The International Business Master's programme follows consecutively from the International Business Bachelor's programme of the HTW Berlin.
Successful applicants for the Master's programme must:
a) have successfully completed a first academic degree programme with 210 credits (ECTS)
b) have completed either an International Business Bachelor's degree or German "Diplom" degree in a related subject whose content is comparable with completion of three of the four following modules from the International Business Bachelor's programme of the HTW Berlin:
- Corporate/Business Finance
- Financial Accounting
- Business Mathematics/Statistics
c) provide evidence of "advanced knowledge of English" at the C1 level
The selection committee will determine comparability for points b) and c).
Please familiarise yourself with our criteria: https://international-business.htw-berlin.de/master/programme-regulations-modules/.
Applicants are required to provide evidence of “C1” (proficient user) English language skills according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) in the form of one of the following tests:
- a TOEFL Test with a score of at least 95 points for the Internet-based test
- an IELTS Test with a score of at least 7.0
- a PTE Academic Test with a score of at least 76 points
- a comparable test proving English language skills at the C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
The results of the language test must originate from within two years prior to the application.
Evidence of language aptitude is not required for applicants whose mother tongue is English (for example UK, USA).
In the case of applicants who can prove that they have studied a programme conducted in English at an university for at least one year, the selection committee may waive the requirement for evidence of language aptitude.
It is strongly recommended to provide an aptitude test in those cases as well.
All applicants must apply by 15 December for the following summer semester.
Ensure that your application contains all the required documents.
Only complete applications can be considered in the selection process.
