Applying for your MBA

The application process is an important part of choosing a programme best suited to you. It is an opportunity for you to demonstrate to the business school why you want to study for an MBA, how well you will handle the work commitments and whether the one you have chosen is correctly aligned with what you want to accomplish after you have finished. 

The application process for each business school varies, though it can generally include:

  • Proof of your undergraduate degree
  • Completing an application form including written assignments and references 
  • Submitting your CV (to prove minimum of three years' postgraduate work experience)
  • GMAT or other entry test (not always applicable)
  • Language test (if wanting to study outside of your home country)
  • Interview (telephone or face-to-face)
