MBA applicants are required to have either:
A minimum of five years relevant professional experience since gaining their degree or other qualifications.
Evidence of work experience will need to be submitted in the form of a letter, on letterhead, from a past or current employer stating the date you started working for the company, your role, responsibilities, and the date you finished working for the company - or that you're currently employed.
Applicants who do not have a tertiary qualification are expected to provide evidence of relevant professional experience deemed, by the Examination Board, to be equivalent to an undergraduate degree. This would typically be 10 years work experience of which 3-4 is in a supervisory or management capacity. Candidates may also be required to complete an aptitude test and/or attend an interview.
Applicants for whom English is a second language must have an IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 overall and a minimum of 6.0 in each band.
Applicants who have completed their tertiary study or work experience overseas may be required to obtain a satisfactory result in the GMAT.
