Selection procedure

First the candidate can spontaneously send his c.v by email to the head of the program, for a first evaluation:


This first informal step will sort out candidates who would not, anyway, be accepted (work experience judged too short, for example). The candidates, who are accepted, can then put together an application file.


The Executive MBA Dauphine uses a selective admission procedure in 3 steps:


Step 1:

Hand in a complete application file, including work attestations for the previous 4 years, photocopies of degrees and marks obtained, if necessary translated into French, a cheque for 100 Euros for file..


The application file is to be returned to the following address:
Université Paris-Dauphine
Executive MBA Dauphine / DEP
Place du Marechal de Lattre de Tassigny
75 775 Paris cedex 16


Step 2 :

A first selection via the application files
This first selection will take place the week after the deadline set for depositing the files.
Several selection sessions may be set up.


Step 3 :

For candidates whose files have been accepted, convocation to the interview with the admissions jury.
The interviews take place on the same day at the university.
The Admissions jury is made up of an Executive MBA Dauphine Professor, President of the jury, together with possible Alumni participation from the Executive MBA Dauphine, other professors, the Head of the Permanent Education Dept.


The interview lasts 30 minutes and may be in French and /or in English. The jury renders its decision within 5 days of the interview.


There are 4 possible decisions:

  • Admission to the Executive MBA Dauphine,
  • Convocation to a second interview, with another jury,
  • Refusal,
  • Provisional admission on a waiting list.


The decision of the jury may not be contested.
Admission to the Executive MBA Dauphine may be subject to condition (for example a condition of employment at the start of the university year dates or depending on upgrading language levels)
The candidate is informed by email or post of the decision of the jury.
The successful candidate must confirm his admission to the Executive MBA Dauphine.

Admission is valid for the beginning of the following university year and is not valid for a later year.
