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 (Graduate Management Admission Test) with at least 640 points with their application. Please find more information on the required GMAT Score for Master´s programs 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. The changes will apply for applications for the winter semester 2022/23 and onwards. 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.


In addition all applicants must fulfill all of the following criterias:




Criterias to be eligable for this program

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.




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.





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’s degree) in a country within the European Union (as well as Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein) 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.


We follow a two-stage assessment procedure to be able to select the best possible candidates for the Master in Sustainable Management and 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 application will move on to stage 2, where the academic background, the grade point average as well as the assessment interview will be evaluated.

We expect a high standard of scientific work from our applicants. Therefore, applicants who do not meet these standards as in cases of plagiarism or the use of AI (e.g. Chat GPT) evidenced in the essay,  will be excluded from the process.
