Are you ready to apply?

Our MBA is open to all

Typically you will hold a recognised first or second class honours degree, or equivalent professional qualification. Students whose native
language is not English and who have not been educated previously in the
English language must provide evidence of their English language proficiency. Alternatively, formal entry can still be gained by passing three MBA courses one of which must be a core course.
