The Admission Committee will meet for a Pre-Selection Jury, where they will examine your application in detail. During the Pre-Selection Jury, we will consider your educational background, extracurricular activities, essays and recommendations. Your application must show motivation to succeed and clear reasoning for applying to Renmin Business School for the Global BBA program.

The interview (most often via Skype or phone) is a great way for us to assess your communication skills, leadership potential and ability to contribute effectively to group discussions, as well as to consider whether your personality complements the mindset and culture of Renmin Business School.

Right after the interview, our Admission Committee will meet to discuss and decide upon your application. They will review every aspect of your application and your performance in the interview. Decision outcomes may be “application admitted”, “decision deferred”, or “application denied”.
