What we are looking for
Candidates that do more than just check the boxes.
We want candidates who want to be at the forefront of the digital advances in finance that we see today and those that are yet to come. Candidates that embody the talent that companies have been pining for. Candidates that feel empowered by everything digital and that empower others to reach their full potential.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
The admissions process aims to paint a coherent, accurate picture of who you are. We want to know how you impact the digital world around you --and how it impacts you-- and why we should sit up and take note. Beyond your test scores and GPA, we want to find out what it's like to interact with you and why you are likely to succeed in the future.

Coronavirus admissions process FAQ
The value of flexibility in today's VUCA world.
Coronavirus has had a big impact on all of our lives in many different ways. EADA is committed to supporting candidates who are experiencing difficulties due to the epidemic, and we have created this list of FAQs to guide you through the admissions process as smoothly as possible.
EADA has established monthly admission deadline. This allows us to process applications faster and respond quicker, so that you can get started planning your year at EADA as soon as possible.
EADA understands that university closures may temporarily delay your academic documents and recommendation letters. These delays will not impede your completion of the admission process and we will be as flexible as possible. Your Admissions Manager can advise you about your specific case.
You can take EADA’s online admission test as an alternative. Select the option “I will take EADA’s admission test” on your application form.
This year, EADA is accepting scholarship applications via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
EADA has also set aside additional funds for scholarships for candidates whose application may have been delayed by Coronavirus. We encourage you to apply for funding before the deadlines for the October 2021 intake. You can find more detailed information (including specific deadlines) on the "Fees & Funding" tab of your programme.
We understand that it is especially difficult to commit to your future studies in these uncertain times. With this in mind, EADA has reduced the initial deposit required for our full time programmes. We hope that this will provide you with enough flexibility to make your final decision without the risk of losing your reservation.
At EADA, health and safety is our top priority. We have established strict measures which are being constantly updated as the pandemic evolves and we learn more about transmission and prevention - you can see more details here about how we have prepared our campus to host students, staff and faculty safely.
Applying is half the battle.
Admission rounds let you plan your timeline for your future studies. Planning ahead can improve your chances of being admitted and cut down on the costs of studying abroad.
EADA has several admission rounds for our International Master programmes. You must fill out the online application form, upload all of the required documents, complete the admission test and do the interview before the deadlines listed below to be considered for an admission round. We recommend completing your application package on the online admissions platform 2 weeks before the admission round deadline to ensure that you have time to complete the interview and admission test.
Applying early will ensure that candidates have ample time to complete the visa process as well as any supplementary language work required. For candidates interested in scholarships, we strongly recommend applying to the first or second admission rounds.
Once all of places in the programme have been filled, a waiting list is opened.
ADMISSION ROUNDS (FALL INTAKE: OCT. 2021 - JUN. 2022)
