Admission requirements

The admission requirements apply equally to all Master´s programmes at the Faculty of Economics of Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica.

The basic requirement is the completion of a Bachelor´s degree.

The application can be also submitted by students in their last year of Bachelor´s study. It must be mentioned in in their CV and application. The candidate who fails to prove in time that he / she meets the admission requirements can be conditionally admitted to study if they do so on the day of enrolment for study at the latest.

Another requirement is to pass the entrance exam. The entrance exam consists of a written test in major subjects of the Bachelor´s degree programmes in the particular field of study. The maximum score in the entrance exam is 100 points. Students of the Finance, Banking and Investment programmes shall take a written test in the major subjects of the Bachelor´s degree in the particular field of study in English.

The applicants who completed the Bachelor´s degree in the same field of study shall be admitted without the entrance exam. Those who completed the Bachelor´s degree in a different field of study can be admitted with or without entrance exam according to the decision of the Dean. In case the number of applicants accepted without entrance exam is higher than the planned capacity of the study programme, Dean has the right to decide about admission according to the candidates´ grade point average from Bachelor´s study.

The applicants who have passed the entrance exam will be admitted to study according to a ranking compiled on the basis of their total scores up to the planned capacity of individual study programmes.

Dean can exempt from the entrance exam those applicants who had previously passed the entrance exam, and had been admitted and enrolled for study in person (on site) and were expelled from study.

Students who have completed the previous degree abroad must have the diploma recognised in the Slovak Republic. The admitted students shall submit the document recognising the diploma no later than the day of enrolment.

Applicant, who has completed a previous level of education in a country outside the European Higher Education Area, is required to attach to his/her  application form a notarized photocopy of the internationally accepted IELTS certificate - International English Language Testing System with a minimum entry score of at least 6,0 from all parts no later than April 30, 2023. A notarized photocopy of the certificate must be delivered to the faculty in a paper version (the electronic version is not sufficient) no later than April 30, 2023. The certificate sent only in the electronic version will not be accepted and the applicant´s application form will be cancelled.
