Do I have to write a motivation letter?

No. As part of the selection process for the IBA programme we ask our applicants to illustrate their drive and suitability for the programme by either uploading their CV OR answering the motivation question "What attracts you to an international business administration programme?It is not possible to choose both, so which one should you choose? To give you some guidance in making your choice, we have created a document to explain both options in more detail and to give you some tips. CV (resume) vs Motivation - How do I choose?

Next to either CV or motivation, RSM also asks applicants to reflect on their suitability for the programme by answering three "reflection" questions. Answers to these questions have no impact on the ranking but are purely meant for self reflection. Your CV or motivation and the reflection questions must be written in English.
