Admission Protocols

  • APPLICATION SUBMITTED: Application from prospective students are reviewed only once all documents are submitted and admission criteria met.
  • ENGLISH EXAM: As English is the common language used in Geneva Business School, TOEFL/IELTS/DET test scores , online, phone or face to face interviews measure each student's English proficiency level. Online English tests can be an alternative if necessary
  • INTERVIEW: After all references have been checked, a final interview takes place and then a final letter of admission is sent to the prospective student.
  • CONFIRMATION: The Registrar validates applications and informs the students. The Registrar reviews applications that may not completely fulfill the admission criteria and may accept them upon evidence-based competency proofs. In some instances an "entrance exam" may be added to assess candidates' proficiency in reading, writing, verbal, analytical and quantitative proficiencies.

Exceptional admissions conditions – COVID-19

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Geneva Business School Board of Management has decided that it will accept students even if they are unable to obtain their TOEFL/ IELTS English exam results due to the pandemic. During the application interviews, we will apply the same level of rigorous assessment as well as thoroughly evaluate the candidate’s level of comprehension in English to ensure that everyone has the capacity to participate in class. Candidates accepted to Geneva Business School without TOEFL/IELTS or high school examination results will be afforded one additional academic year, from the time they join our school, to provide the missing documents. Applicants may submit the Duolingo English Test (DET), which combines an English proficiency test with a brief video interview. Duolingo’s technology and format allows applicants to complete the test at any time or place with internet access.

Very beautiful campus with a sunny terrace and an innovative way to study using Google Classroom. I highly recommend this school! ‍ 

    A Flexible program with a supportive system

    I am a first-year DBA student at Geneva Business School in Astana Campus. So far, I have completed three courses and I can say that the Program fully met my expectations. The main distinctive feature of this program is that it is designed for working people, which means that you can maintain your professional life, family responsibilities while being an almost full-time doctoral student. The modules are designed so that you have normal live classes with professors every 3-month period, constant online homework occupation, and continuous support of your DBA Program Director and supervisor. This is more than enough to immerse yourself in the research world without giving up your main professional occupation and sacrificing your work-life balance. I am very grateful to Geneva Business School for designing this format of the DBA Program, which became a very natural continuation of my professional and personal development process.
