Application Process

The application period commences on 1st February and ends on 15th May of every year. Applicants can only apply in the year they intend to start the MMT. The MMT program follows the German semester structure and timetable and commences with the start of each winter semester.

Applicants are required to submit their application via the online application form. We plan with a two-level application process, whereby the proces is still subject to approval of the amendment of the statutes by the university senate. This form of application requires next to information on your person, education, practical experience and your transcripts also an essay. This essay is designed to determine whether you have the skills and knowledge that are pivotal for you to succeed in the MMT program. The essay is limited to 5 pages and will include a management and an informatics challenge. The first level will thus assess the eligibility with the formal criteria, while the second level will evaluate the performance in the essay.

In case an application is not successfull, the applicant may repeat the application once.

The application process is as follows:
