Admission to the Master?s program requires an undergraduate university degree, with a special preference for degrees in Economics, Business Administration, Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics. Applicants should either have finished or be about to finish their undergraduate degrees. A good knowledge of English is required, since the Master is taught in English. The admissions committee will take into account the following information: Undergraduate grades, especially in subjects that are close to the contents of the Master. Letters of reference written by professors who have followed closely the applicant's studies. The scores of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) General Test. The score of the Test of English as a Foreing Language (TOEFL), for applicants whose native language is not English. The statement of purpose and any other additional information supplied by the candidate. Applications arriving by early February 2009 will be considered for a first round of admission decisions. Later on, a subset of preselected candidates within short-haul travel distance will be asked to take an admission test and have a personal interview in Madrid. A second round of decisions will be made in early May 2009. Admission to the PhD in Economics usually takes place through our Master in Economics and Finance. Second-year Master students interested in the PhD can apply from 1 February of each academic year. We start making admission offers from this date until the end of the academic year. Students with a grade point average of around 80 out of 100 in the Master will be automatically admitted, but this is a sufficient, not a necessary condition for admission. Satisfactory progress in the Master thesis will be an additional consideration in all other situations.
