Entry requirements

The University of Liverpool Management School continues to welcome applications that fulfil our admissions criteria in order to select a balanced international student cohort. However in order to maintain the high quality of student experience, programmes will stop accepting new applications from certain countries once the number of offers from these countries exceed the target. As students from different countries tend to apply at different points in the application period, applications from some countries may close earlier in the year. In these cases we will aim to provide a 3-week notice period to the affected country, prior to any programme closure.

A 2:1 Honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in Economics or a related discipline with a quantitative focus.

Students with a 2:1 degree from a quantitative Science discipline (e.g. Maths, Physics, Statistics, Operations Research) are also encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have competency in A-Level Mathematics/Statistics or equivalent.
