Requirements

Entry requirements

You will need a minimum of three years' experience in a managerial, professional or technical role, so that you have a practical business base on which to build your learning. There are two main routes into the postgraduate diploma: If you already hold an honours degree awarded by a UK university, or equivalent, you can begin your studies by taking MBA stage 1: management: perspectives and practice (B716) or the fast-track version of this module (BXFT716). Various higher education and professional qualifications are considered equivalent to an honours degree. Please contact us if you hold a qualification that you believe is an equivalent level to a UK degree, to ensure that it meets the requirements for admission. If you are experienced in managerial work but do not have an honours degree or equivalent you need first to gain our Professional Certificate in Management (S01). This is designed to be studied over one year and is also a valuable qualification in its own right. If you have the equivalent of a UK bachelors degree without honours you may be permitted to progress on to the postgraduate diploma by taking just the first part of the Professional Certificate in Management (S01): Managing 1: organisations and people (B628). Alternatively if you have an official Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score of 640 or above, and the equivalent of a UK bachelors degree, you will be allowed to progress directly on to the postgraduate diploma. Your spoken and written English must be of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum score of 6.5 under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
