Applications may also include:
- References or letters of recommendation
- Writing sample - the best relevant academic text written by the student (essay, analysis, case study, etc.)
- Students who are not native English speakers may also include a copy of their results of IELTS, TOEFL (for TOEFL, please use our institutional code 6633 if you wish for your results to be sent directly to us) or any other English-language certificate.
For some programs you also need to submit other documents, these are:
- All applications for Bachelor in Economics and Finance (BEF) must include test results or certificates to demonstrate applicants' sufficient competence in mathematics and English. For details, please see: BEF Admission Criteria

- Applicants for Corporate Strategy and Finance (CSF) needs to have a sufficient background in mathematics and statistics. They will be required to present either syllabi and grades from their undergraduate studies showing the extent of their knowledge in these fields or the results of some standardized test with a mathematical component (e.g., GMAT or GRE).
- Although a background in mathematics is not formally required for International Economic and Political Studies (IEPS) admission, it is an advantage for IEPS applicants to have an aptitude for maths and statistics, especially for those who want to specialize in economics and finance.
