School of Business accepts 264 applicants for master's studies
A total of 548 people applied for master's degree studies in business in a process which was concluded at the end of January. Of these, 264 new students were selected. 296 people applied last year. The increase in the number of applicants was 85.1 per cent.
The increase in applications for business and economics is partly attributable to the change in selection criteria for admission groups. The most popular application targets were Management and International Business and Business Law. In addition, changing the language of the business law programme from English to Finnish, and dropping the GMAT-/GRE test requirements probably helped increase the number of applicants for the programme.
The majority of applicants for business and economics applied on the basis of a Finnish higher education degree. A third of applicants applied on the basis of a higher education degree completed abroad.
The deadline for accepting the offered study place is 29 May 2015 at 3 pm Finnish time (GMT +2).
