Entry requirements

Our admissions process identifies and selects the most talented managers from a wide range of business and cultural backgrounds. You should be able to demonstrate leadership, maturity and motivation, be able to contribute to the MBA programme and achieve your career goals.

If you have previously studied at postgraduate level in the UK on a student visa then you need to provide evidence, in question 3 on the application form, of how an MBA will support your career development. You can find more information on visas here.


A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) or overseas equivalent, or an acceptable professional qualification. 

If your qualification is not equivalent to a 2:1(hons), or you don’t have a formal or professional qualification, we may consider your application based on successful completion of a Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) with a minimum score of 600, as well as significant management experience (GMAT scores should be valid for the year of entry).

Work experience

At least three years' postgraduate work experience is required before you apply. This should include appropriate management experience and show some career progression.

If you don't have the required amount of work experience, you might like to consider our MSc Management.

English language

If English is not your first language please read the English language requirements.
