At least three years’ postgraduate work experience is required before you apply. This should include appropriate management experience and show some career progression.
If you don’t have the required amount of work experience, you might like to consider our MSc Management.
A good Bachelor degree, or an acceptable professional qualification.
If your qualification is below a 2:1 (hons) or overseas equivalent, or you don’t have a formal or professional qualification, you may be asked to complete a Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) with a minimum score of 600 (GMAT scores should be valid for the year of entry). In this case you should hold at least five years’ experience, which must include evidence of significant progression and management responsibility. These applications are considered at the discretion of the Programme Director.

An MBA challenges how you think and act in business. Employers want more from their managers than knowledge and strategic thinking – they also seek leadership skills, commitment and creativity. The Leeds MBA equips you to meet these challenges.
