    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

Academic Requirements

The unique, robust and specialist Masters level qualification is delivered within the Business School of the University and at partner institutions overseas. It is aimed at any person, with a suitable management background, who would like to develop their capabilities and apply such learning to release such talents in others.

In order to benefit from the degree you will need to have an educational, experiential or professional base that involves working with others in a management capacity. In order to cope with the demands of the course you should have:

  • An Honours degree in any discipline from a recognised higher education institution;
  • Appropriate Management experience of at least 2 years (or equivalent);
  • For international students English competence of IELTS 6.0 or equivalent is required;
  • Special entry is available for those with no degree but with extensive management experience.

Successful completion of this degree will enable you to have the necessary knowledge and research that will underpin your abilities to release enterprise and imagination into your team and company. You will be a strong role model so you will need to be a person who is willing to critically reflect and engage with personal and organisational change. As the degree is rooted in workplace practice and experience it is also essential that you have the support of your line manager and your colleagues, or others with the necessary power and influence. Your success as a student will be dependent on you taking your learning into your organisation and experimenting, challenging and actively reflecting.

Some of these criteria will be a challenge to you. You are probably aware that the degree will be hard work but it will also be fun and will enable you to develop your management and creative ability practically. You may discuss with the Course Director before acceptance for the degree and he will explain more fully to you the implications and intended outcomes of the course and explore with you your ability to engage in the learning requirements of the qualification.
