Final admission decisions into the Faculty of Business Administration depend on the quality of the eligible applicant pool and the number of available places for the term in question.


Academic Advisors

Every student is assigned to an academic advisor. The advisor plays the role of the student’s mentor and directs the student in choosing his/her courses and in any academic matter. The adviser communicates and embodies the culture of the institution and guides the students through the curriculum. In addition, the adviser helps the students in assessing career opportunities or future graduate studies opportunities.
