Statement of Purpose

Please explain your motivation for applying (500 words).


We have a strong preference for candidates with a GMAT score of at least 600 (or a GRE equivalent; please check the GMAT equivalent of your GRE score in the GRE® Comparison tool). Please note that GRE and GMAT scores are valid for five years.

The GMAT or GRE General Test can be replaced by the CEU Math Test. The test is comparable in format, length and difficulty to the quantitative section of the GMAT. Please see a sample test here. The CEU Math Test can be taken online, after submission of your online application. The first Math entry test is going to take place on January 11, 2022 for early-bird applicants and February 18, 2022 for scholarship applicants.

You may submit a GMAT or GRE score by uploading a scan of your score report to the relevant section of the CEU Application Form. If the score report is not available at the time of your application, please upload proof of having taken the test in lieu of the score. You may arrange for an official score report to be sent to CEU. CEU's institution code for the GMAT is 0203. CEU's ETS institution code for the GRE and TOEFL is 0069.

Admission Interview

You may be contacted for an interview as part of the review process. The interview may be conducted on the phone, through Skype, or in person, depending on your availability.

The admission interview is an approximately half an hour conversation with one of our faculty members about your background, work experience (if any), motivation to join the program, future goals etc.

Visa Requirement for Part-time Applicants

Acceptance for or enrollment in CEU's part-time programs does not entitle you to a student visa or residence permit. Therefore, if you are accepted, you will need to hold relevant resident status in the Schengen Area on another account such as employment, marriage etc. If you have no such status, please apply for the full-time MS in Business Analytics.
