Please choose a date that suits you (test dates are offered on a first come – first served basis). For organizational reasons it is not possible to change the date of your test.
Contents of the computer-based admissions test:
- Understanding of mathematical logic
- Verbal intelligence/creativity
Information about the duration of the test:
Please note, the computer-based test must be completed within a time period of two and a half hours, plus an extension period of max. 15 minutes. At the end of the 2 hours and 45 minutes the test will be stopped by the trainer. Tests that are not completed will still be marked. Keeping track of time is the responsibility of the student.
It will be made clear that the different test blocks take different amounts of time.

Degree program specific admissions procedure:
If you receive a confirmation for the degree program-specific part for both Marketing & Sales and Communications (Example: Priority 1: Marketing & Sales Full-time, Priority 2: Communication Management Full-time), then please select a course-specific date for your first priority.
