There is no distinct profile or background for TIME candidates. Applicants from all academic backgrounds can apply for a post in TIME; not only graduates of departments of business or economics. In fact, our Admissions Team enjoys the privilege and experience of partnering closely with people whose goals are varied. From career switchers to students seeking to delve deeper in their field or industry, prospective graduates will find TIME MBE to be an integral part of their personal and professional development.
However, since much of the TIME MBE curriculum requires quantitative skills, we encourage students to complete introductory courses in calculus and statistics prior to enrolling. TIME faculty who teach quantitative courses will assume you have mastered the basic material.
In order to complete the online application form and be eligible for the TIME Program you need:
The online application involves:
As an optional requirment, you need your official test taker copy of the Graduate Management Admissions Test GMAT score. (Note: you must ensure that your GMAT score is valid upon submitting your application). The GMAT score code for students who aim to apply for TIME is VDM-2C-05. Students that list this code in their GMAT application will have their GMAT score forwarded directly to TIME.
An extra optional requirement is a 300-word essay that details any other information you believe that the Αdmissions Committee should know about.
Apart from the above, you have the opportunity to provide additional explanations or clarification. If needed, use the Additional Information section in application form to briefly describe any extenuating circumstances (e.g. unexplained gaps in work experience, choice of recommenders, inconsistent or questionable academic performance, etc.) (no word count).
As English is the language of instruction in TIME you have to prove your command of English. If English is not your mother tongue, proficiency in English can be demonstrated either through the IELTS, with a minimum score of 6 (preferably in all sections of the test), or through TOEFL with a minimum score of 230 for the certificate obtained through regular examination or 90 for the TOEFL iBT test administered via the Internet. Only score results that correspond to an examination during the last two years are considered valid. Exemptions may be granted if one of the following criteria is met:
In exceptional circumstances, the candidate can ask for her English skills to be tested verbally by TIME-MBE.
To prevent processing delays, we strongly recommend that your upload your official score reports (if available) to the application. Please note that your command of English will be continuously assessed during the admissions process. You can obtain detailed information about the TOEFL by visiting http://www.toefl.org, or the IELTS by visiting http://www.ielts.org.
Applications will be accepted and considered even without the English test score, however acceptance will be conditional until you take the test and send us the results.
