Even though the majority of our enrollees are holders of degrees from leading economic and engineering faculties, we accept candidates with backgrounds other than Economics or Engineering if they are:
- familiar with essential topics of mathematics (Multidimensional calculus, basics of optimization; Linear Algebra; Convex analysis and Kuhn-Tucker theorem; Theory of probability and statistics);*
- familiar with fundamental economics; and
- have the level of English language skills advanced enough to take English-taught courses (IELTS 6.0+ or TOEFL 80+).
*We require that your previous degree contain minimum 3 courses in higher mathematics, including one from the list: probability theory, mathematical statistics, econometrics, random processes. Average grade at least В (75%) or equivalent.
Alternatively, GRE Subject test in Mathematics ≥600 points is accepted as the proof of good mathematical skills.
