Entry requirements

Entry to the MBA Finance programme requires a 2(ii) undergraduate degree in a relevant subject (e.g. Economics, Finance, Accounting, Management), or a similar qualification from any other institution. A good degree from a reputable university is required, or equivalent overseas qualification and grade. Alternatively, possession of a suitable professional qualification and relevant practical experience may also be accepted. In general, however, applicants are judged on their individual merits, and age, work experience and other factors are also taken in to consideration. Whilst work experience is desirable, it is not essential.
