Global MBA - Entry requirements
- A university degree or appropriate professional qualification. If you don't have a degree or a professional qualification, you may be considered based on evidence of your ability to study successfully at postgraduate level. This evidence may include Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) results, together with evidence of substantial business or professional achievement
- A minimum of 5 years full-time relevant work experience gained after graduation
- If English isn't your first language, you'll need a minimum IELTS score of 7.0. This may be waived if you've worked or studied in an English-speaking environment for at least a year
- In addition to providing evidence that you meet the above entry requirements, you'll also need to submit a copy of your CV
We also require two references from suitable sources on our reference form in support of your application to the programme. One reference should usually be from your current employer, and the other from a previous employer. Referees must be senior to you and able to comment on your work and suitability for MBA study.
If you work for a family business or are self-employed, a reference from a client will also be suitable. If you are not supplying the details of your current employer, please explain why in the extenuating circumstances section of the personal statement.
We cannot accept references from colleagues, personal friends or family members. We also don't usually accept references using personal email addresses e.g. gmail.
Although your referees will receive an electronic request, it is our experience that referees respond more quickly if the candidate sends the reference form directly to them as well.
