Once we have received your documents, you will receive an e-mail requesting that you log in and choose a date for the general business administration test and the real estate specific test.
The aptitude test is multiple choice, filled out on a computer and evaluates your existing level of knowledge about business administration.
Depending on your prior knowledge in business administration we recommend the following literature to help you prepare for the general business administration test:
- Thommen, Jean-Paul / Achleitner, Ann-Kristin: Allgemeine Betriebswirtschaftslehre
- Kreuzer, Christian: BWL kompakt – Die 100 wichtigsten Themen der Betriebswirtschaft für Praktiker
The focus of the degree program specific real estate test is on residence law, real estate valuation, structural basics, basics of real estate management, real estate finance and public construction law (building regulations of Vienna). This is because the Master’s degree program in real estate management is not a degree program for beginners, it requires students to have a solid knowledge base.
