Tips and tricks to apply successfully

  1. It’s good to know and think about what you would like to do and where you would like to work, e.g. which companies, which industries, which position etc. The Advanced Master you choose, makes a contribution to your work-life after you graduated. 
  2. If you already started an Advanced Master, you still have to do a self-reflection. You must always keep the goal in mind during your study.
  3. What business schools really want, is that you talk about what motivates you in life, what motivates you to do an Advanced Master etc. They want to know who you are, not just your professional experiences and academic excellence. They are going to ask you a lot of questions to get to know you. After those questions they will ask things about how the school can help in your professional goals etc. If you can answer those questions well, it shows that you are mature and have good self-awareness and they are going to invite you for an interview.

To resume

So begin with your self-reflection. Think about questions they can ask about yourself, your motivation, what the school can add to your professional goals etc. You have to answer it as honest as possible. Be creative and distinctive when you write your application. If you can generate interest, you’ll get an interview with the admissions committee.
