State in the e-mail your full name and that you are ready to start your MBA-studies. If you are unable to send this e-mail 29 August for some reason (work travel for instance), send the e-mail 26 August before 22:00 hours CET instead.

An introduction meeting will be held 31 August at 15.00 CET to inform students on the conduction of the programme. The online conference tool “Zoom” will be used with this meeting link.
