How to choose the appropriate exchange destination?


Partner schools

RSM maintains a partner network of 175+ business schools and universities which are seen as some of the best in their countries and are renowned worldwide.

However not all partner schools are open for the master exchange, since some of these are only appropriate for either Bachelor and/or MBA students. For this reason, check out the Pdf file in the section Partner Schools MSc on this website and see for which schools you can apply. 

In your application, you have to list a top 3 of preferred destinations. Next to that, you will be able to mention 10 alternative destinations.

MBA level exchanges

At some schools, mostly outside Europe, RSM master students participate in MBA programmes. The reason is just because of the fact that this particular partner school does not offer a master programme similar to ours. For MBA level programmes working experience (at least 1 year) and maturity is very important.

Canvas course RSM Master Exchange 

There are 100+ master exchange destinations to choose from, but it is very important to apply for the right ones since some schools require additional language and admission grade requirements, have a different academic calendar (Austria, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Korea), differ from length in terms (tri/semester, quarter system) or have deviating requirements for certain nationalities (China). This information is mostly summarized in the partner schools’ so-called Factsheets, which are to be found in the Canvas course “RSM Master Exchange”, section “partner schools”. This canvas course is also a useful tool to find reports of former exchange students.
