Admissions FAQ

How do I apply?

There are two part in the admission process: first you hand in step 1 application documents, including the application form, your CV, a digital photo, a business card and an organizational chart.
Once the documents for step 1 are received, qualified applicants will receive an invitation for an informational interview (in person or by phone). After the interview, qualified applicants will be invited to hand in step 2 of the application, including among others two letters of recommendation, official university degree(s) and transcript(s), employment history and professional experience, for non-native English speakers an acceptable TOEFL score or equivalent. A non-refundable application fee of CHF 200 is required from all applicants and due by January 30.

Do you hold information sessions?

Yes, multiple sessions are held in Switzerland and in Europe each year. Current schedule to be determined. If you are unable to attend one of the informational sessions, we would be happy to schedule an in-person interview, or to talk to you by phone. Please contact us to schedule a meeting.

Do I have to take the GMAT?

While the GMAT is not a general requirement for application, it may be requested for specific applicants who have atypical educational and/or professional profiles. If you have taken the GMAT within the last five years, you should include your scores with your application. For information on the GMAT test, visit or call 1-800-462-8669.

Do international candidates have to take the TOEFL?

Some schools specify a minimum score; others say that an international applicant who has worked in the US full time for 2 or more years in the last 5, or who holds a degree from a US university don’t have to, but this is up to the Admissions Committee. Non-native English speakers should provide an acceptable TOEFL score or equivalent.

When are applications due?
