The Salford MBA (Master of Business Administration) is a fully AMBA accredited degree that concentrates on developing the skills required to operate at senior levels within an organisation.  

Our MBA programme is available via three distinct learning pathways; The Salford MBA, MBA: Digital Business and MBA: Sports Business. Each pathway has been formulated in partnership with our leading research centres to impart the latest in academic theory and professional practice.

Entry requirements

Normally minimum 2:2 honours degree or equivalent in a business related subject.  

Candidates must have a minimum of three years full-time post study work experience with evidence of managerial responsibility.  

A wide range of professional qualifications are also considered for partial fulfilment of entry criteria. 

Appropriately experienced applicants without formal qualifications will be considered in line with the University’s Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) procedure.

Salford Alternative Entry Scheme (SAES)

We welcome applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully.

The Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process could help you to make your work and life experience count. The APL process can be used for entry onto courses or to give you exemptions from parts of your course.

Two forms of APL may be used for entry: the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).

English Language Requirements

Normally international applicants must also provide evidence of proficiency in English. This takes the form of IELTS 6.5 band score with no element below 5.5, or equivalent SELT grade.
