a) The email address which the University provides to the student upon enrollment will be used principally for communications with that student. For this reason, it is essential that the student periodically checks it.
b) Failure to make payment shall result in non-admission or termination of enrollment according to University rules
. In case of cancellation of the
registration because of failure to make the
payment, Universities can demand payment for previous enrollment in earlier academic years as a previous condition for future
Universities shall not issue a diploma or certificate when a student has payments of any kind pending.
The University provides students with an e-mail address upon registration, and because it is the University’s primary means of communicating with students, it must be activated and checked regularly.
All students will receive a Carlos III University student ID card which will provide access to the Library, Student Residence Hall and University sports facilities.
The University does not offer health insurance to its students. Each student must arrange a contract with the insurance company of their choice. This can be done in the country of origin or once in Spain.
The University does not directly provide accommodation for our students. However, the International Relations and Cooperation Office offers information to international students about university dormitories and other types of accommodation such as sharing flats with other students.
Failure to pay tuition entails the rejection or cancellation of a student’s enrollment according to the terms established by the University. In cases of cancellation of enrollment due to failure to pay, the University can demand payment of sums pending for enrollment in previous academic courses as a prior condition to enrollment in the MiM.
Because of legal requirements, the expedition of degree diplomas and certificates is conditional upon the payments of all monies owed to the University.
All applicants must possess a bachelor degree or equivalent (three or more years of university studies) from an official university. Students in the last year of their Bachelor’s studies may also apply for admission; their application will be considered upon confirmation of the completion of their Bachelor’s program.
Priority will be given to applicants whose Bachelor’s studies are related to the contents of the Master’s program: business administration and management, economics, marketing or finance. However, outstanding, highly-motivated students from other disciplines have also been admitted in past editions. The next figure portrays the distribution of students according to their background in the last four years:
We ask applicants with an academic background that is different from Business/Economics to motivate their intention to pursue a Master in Management degree and to provide evidence of Business/Economics knowledge (e.g., the results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), a complete list of the courses taken from Business/Economics with the official grade). In addition, we required students with a background that is different from Business/Economics to complete the pre-master’s summer program.
While we value professional experience, we recommend applicants who can demonstrate more than three years of post-bachelor professional experience to consider applying for our AMBA accredited 11-month Master in Business Administration (MBA) program.
