Important characteristics of the IBA programme are its international dimension and high performing students. Admission to the IBA programme is therefore based on:

  1. your academic performance as indicated by your grade point average - 75%
  2. your CV (resume) or motivation - 25%

Prior academic performance is the best predictor of future success in the IBA programme. Therefore, your grade point average (GPA) contributes to 75% of your final score, which is used to determine your rank. Applicants who meet the minimum grade point average (GPA) will be awarded 'selection points'. The higher your grade average, the more 'selection points'  you can earn. Applicants who do not meet the mathematics and/or English requirements, or who do not meet the GPA requirement for their specific diploma will be placed in the lower tiers of the ranking
