MBA Courses & Qualifications

MBA Entry Requirements

At Manchester Met, we want to attract the brightest and best business prospects onto our AMBA-accredited MBA programme.

The course is designed with professionals in mind, and this is reflected in our entry requirements. We welcome applicants who meet either of the criteria below:

Entry Criteria 1

  • At least 3 years work experience
  • A good degree (minimum 2.2) in any subject from a recognised University
  • An equivalent academic or professional qualification, e.g. HND, CIMA, ACCA

Entry Criteria 2

Many candidates mistakenly believe that they must already have a university degree to earn a place on our MBA programme. This is far from the case. We will also consider candidates with:

  • Significant management experience (ideally 10+ years)
  • A substantial record of achievement in Business and Leadership

Supporting references

We ask candidates to provide at least one employer reference to support their application. This should cover the last three years of employment.
Candidates are welcome to include additional employer or personal references.

English Language Requirements

English proficiency is an essential requirement for our MBA programme. If English is not your first language, Manchester Met requests that you provide documentary evidence of your English language ability.
Our minimum requirements are:

  • IELTS 6.5
  • TOEFL iBT 90
  • TOEFL paper-based test 577
