Entry is competitive on the part-time MBA programme. We look to admit the 'right' Manchester MBA person and are looking for the most talented candidates with the highest potential, not just those with the most experience or best test scores.

We take a holistic view when evaluating applications, paying particular attention to academic credentials, fast career progression, leadership characteristics and entrepreneurial talent. We assess your potential compared to peers to contribute to and enhance the diverse professional backgrounds, cultural profile and experience of the MBA class.

We use a wide variety of criteria to evaluate applications. The requirements below are assessed using all the application elements: application form, essays, references, CV/ résumé, degree and professional qualifications, admission test score, English level and interview. Decisions are made by consensus of the MBA Admissions Committee.
