Admission Process

The Admissions Committee reviews applications on a rolling basis throughout the year. Early applications are recommended and appreciated.

Until we can welcome you as an MBA student in Pforzheim, this is our three-phase application process:

To use the Online Application System you will need internet access, as well as an email address that you can access regularly.

Complete and submit your online application. Documents needed as PDF are your University transcript and certificate, your CV, GMAT and TOEFL, a motivation letter and a letter on extracurricular activities. Find more information on the necessary documents here.

You don’t have to complete the application in one sitting. You can save your application and then finish at a later time. Partially completed applications will be saved for 30 days. Note that your date of application will be the submission date of your application, as only then we can view your application.

Once you submit your online application

You’ll get a confirmation email to the email address you registered with. This email confirms your application has been submitted.

Changes to your submitted application

Once you've submitted your application you won't be able to change it. If you need to make changes please send us an email.

Wait for us to contact you shortly

After we received your application, we’ll contact you directly. Either we confirm your application is complete, or we discuss in detail which documents are still missing.

Congratulations, your application is complete and you are eligible to our program. Now our admission committee wants to get to know you personally.

We schedule an interview with you. You live in the area? Then we invite you to our campus. You live further away? Then we arrange an interview via Skype. This interview will last approximately 30 minutes. The content is similar to an interview in the industry; it is held in English and preferably with a video call option.

At the end of our interview, we give you an outlook on the further admission process. The admission committee meets once per month, so your final decision can take a little. We are aware of visa process duration; therefore, we encourage you to apply early for your preferred starting date.

Receive your admission letter via DHL

Once we decide on your admission, you will receive a scan of your admission letter via email. The official admission letter will be sent to you via DHL postal service. This mail will also include further information on the transaction of fees and your enrollment at the university. Now you can start your preparations to come to Pforzheim!

Now that you are in Pforzheim, please come to our MBA office. We are happy to welcome you.

To enroll as a student in Pforzheim, we need to approve your documents. This means, you have to bring your mandatory documents to your office, either as the original for us to copy and approve or as a certified copy. Please be aware: Without these documents, you can not be enrolled as a student!
