Diploma requirements and initial competences

Required initial competences

Master programmes

In order to find out whether you are eligible for one of the master's programmes, you can check the required initial competences per course in the Course Catalogue.

Preparatory programme

The courses in the preparatory programme are not introductory courses, they are more advanced courses with required initial competences. Therefore we advise you to check these initial competences in the course specifications, which can be consulted in the Course Catalogue.

In order to clarify the mathematical skills that are required, we provide you with exercises you have to be able to solve without too many difficulties. These exercises are only applicable to students who have to follow a preparatory programme in Business Engineering and take Mathematics II (A) and Mathematics II (B).
