Application procedure

You can start the MScAPEC either in the fall or in the spring semester. Applications should be submitted to the Registration Office before the following deadlines:

  • April 30 to start the program in the fall semester
  • November 30 to start the program in the spring semester

Passed these deadlines applications can still be submitted but there may be an additional fee of CHF 100 (late application). 

Applications are reviewed year-round, with admission decisions communicated within one month on average. Students who are in the process of completing their bachelor's degree (e.g. final year students) will be granted a conditional admission offer and asked to present their degree upon graduation. 

For students enrolled in a bachelor's program at the University of Neuchâtel, please fill in this form (no application deadline). 

For all other candidates, online applications can be submitted from this link. When online applications are closed, please send your application form and all other documents by e-mail to the Registration Office. In addition, all applicants are advised to include the following optional documents:

  • A short letter of motivation (1 page max)
  • A curriculum vitae

The programme is taught entirely in English, so a good command of the language is necessary. However a specific language certificate (e.g. TOEFL) is not mandatory. 

Applicants who need a visa must start the procedure sufficiently early. We recommend that you apply about six months before the beginning of classes in September or February. Please also check the information provided by the Central Admissions Office.

 


 

Admission requirements

Direct admission: students with a Bachelor's degree in Economics or Management/Business from a Swiss university

Students with a Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university in

  • Economics
  • Management/Business

Conditional admission: students with another Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university

Applications by students with a different Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university (such as Political Sciences or International Relations) will be reviewed by the admissions committee.

  • If the completed Bachelor's curriculum includes more than 30 ECTS in Economics and quantitative methods, students can be admitted directly.
  • If the completed Bachelor's curriculum does not cover Economics and quantitative methods to a sufficient extent, students will be required to complete a one-term (30 ECTS) pre-programme. The pre-programme will be composed of courses from the Bachelor's degree in Economics, tailored to the specific needs of each candidate.

Conditional admission: students with a Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university of applied sciences (HES)

Applications by students with a Bachelor's degree from a Swiss university of applied sciences (HES) will be reviewed by the admissions committee.

Depending upon qualifications, students will be required to complete a one-term (30 ECTS) or  two-term (60 ECTS) pre-programme in Economics. The pre-programme will be composed of courses from the Bachelor's degree in Economics, tailored to the specific needs of each candidate.

Students with a non-Swiss degree

Applications by students with a non-Swiss degree are reviewed by the admissions committee.

Depending on qualifications and grades, students can be admitted directly. In some cases, students may be asked to complete a one-term (30 ECTS) or two-terms (60 ECTS) pre-programme in Economics.

Fees

  • CHF 790.00 per semester for non-Swiss residents

Application fees

For candidates enrolled in a bachelor's program in Switzerland we charge no administrative application fees.

Unfortunately, because of disingenuous applications in the past, all other candidates must pay an application fee of CHF 100. This fee is fully reimbursed when the student is admitted and starts the program (the amount is deducted from the tuition fees for the first semester).
