Edinburgh Napier University · School of Management and Law

Entry requirements

You will need a recognised Honours degree at 2:2 or above, or equivalent. Alternatively, you may have an equivalent professional qualification, or qualifications and experience, in which case you will be asked to complete a specified piece of work as part of the selection process, or attend an online interview. In order to determine suitability for postgraduate study, information is sought through the application form. The process is designed to enable judgement to be made regarding equivalence to Honours degree outcomes: Applicants without the required level of academic qualification, for example holders of a degree without honours may be considered if they have significant experience in a post of appropriate professional, administrative or managerial responsibility. It is anticipated that the additional experience will provide learning opportunities which will be regarded as equivalent to honours level outcomes. Those applicants who do not possess an honours degree may be enrolled, in the first instance, as Associate students for the first trimester. Satisfactory performance on these modules may result in registration on the MSc Business Management programme. Applicants with other relevant qualifications from recognised academic or professional institutions may be considered for entry where the learning outcomes from these qualifications can be satisfactorily matched against those of the MSc BM. All applicants are required to have an Internet connection.
