Entry requirements

All applications are considered on their individual merits and will be assessed using a collective approach, which takes into account professional status and work experience as well as academic achievement.

Work experience

Candidates must have at least 3 years’ postgraduate work experience, which can be from any industry, including both private and public sectors, and charitable organisations.

Academic & professional achievements

You should have a good first degree awarded by a UK university or overseas equivalent, or a relevant professional qualification. If you do not have a first degree or professional qualifications you will need to demonstrate significant management or business leadership experience (normally 8 years). We will also consider an academic recommendation based on interview.

Numeracy & literacy competences

We will require evidence of numeracy and literacy competences, and you will be required to complete an authorised online aptitude test such as the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or School equivalent: The Bradford Test.

For the distance-learning MBA the requirement to take an online aptitude test will depend on the information provided at application.

English language proficiency

If English is not your first language, we may need evidence of your proficiency in English through a recognised test (IELTS, TOEFL or PTE-A). You will be required to achieve a minimum score of:

  • IELTS: 6.5 overall, with no sub-test less than 5.5; or
  • Internet-based TOEFL:
    • For EU, non-UK applicants: 94 overall, with minimum scores of: Listening – 17, Reading – 18, Speaking 20, Writing – 17
    • For International, non-UK/EU, applicants (UKBA requirement): 94 overall, with minimum scores of: Listening – 21, Reading – 22, Speaking – 23, Writing – 21; or
