Selection Guidelines

The selection procedure consists of the following phases:

1. Selection procedure

The selection procedure consists of two phases.

Phase 1

Application by 15 March: The Admission Office will review the complete applications of the candidates. In this phase, all complete applications will be assessed for minimum requirements. Candidates who rank the highest based on their academic merits will be invited for a selection interview (online). Candidates who do not pass this initial selection round will be notified in writing within three weeks following the application deadline. Applicants who meet the minimum requirements but are not selected for the interview round, will be offered admissions to the 12-month MSc Finance & Investments programme.

Phase 2

Selection interviews on the 2nd week of April: The interviews will conducted using an Online interview tool. You will receive a set of questions and you will be asked to record your answers which are saved in the online environment. 

Using an online tool gives you the flexibility to join the selection process form anywhere in the world, as long as you have a working internet connection and a device with a camera and a microphone (computer, tablet or phone). 

2. Results of selection procedure

Students will be notified of the outcome of the selection procedure as soon as possible after the selection interviews have taken place in April. A maximum of 40 students will be selected for the programme and receive a (conditional) offer of admission. Applicants who participated in the interview but did not make the final selection will be offered admission to our Finance & Investments programme (places will be reserved in case the programme is already full).

3. Accepting the offer of admission
