Based on the quality of the application, our Admissions Office will invite you to attend a half-day assessment session at the School in the center of Paris. If travelling to Paris for assessment is not possible, you can take it online from anywhere in the world.
Assessment tests: you will be invited to take two short tests (one hour for each) to assess quantitative reasoning skills as well as analytical and writing abilities. All tests will be conducted in English.
Alternatively, candidates can opt to do the GMAT and - for non native speakers - a TOEFL (or TOEIC, IELTS, CPE or PTE Academic) for English proficiency. For successful candidates with a GMAT score above 550, the internal tests will be waived, and these candidates will be invited to admissions interviews directly.
Assessment interviews: you will be invited to meet the Dean and/or Assistant Dean to discuss your MBA project, career objectives and motivation for joining the program. The interviews will be conducted in English and will last around one hour.
The final decision will be based on the quality of all the elements of your application. The Selection Committee will determine whether or not there is a logical match between the École des Ponts Business School MBA´s philosophy and admissions criteria and your profile: motivation, maturity, internationality, professional objectives, leadership, personality and potential for contribution to the MBA class.
Candidates usually receive an answer within one week of completing their application and interviews. Depending upon your availability for interviews, the complete admissions process lasts on average four weeks.
