2. Your application will be evaluated according to the selection criteria set forth by each respective BIP partner company.
3. If you fulfill the company-specific criteria, you will advance in the application process. Further criteria determining final selection for admission vary from company to company and may include completing written placement tests and problem solving tasks or participating in group discussions or individual interviews.
4. After being selected for admission, you will receive an educational contract from the BIP partner company, which you will then sign and return to the company.The BIP partner company will then notify the University of your admission. Subsequently, the regular enrollment takes place at the Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society. The university will contact you about 4-5 months before your scheduled start of studies. You will also have to register on the website of the University. Further information on enrollment can be found at www.hwg-lu.de/service/studierendenservicecenter-ssc/fuer-studieninteressierte.html.
