Scholarship Interview

All scholarship interviews are by invitation only. Candidates invited to interview have been reviewed by the Admissions Board of TIAS and are considered competitive for admission. Candidates who are invited to the interviews will be notified by Nuffic Neso-Russia.
Your admission interview is both evaluative and informative: it is not only an opportunity for us to learn more about you, but also for you to learn more about TIAS. Scholarship interviews will be arranged by telephone/Skype in February-May 2019.


The results of the Orange Tulip TIAS Business School Scholarship will be published on the website of NESO-Russia around June 1 2019. When making scholarship decisions, the TIAS admissions board reviews all application materials submitted by candidates and assesses each candidate's overall qualities: academic profile, strength of overall admissions application, quality of admissions interview, and employability. Like our admissions decisions, all scholarship decisions are made by the admissions board using a comprehensive approach that takes into account a variety of personal criteria, including educational achievement; life experiences; personal interests; location of residence; student's goals and background and GMAT score or in-house test score. Please remember that a high score does not guarantee admission, just as a low score doesn't preclude admission. We accept students with lower scores if we believe this can be offset by stronger areas in one’s profile. Since we are such a very diverse school, we are keen to see whether you have worked, lived, studied abroad, or worked for an international company. So while a solid test score is important, it is not necessarily a deal breaker for admissions.
