The English language proficiency requirement can be waived if you meet one or more of the following:

  • You are a native speaker of English and you completed your education in an English-medium institution in a country where English is the official language.

AUM reserves the right to request English test results from any applicant.

Please note: For students who do not meet the English proficiency requirement, conditional acceptance can be offered to our English for Academic Purposes Program Program designed to improve student's English academic proficiency before entering their degree.

Your professional experience and leadership examples are two areas we pay particular attention to when considering your acceptance into our MBA program. Please upload an up-to-date, thorough CV that details your career achievements, leadership abilities and community outreach.

In order to get to know you and your personal and academic goals better, we will arrange an admissions interview after our admissions team has reviewed your application.
