Autumn 2022 joint application (31 Aug - 14 Sep 2022)

Master of Business Administration, Business/Sales Management

Selection methods:

  • Certificate-based selection – 50% of study places
  • Entrance examination – 50% of study places

Certificate-based selection

The certificate-based selection method is used when applying with a Finnish bachelor degree completed in a university of applied sciences (UAS Bachelor Degree). The selections are made on the basis of degree information found in the My Studyinfo service. Information on the degree certificate appendix can be used only if the degree information is not in My Studyinfo service at all. When applying with another eligible degree, the selection method is entrance examination.

If the link provided is incorrect, has expired or no link has been provided, the applicant will not be considered in the certificate-based selection and his / her average will be changed to zero on the application form.

The grade average weighted according to the credits in the higher education degree must be calculated from the higher education degree course grades which are visible in the My completed studies at My Studyinfo service (only available in Finnish/Swedish). Grade from thesis is not included in the average. If the applicant has completed more than one UAS Bachelor degree, the grades are considered for the degree which gives a better average The courses within courses shown in the service are not included in the grade average. The verbally assessed courses are not considered in calculating the grade average (e.g. approved/pass / hyväksytty/suoritettu). You can find your completed studies in the My Studyinfo service  specifically to each degree.

When calculating the weighted average grade, the numerically assessed study units are weighted; in other words, the grade for the study unit is multiplied by the number of credits received from course in question. The weighted grades are calculated together and the total is divided by the number of credits received from the numerically assessed courses. The result is a weighted average grade rounded to two decimal places.

You can use Excel  to help with your calculations (in Finnish)

Entrance examination

The entrance examination will be arranged as online exam on 25 October 2022. All eligible applicants are invited to the entrance examination by email. Please check also your trash mail folder.
