We Look for Highly Motivated Candidates

The EMMS admission process is rigorous and designed not only to determine if you are suitable for the program, but also if the program will meet your expectations and your career goals.

Admission Process

Applications are examined on a rolling basis and those received well in advance of the deadline have a greater chance of being admitted. Therefore, it is in your best interest to submit your application as early as possible.                                                                    

As soon as the selection process is completed you will receive a formal letter from the Admissions Service, which will inform you of the admission decision. The results are never communicated by telephone.

The selection process will yield one of the following results:


  • Admission: If you are accepted, alongside the official admission notice you will receive a participation contract.
    If all available places are occupied, the school may decide to put you on a waiting list or offer you admission for the following year.
    Admission to the program is valid for the year the application is submitted. However, you can request deferment for the following year, but approval of deferment is on a case-by-case decision by the Admissions Committee.


  • Non-Admission: Admission to the program is highly selective. The selection process assesses the profile of the individual candidate while taking into account the composition of the EMMS class, which must be consistent with the quality and diversity the school requires. While we are aware of the deep commitment all candidates must make to go through the selection process, the school does not provide further clarifications to non-admitted candidates.


Upon confirmation of your admission, you will receive an enrollment form that must be completed, signed and uploaded to MyApplication by the deadline indicated in the admission’s letter. To complete the enrollment process, you have to make the first tuition payment.

In some cases (more frequently for extra UE students), if admitted, you may also be required to send by land mail the official/original or certified degree certificate/transcript.

To be eligible for a tuition waiver, applicants must:

  • Have the pre-requisites for the tuition waiver
