Application for master programmes


Consecutive Master Degree Programmes

"Consecutive Master Degree Programmes" are programmes that are strictly based on identically named bachelor programmes offered at HTW Berlin. In order to be eligible to apply for one of these consecutive master programmes, you must have completed a first academic degree in a related bachelor degree programme. For example, to study Master International Business at HTW Berlin, you must have concluded a Bachelor in International Business or at least a bachelor in a business or economy-related subject, while you cannot apply for Master International Business with a first degree in Fashion Design.

To see a complete list of the Consecutive Master Degree Programmes offered at HTW, please go to: list of study programmes

Please read up there to find out about the individual admission requirements for your desired consecutive master study programme by referring to the study programme regulations which can be found on the homepage of the required study programme. Individual admission requirements may for example contain proof of additional internships (abroad), relevant professional experience, motivation letter, abstract of the own final thesis, etc.

All applicants for a consecutive master degree programme must first fill in an online application at: (This page is only available in German) and after having done that submit their complete application documents, both must be done within the regular application period.

Own HTW graduates do not have to submit their overall average grade, admission to bachelor thesis and up-to-date grade transcripts, since these documents are already saved in the HTW backup system and will be obtained directly from the HTW examination office.

If you will not have obtained your final degree certificate until the end of the application period, your application may still be considered in the admission procedure, if you instead submit a confirmation from your university that you have already been admitted to your final thesis/final examination, plus an up-to-date grade transcript indicating your provisional overall average grade (this grade transcript must be signed and stamped your university).
