As places on the programs are limited, candidates are encouraged to submit their application packages early in the academic year, ideally 6 to 9 months before the start of the programme. The 4-stage admission process is explained below:

  • The complete application package should be sent to ESIC in order to start the admission process. Details and supporting document can be found here.

  • The Admissions Board assesses each application package and makes recommendations based on the academic requirements and on the candidate’s overall suitability for the program (please see the program’s brochure for more details).

  • Candidates recommended by the Admissions Board are invited for a personal interview (usually on Skype)”. For IMBA and MBA, after the personal interview (usually on Skype) candidates recommended by the Admissions Board are invited to take a skills and knowledge test; the latter can be waived on the basis of GMAT scores.

  • Successful candidates receive a letter offering admission. The complete process may take up to 30 days.
