General admission requirements

Applicants need to have a German final degree or an equivalent foreign degree that qualifies for a profession (e.g. Bachelor).

Applicants must have completed a minimum of 30 ECTS credits in Economics and a minimum of 18 ECTS credits in quantitative methods (Mathematics, Statistics, and or Econometrics). Please also note important information about prior knowledge of econometrics, which can be found here.

This requirement can also be fulfilled, if you hold a German high school diploma (Abiturzeugnis) with 6 years of English. Please consider that this is only valid for a German high school diploma. The English language requirements can also be fulfilled if your previous studies were mainly carried out in English language.

You are required to prove your German language level, if your previous course of study was not carried out in German. In this respect, please note that the language requirements for applications and for enrollment vary.
