Entry Requirements Entry Requirements

Experience, qualifications and suitability

A candidate’s work experience is highly significant and we are looking for applicants with a minimum of three years in a managerial, professional, or entrepreneurial role.

In addition, candidates should normally possess one of the following:

First or second class honours degree, or international equivalent, or;
Relevant postgraduate diploma, or;
Qualification from a professional body recognised by UEA.

Applicants who do not hold a first degree or equivalent will be considered on the basis of their business and managerial experience, their career to date, and their likelihood of benefiting from the course. The final decision is at the discretion of the MBA Course Leader.

Please include a full CV with your application, detailing work experience and qualifications.

Please note that applicants for the Executive MBA and Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship should also hold GCSE Mathematics and English at Grade C or above (or international equivalent) as evidence of Level 2 functional skills – evidence of these qualifications must be provided before enrolment on the course.

English Language

We welcome applicants whose first language is not English, or those whose degree was not taught in English. To ensure such participants benefit fully from postgraduate study, we require evidence of proficiency in English and our entry requirements can be found here.


All candidates who meet the above requirements are interviewed as part of the application process, either in person or via Skype. This allows them the opportunity to ask any questions about the course, the School, and anything else they may wish to know that would help them complete their application.
