Business Administration

Our MBA online is an advanced qualification designed for students who wish to build on their business expertise and open up new career progression opportunities. The course enhances your skills in several key areas, including the management of people, organisational systems, project delivery and management reporting. It also helps you to develop your personal and professional network as you study alongside like-minded individuals. Strong leadership qualities are recognised as crucial for directors and senior managers in the modern business environment. The MBA online provides you with the theories, tools and techniques to become an effective leader in your organisation. As well as developing graduate skills such as analysis and interpretation of data, negotiation and persuasion and the presentation and communication of information within a team, you gain relevant and up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the key issues in business and management.

Entry requirements

1. Academic Entry Route

In order to satisfy the Academic Entry Route requirements for our MBA programme you must have the following qualifications as a minimum:

  • A 1st, 2:1 or 2:2 undergraduate degree from an approved institution equivalent to a UK Honours degree or a relevant professional qualification.
  • At least three years’ relevant, professional work experience.
  • If English is not your first language, IELTS (Academic) 6.5 or equivalent. If you do not hold an IELTS or equivalent qualification, we require students to pass a free online English test.

2. Open Entry Route

We recognise that you can gain skills in a wide variety of ways and that prior academic performance is not the only indicator of an applicant’s ability. Therefore, if you do not meet the minimum academic standards above, you may still be eligible to enrol via our Open Entry Route.

If you are a non-standard applicant (which is typically an applicant who possesses an undergraduate degree below a 2:2 standard, or an applicant who does not possess an undergraduate degree at all) we require at least five years' of relevant managerial experience.

If English is not your first language, IELTS (Academic) 6.5 or equivalent is required. If you do not hold an IELTS or equivalent qualification, we require students to pass a free online English test.

Your application will be considered on an individual basis taking into account your motivation for doing the course, prior work experience and other relevant qualifications that demonstrate your ability to successfully complete the programme.

If you enrol on our MBA programme but decide that online learning isn’t for you, we will allow you to withdraw within 21 days of the start date stated on your offer letter. If you have paid an initial deposit up front, you will receive a full refund.
