Authenticated (certified) copies of your certificates are required for the admissions process. Either general university entrance qualification for Germany or direct university entrance qualification in home countries through a secondary school leaving certificate obtained there and possibly other entry requirements for the respective home country. Applicants who have not yet received their school-leaving certificate when they apply to study at the International School of Management may submit a copy of their most recent certificate. If they are admitted to the ISM, these applicants should submit an authenticated copy of their school-leaving certificate no later than the date of enrollment.

- External proof of knowledge of foreign languages (if available).
To be able to choose Spanish or French as second language, you need a proof of German proficiency of at least a B2 level (e.g. TestDaf). If you have any separate certificates of achievement confirming your foreign language proficiency (e.g. TOEFL test), please also submit them to us. However, these certificates are not obligatory for your application to study at the ISM. You may hand them in until the start of your studies.
- Work/internship certificates (if available).
Students who have begun a study program at a different university and wish to continue it at the ISM can have both their credit for study or examinations, and their language skills in English and French/Spanish/German recognized.
