A 2:1/1st class honours degree from a good university in any subject, or an appropriate professional qualification, plus at least three years' continuous work experience in substantial positions. If you have a lower class of degree then professional qualifications with substantial work experience will be considered. Applicants who do not hold a degree or professional qualifications may be considered if they have a very strong employment record demonstrating a high degree of responsibility. Generally a GMAT score is an essential part of your application (although under certain conditions a GMAT may be waived) - see the School's website for scores required.
