MIM application deadlines and process
Applications to the MIM program are reviewed on a rolling, first-come, basis. The deadline schedule below should serve as a guide for your application planning.
Class sizes at ESMT Berlin are small, thus limited places are available. At this time, the September 2018 class is full and we are no longer reviewing applications.
However, if you would like to still complete your application for this intake, we will contact you in the unlikely event that spaces do become available. Alternatively, if you will still meet the admission criteria for the MIM program next year and would like to apply, we encourage you to submit your application for the September 2019 intake.

More visa information here.

Applicants from Australia, Brazil, Canada, El Salvador, EU, Honduras, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States, DO NOT need visas to enter Germany as a student. As these regulations can change without notice, please confirm with ESMT or your nearest German Embassy or Consulate.
Classes begin in September 2018.
