Pass-world is an exclusive entrance exam taken by international students across the globe who are aiming to enter French-based Schools of Management via an admissions process based mainly on previous qualifications. Applicants must therefore hold a minimum Baccalaureate-level diploma or 2-3 years of post-secondary study (or the equivalent for their country of origin) in order to register for the exam.

 

In addition, Pass-world is open to students from all educational backgrounds, from the arts to sciences, thereby enabling students to direct their studies towards the field of Management and then specialize during the final academic year.

 

Our member schools, all of which are affiliated to the “Chapitre des Ecoles de Management” of the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles”, present specific advantages and learning opportunities. They deliver top-quality teaching and award a Master degree equivalent to 5 years of post-secondary study that is recognized by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

 

There is no maximum age limit for taking the Pass-world entrance exam.
