The application for the specialisation Emerging Markets will be open from March 20 until April 17. If you would like to apply for this specialisation, please take the following steps:
- Fill out the application form. You can find it here ;
- Upload your most recent course transcript via My UM. Please download your current result sheet (grade list) from My UM/Courses/Academic Work and then upload it in My UM under the category List of Grades;
- Upload your motivation letter via My UM. Please make sure to follow the instructions given here. You can find some general tips on how to write a motivation letter here ;
- Upload an up-to-date curriculum vitae via My UM. (You are free to choose the format of the CV yourself.)
The assessment test will take place in the second half of April. There will be two opportunities to take the test, one in the first week of period 5, and another one in the second week of period 5. You will be able to choose which date to take the test (but you will only be allowed to take it once).
The nature of the test will be a take-home exam where you will be asked to write a short essay on a topic given to you, over a period of three days. It is not meant to be a very extensive test, so it should not interfere (much) with your regular studies during period 5. Detailed instructions and exact test times will be given shortly.
The deadline for the application is the 17th of April at 23:59. By that date, we will need a complete application. After the assessment test, a number of applicants will be invited for an interview, which will be held during the first half of May.
In case of questions, please contact us via emapplications-sbe[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl. We will inform you of the status of your file within 2 weeks after receipt of your application.
Please note that if you are selected for the programme, the initial selection (based on the motivation letter, test and interview) is conditional on passing 60 ECTS credits before the start of the 2nd year. That is, in order to actually start the programme in the fall, you must be without an obligation to retake any exam from the first year.
