Admission to the Master Examinations

Master Students

Students enrolled in the Master in Economics program need to be admitted to the module examinations by the Economics Examination Office. Admission usually takes place in December (see Dates and Times on the left).

From the summer semester 2021, the admission procedure has been digitized and applications can be made on this website. Please have the following documents ready for upload:

  • a completed CV with photo,
  • a certified copy of your Bachelor degree certificate (or a certified translation if your degree certificate is not in English or German; incl. overall grade and graduation date),
  • certified proof of English proficiency, at least on level B2 of the CEFR [e.g. recognized language tests (TOEFL or IELTS etc.) or equivalent proof (e.g. previous Bachelor study program in English, English language course with appropriate language level during the Bachelor study program, with restriction (please contact us): proven English proficiency during entire school education].

Please do not send us any documents by post unless you are requested to do so separately (e.g. by email).

You cannot participate in the first exam phase if you fail to meet the admission deadline at the beginning of the semester. Before the second exam period there is a subsequent admission deadline. The exact dates can be found under Dates and Times (see portlet on the left).

Students with Preliminary Studies

Students with preliminary studies in Germany or abroad can find further information here.

In that case you have to (Examination Regulations 2011)  or you may (Examination Regulations 2017) present the following documents during admission as well:

  • a completed transfer of credit application or a waiver,
  • a current, complete transcript of records,
  • a clearance certificate (Unbedenklichkeitsbescheinigung) from your former university (Germany only).

PhD students/BGSE students

PhD students who are only enrolled for the PhD program (and not for the Master in Economics program) need to present

  • this application form
    (please fill out the form on your computer and print it out).


Students who have started their studies in the winter semester 2017/2018 or later have to hand in the Master student application form (see above -> Master Students). All documents listed under Master Students must be handed in.

 Students who have started their studies before and are enrolled for both progams (Master and PhD), need to present the Master application form (see above). Please add the note "BGSE" to the application form.
