Pre-Master - Business Administration Preparation for Non-Business Economists

Sound knowledge of business administration is often the prerequisite for a Master's programme in the field of management. However, many interested students do not meet the admission requirements with their Bachelor's programme.

The compact preparatory semester enables you to qualify for the diverse Master's programme at ISM. It doesn't matter in which field you have completed your Bachelor's degree: we make you fit for the Master's!

How Can I Apply?

After completing my bachelor's degree in fashion design, I was looking for a master's degree in business administration. The Pre-Master at the ISM teaches foreign students like me the basics of business administration and has made it possible for me to pursue my desired course of studies.
