Entry requirements

You will need a minimum of three years’ experience in a managerial, professional or technical role, so that you have a practical business base on which to build your MBA learning.

Also depending on your previous qualifications, you can start the MBA if you hold either of the following:

– an honours degree awarded by a recognised UK university, or equivalent. Various higher education and professional qualifications are considered equivalent to an honours degree. Please contact us if you hold a qualification that you believe is an equivalent level to a UK degree, to ensure that it meets the requirements for admission.

– our Professional Certificate in Management (S01) (previously coded C31). Both are now discontinued.

If you have the equivalent of a UK bachelors degree without honours you may be permitted to progress on to the MBA course if you have successfully completed Managing 1: organisations and people (B628). Alternatively if you have an official Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score of 640 or above, and the equivalent of a UK undergraduate degree, you will be allowed to progress directly on to the MBA.
