How to apply

Entrance qualifications

We would like to inform you that applicants with a Bachelor’s degree from China, Bangladesh, India, Egypt and Pakistan have to submit a GMAT (classic/focus) with at least 65% percentile ranking. For more information please click here


It is our primary goal to support students in the best possible way during their application process. If you have any questions or doubts regarding your application, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to assist you.


For applicants from other countries, the GMAT remains optional. However, depending on the GMAT score, additional points will be awarded at the first stage of the assessment procedure. Please find further information in the info sheet “How does the assessment procedure work?”


Furthermore, ranking certificates are not considered anymore. We use the overall grade for evaluating applications.


Important: The application process is 100% online. Hardcopies have to be sent to TUM only once you’re enrolling. However, uni-assist still requires hardcopies for the application.


In addition, all applicants must fulfill all of the following criteria:


Criteria to be eligible for this program

The application period for the winter semester runs from April 1st until May 31st and for the summer semester from November 1st until November 30th every year.

Start of the program: Summer Semester 2024

Application procedure

Your application will proceed through TUMonline. A guideline about the application in TUMonline can be found here.


If you did not obtain your first degree (usually a bachelor degree) in a country within the European Union (as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland) you have to apply via Uni-assist in addition to TUMonline. Uni-assist will make a preliminary evaluation on whether you meet the entry requirements for the master program at TUM. Please note that the uni-assist application needs to be completed before the end of the application period, however, the document that Uni-assist will provide you with (VPD), can be handed in later, even after the application period has ended.


All applicants, who wish to apply for a degree program at a German university with a Chinese, Indian, or Vietnamese school or university degree need a certificate from the Academic Evaluation Center (Akademische Prüfstelle, APS).


We follow a two-stage assessment procedure to be able to select the best possible candidates for the Master in Management & Digital Technology. In the first stage of the assessment procedure, candidates are evaluated based on their previous academic qualification (see “Entrance requirements”), their grade point average, an essay, and the result of a valid GMAT certificate (optional). If an applicant’s eligibility is still questionable after stage 1, the applicant will move on to stage 2, where the academic background as well as the essay will be evaluated.


We expect a high standard of scientific work from our applicants. Therefore, independently of the result in stage one, all essays will be checked to see if they comply with these standards.  Applicants who do not meet them, as in cases of plagiarism or the use of AI (e.g., Chat GPT, DeepL, Grammarly, etc) evidenced in the essay,  will be excluded from the process.  Essays are evaluated on the applicant's original work and the use of manual skills. We do not allow the use of AI technologies for idea creation, structuring, editing, or assignment completion.
