Application for student exchange program
Competition based and optional
International experience and cutting edge knowledge
Best international business schools
The status of the exchange programmes at GSOM has recently been changed by declaring them optional (until 2017 it was compulsory for all master’s programme students and students in specific bachelor programs). The main reason for this change was the intention to attract the students with high academic performance and strong motivation for participation in the exchange programs.
The selection of students for the exchange program is competition based and run in accordance with the certain criteria. The competition is held twice an academic year, (in early September and in early March).
*The dates may slightly be changed, please contact the International office.
It is possible to participate in the student exchange program more than once; however, going on exchange during the last semester of studies at GSOM is prohibited.
Students who have satisfied the GSOM internal selection criteria are nominated by the GSOM International office to partner universities. After the nomination each student submits all necessary documents directly to a host university.
