Motivation letter

Aside from your grades and your résumé, we are mainly interested in your motivational letter as part of our admission process. What problem are you trying to solve? What is your motivation for solving this particular problem? What energy do you want to bring into the business world? If you already have an idea for a company you’d like to start, tell us the process behind its inception and the potential you think it has. Your letter doesn’t need to be more than 500/600 words.

If you are stuck on what to say, you could address these points:

  • Do you have any relevant experience regarding entrepreneurship and/or consultancy?
  • How would you introduce your worldview to colleagues in our first meeting?
  • Why do you want to participate in this course?
  • What do you hope to gain from this course?
  • In group work situations, what do you think you bring to the group in terms of qualities and competencies?
  • Explain problems in your everyday life that could be solved by a new company.
