In your first year, you will take the same courses as all other International Business students, ranging from Finance to Accounting to Management of Organisations and Marketing. This gives you a solid footing from which to choose the specialisation Emerging Markets or continue with the regular International Business programme for your second and third years.
The application for the specialisation Emerging Markets will be open from March 19 until April 19. 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 deadline for the application is the 19th of April at 23:59. By that date, we will need a complete application. After the application is submitted, you will be invited for an interview, which will take place later in April or in May.
Before the interview you will receive a collection of articles and video clips to read or watch in advance. In the interview those readings as well as your motivation for wanting to do the Emerging Markets specialisation will be discussed. After the interview you will be given a recommendation regarding your choice of specialisation (i.e. whether the Emerging Markets specialisation is a good choice for you).
