Entrance exams to the Master’s Programs consist of the following two parts:
a. Written part: An essay to be sent via E-mail
Applicants are expected to do a case-study analysis on general social and economic topics so that they provide an independent, logically founded and professionally defendable standpoint on the issue in question. Applicants in the analysis are expected to use concepts and methods of the economic literature profoundly. The purpose is to see how well-informed applicants are in political and international issues, as well as to measure their theoretical knowledge and analytic skills.
b. Oral part: A telephone or Skype interview
The purpose of the interview is to measure applicants’ verbal competences, as well as to learn about their motivation for joining a program. Interviews are evaluated, among others, on the basis of how successful applicants are in communicating their ideas, what career plans they have in mind or how they think they can benefit from the Master’s program in order to meet their future goals.
