What is a certified official copy?

Make a copy of the original document and take both versions (copy and original) to your university OR a notary public OR the German Embassy OR any other person/institution authorised to legalise documents and have the copy certified as a true copy of the original. You keep the original and send us the attested hard copy by post. A copy of the certified copy or a scanned version is never a legalised document and not sufficient for your application to be considered for the programme.

Admissions evaluation criteria

Admission to the programme is based on the following criteria:

  • Cumulative grade point average (40%)
  • Number of economics courses taken (25%)
  • Letter of motivation (35%)


Please note that only complete applications accompanied by all of the necessary supporting documentation will be considered. Please attach only ONE copy of the documents in a pdf. or jpeg. form (no doc. or docx. form will be accepted!). Please name each attachment according to its content (e.g. motivation letter, CV, passport). Applicants who do not submit the certified copies of their university degree certificate and grade transcript by the deadline cannot be considered for admission.
