Keep in mind that our goal in the admissions process is to identify and enroll individuals with strong leadership potential who will enhance the diversity in their classroom.

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 or by TIAS directly.

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 January-May 2020.


The results of the Orange Tulip TIAS Business School Scholarship will be published on the website of NESO-Russia around June 1 2020. 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.

Application deadline is 1 May 2020 (продлен до 1 июня)

At TIAS we understand your education is important to you. Your graduate degree is a once-in-a-lifetime investment and therefore you want your degree to really add something relevant to your employability. Our one-year graduate degree programs will start in September 2020 and our goal in the admissions process is to identify and enroll individuals with strong leadership potential. Individuals who also will enhance the diversity in their classroom and can contribute in a positive way to their peer-group.
