Is my GPA sufficient for admission?

Grade point averages can be expressed differently in other education systems. Indications of acceptable GPA's from universities outside The Netherlands can be found below. As a rule of thumb, if you are considered to have an above average GPA in your home country, it is likely that RSM will consider your GPA to be sufficient.

Please provide an academic transcript with a diploma supplement explaining your countries grading system in your application package if possible.
