The QMU MBA fulfils the University's vision of providing an industry relevant and interdisciplinary experience for students. We consulted widely with employers and industry experts in devising this course. We know that employers look beyond the letters when recruiting and want employees with real-life experience; weve replaced the traditional dissertation with a student-centred, business focused project that allows you to investigate, design and engage in a real world project. In a business environment that is constantly changing, employers told us that they want staff that can apply their knowledge effectively within the workplace; and critically within the dynamics of high-performing groups and teams.

Description of MBA


Our courses take a clear and consistent focus on leadership, team and dynamics which challenge you to take a different roles in delivering objectives. The teaching team who deliver the masters courses have experience of leading highprofile teams in industry and academia as well as the public and third sectors. They are enthusiastic about their areas of expertise and just as enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with you. Your fellow students will come from a wide range of both geographical and business backgrounds, enhancing the overall experience. What our students have in common is an enthusiasm for learning and an ambition to succeed. If you are considering applying and can add your mix of enthusiasm and ambition to the course we would be delighted to discuss entry.

English Language Requirements


IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
