Students will be selected jointly each year for the 2-year programme by the EMABG selection committee during the annual meeting approx. two weeks after the application deadline. All complete applications that meet the admission criteria will be considered in the student selection. The eligible applications will be evaluated according to four selection criteria:
- Academic excellence including English language skills (final score share 40%)
- Motivation letter (final score share 25%)
- Work experience/professional qualifications/CV (final score share 25%)
- Recommendation letters (final score share 10%).
Each application is evaluated according to the selection criteria, with scoring in the range of 1 (worst) to 10 (best). The partial scores are weighted based on the final score shares and summed up. Based on these evaluations a provisional ranking is produced. Whenever two or more applicants have the same score, the one with higher academic excellence will be placed first. The selection procedure will aim to maintain geographical and gender balance and will apply equal-opportunity principles.
