Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Prospective students are notified of their admission status by April 15.
The Selection Process
Admission decisions are based on a review of the candidate’s academic competencies and potential: grades, class rank, coursework, standardized entrance exams, language abilities, professional experience, and character are taken into consideration. Accordingly, the statement of motivation, CV or résumé, and letters of recommendation are important in providing a complete profile of the applicant. Please note that the application is not complete until ASE has received all supporting documents, including letters of recommendation.
The African School of Economics provides two offers of admission: Conditional and unconditional. A conditional offer requires the applicant to provide additional information, such as proof of graduation or final test scores. For unconditional offers, the student is fully admitted to ASE.
Applicants who are less qualified are ranked and either accepted or denied at a later date, depending on available positions and the candidate’s potential to succeed in ASE’s rigorous academic environment.
ASE is a highly competitive institution. The application and selection process is extensive; we carefully select only the most qualified candidates. Unfortunately, the Admissions Committee is not available to provide feedback on unsuccessful applications.
