IBD Business School invites applications from all qualified Polish and international candidates. We strive to make our application process as straightforward as possible; however, the rigorous Admissions Criteria we apply to ensure that each candidate will be studying alongside a diverse group of capable and highly motivated classmates, require the application process to be well-planned and carefully conducted. At the same time, our EMBA Team is ready to help the applicant throughout the application process: from his/her first enquiry until the application is complete.
- First degree – bachelor’s or master’s
- 5 years of managerial work experience (or 3 years with GMAT)
- English competency test: TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, CAE or equivalent (not applicable in certain cases)
- Successful interview conducted in English
The admissions process is composed of the following steps:
- Filling out and submitting an application form together with the required transcripts and certificates
- Securing references
- Participating in interviews
- Taking admissions tests, if required
- If admitted, confirming participation in the programme
Candidates must submit a complete application form to be considered for the Executive MBA programme. The form can be submitted in hard copy (mailed to us or dropped off at our office) or on-line, by mailing it to email@example.com.

Transcripts and certificates
Applicants are required to enclose any educational transcripts and degree certificates. Scanned copies are acceptable temporarily, especially when applying electronically; however, submitting the originals will still be required before accepting applicants onto the programme. Transcripts and certificates issued in other languages than English and Polish must be translated by sworn (certified) translators.
English language ability
Your spoken language skills will be assessed during your admissions interview and in some cases, (e.g. evidence of working in English on a daily basis) you will not be required to take one of the language tests cited above. If you have not already taken the tests, please check with us before booking them.
Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)
Please check with us before booking your GMAT test.
We ask that you provide two references, using the IBD reference form available below. They are an important part of the admission process and help us to understand how other people view you and the contribution you have made in an organisational, professional or personal context. We require at least one professional reference.
The second can also be a professional reference, but this is not mandatory. You may choose to use a mentor, coach, peer or someone with whom you work closely. Your references may be supplied after you have submitted your application.
Once IBD Business School has reviewed your completed application, and if the Admissions Committee decides to take your application further, you will be invited for an interview either in person or by video call (Skype). The interview will be conducted either by the EMBA Programme Director or the Admissions and Recruitment Manager or by both of them.
