Admissions

What kind of candidate do we look for?

Dual Degree students are driven, dedicated and creative individuals who hold outstanding academic and/or professional achievements, as well as excellent interpersonal and communication skills. We seek both high-potential candidates who match our entrepreneurial spirit and those who are already putting their skills into practice. Most importantly, we’re looking for balanced individuals who are enthusiastic about their academic and professional future.

The admissions process is meticulous, and each candidate is evaluated individually and holistically to decide whether they are the right fit for our programs and global community. We grant places on a rolling basis, yet space is limited, so we advise all interested candidates to submit their application as soon as possible to guarantee their place.
