Selection Procedure

Registration for the selection procedure for the German-​taught bachelor’s program in Business, Economics and Social Sciences | 2022/23 academic year is now closed.

Details on the 2023/24 selection procedure will become available in early 2023.

Are you interested in pursuing the German-taught bachelor’s program in Business, Economics and Social Sciences at WU and starting this program during the 2022/23 academic year? If so, please register for the selection procedure.

The selection procedure is held once a year. If you pass the selection procedure, you will be able to enroll at WU and start this program in the 2022/23 winter semester or the 2023 summer semester. In the 2022/23 academic year, there are 2,703 available places.

In previous years there have usually been more applications than available study places, which is why we assume our two-step selection procedure will also come into effect this year. As soon as we know, we will inform you on this page and by e-mail. For more information on the selection procedure, please see the detailed information and our FAQ's below.

What happens after May 31, 2022?

We will send you an email a few days after May 31, 2022 to let you know whether or not you will have to do a an online Open Book Exam (see Step 2: online Open Book Exam).
