Our online Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme is aimed at professionals looking to further their careers in business and gain knowledge they can apply immediately in their work.
Both educational qualifications and work experience are taken into consideration when you apply to the University. But we do expect applicants to have a minimum of three years’ relevant work experience with a practical background/knowledge of business.
In general, you will be expected to have a bachelors degree from an accredited college or university or a degree from a recognised institution comparable and/or equivalent to a British honours degree, as well as relevant working experience at a management level.
Applicants who do not directly meet the educational requirements will be evaluated on an individual basis, taking into account vocational and professional qualifications, and working experience.
If you’ve studied on a master’s degree level within the last three years, and have not used your credit to obtain an award, you might qualify for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Find out more.
You must prove that you meet the minimum English language proficiency requirements for this programme by providing results of an IELTS/TEEP or TOEFL exam taken in the last five years unless:
Published work in English cannot be used as evidence of English language proficiency.
