Admission requirements

The number of students who can opt for the double degree Innovation Management, Entrepreneurship & Sustainability (IMES) is limited. Therefore, a selection will be made in the first semester at the University of Twente (UT). The selection is mainly based on study progress and motivation. To be admitted to the double degree programme and before going to TU Berlin, the following requirements have at least to be fulfilled:

  • A completed bachelor degree
  • At least 25 EC completed from the master's programme Business Administration

Principally, students of all specializations in the UT master's programme Business Administration are eligible for the IMES double degree. Yet students are advised to choose the Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Entrepreneurship (EIS) specialization. As the EIS track is closely linked to the courses provided at TU Berlin, these students are given priority in the selection procedure.
