Entry requirements

As an applicant for one of our research degrees, you should possess a Masters degree at 60% (Merit) or an overseas equivalent, with a significant component in Business or Management.

If you have a Masters degree in a subject other than the one you plan to research you will need to demonstrate specialist academic knowledge, for example through your masters dissertation or, in exceptional cases, prior experience of management.

Candidates who do not meet the entry criteria should consider the integrated route through MRes.We consider all applications on their own merit and cannot review individual eligibility before you apply.
