What is the minimum required GPA? What is the minimum required GPA?

Applicants are expected to have obtained a GPA (Grade Point Average) that is equivalent to a 7 out of 10 in the Dutch education system (7.5 for Finance & Investments - Advanced), which is considered to be above average. Your GPA should be calculated over your entire bachelor degree. If your university has not done this, RSM will re-calculate your GPA. When an applicant submits grades from a master's programme, they will be added to the GPA calculation.

Grade point averages can be expressed differently in other education systems. Examples of acceptable GPA's can be found below. Please provide an academic transcript with a diploma supplement explaining your countries grading system in your application package if possible. 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.
