 25% of your final score, which will be used to determine your rank.
