Admission Requirements

The following admission requirements must be satisfied for a student to be admitted:

  1. An accredited Bachelor’s degree (European, American or equivalent) is required for admission to the MBA programme.
  2. Proficiency in English – Students satisfy the English requirements if their first degree was taught in English. Otherwise, you would need to present at least a TOEFL score of 550 paper-based or 213 computer-based, or GCSE “O” Level with “C” or IELTS with a score of 6.5 or score placement at the ENGL-100 level of the University’s Placement Test.  The University offers English courses at various levels to help students reach the required standard for admission.
  3. Standardised Test Scores – The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is required of all students with a minimum score of 400. Students with a CPA of 2.5 or higher on the 4-point system or 2.2 for UK standards or equivalent, or three years of professional experience will be exempted from the GMAT. A candidate without the GMAT may be provisionally admitted and be allowed to take the Foundation courses but such students will be accepted as MBA students only upon submission of the GMAT score as stated above.
  4. Academic Background – Applicants with a non-business background can be admitted into the programme but they may have to take preparatory foundation courses.
  5. It is recommended that applicants have previous working experience. Personal qualities such as motivation, character and leadership play a significant role in the admission process.
  6. Letters of Recommendation – Two recommendation letters from persons who have known the applicant in his/her educational and professional environment are required.
  7. Individual Interviews – is the standard practice for all students.  The interviews elicit motivation, leadership, potential and personal mission. In special cases, where interviews are not possible, written evidence and data on the applicant’s past work experience, maturity and personality are assessed to the best possible degree.
