We normally look for a First or Upper Second class honours (2:1) degree from a UK university or the overseas equivalent. You need to have studied a degree in economics, finance or business studies. You must have taken a significant number of economics, finance and quantitative modules during your degree to at least second year undergraduate level (third year for four-year degree courses, but accounting is not a substitute for finance), and a major or specialisation in economics or finance in your final year. You must demonstrate a solid background in quantitative skills, econometrics or mathematics. We also consider applicants studying degrees in business administration, business management or commerce who can demonstrate a very strong background in economics and finance throughout their degree and a final year major or specialisation in economics, and strong quantitative skills (as outlined above). Due to competition for places, we give preference to applicants with an undergraduate degree in economics or finance. We highly recommend GMAT or GRE for applications to all our accounting and finance related programmes. We anticipate a well-balanced score with a strong performance in the quantitative sections. All applicants must pay a £60 non-refundable application fee before applications are considered. See MBS website for further details of entry requirements and method of payment.
