The ULMS continues to welcome applications that fulfil our admissions criteria in order to select a balanced international student cohort. 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.
MBA Candidates are normally expected to have a minimum of 3 years of substantive managerial experience in the private or public sector.
They will have managed budgets/people/projects.
Meet our current MBA students.
Candidates will normally be expected to hold a 2:1 Honours degree (which may be in any discipline) from a UK university, or an equivalent professional qualification from a similar non-UK institution.
Non-graduates who possess extensive professional experience (more than 5 years) and/or a postgraduate qualification are encouraged to apply.
Non Standard Entry
Non Standard entry relates to applicants who may not hold a degree or the required degree classification. We would still encourage applications if you have:
- Significant management experience (more than 5 years),
- Substantial record of achievement in business and leadership (for example accredited training courses, learning & development courses),
- Below 2:1 or no formal university degree.
Each application is considered on a case by case basis and will include a short assessment set by the Director of ULMS MBA Programmes.
Applicants should apply via the normal route. For more information on this non-standard entry process please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The personal statement encourages students to write between 100-200 words for each of the following sections:
- your interest and experience in this subject area,
- your reasons for choosing this particular programme,
- your future aim or career plan
- how the programme of study enables you to achieve this.
A GMAT score is not a mandatory requirement; however, we do encourage candidates who have undertaken the examination to submit their scores for consideration alongside other criteria during the admissions process.
We look for a balanced score across all components of the GMAT and will only accept scores which are still valid (attained within the last 5 years) by the time of entry to the programme.
Our institution is listed as University of Liverpool, University of Liverpool Management School and the programme code for the full-time MBA is: ZCC-MW-25
Applications from international students are welcomed. Country specific information on entry requirements is listed on our website: www.liverpool.ac.uk/international/countries/index.htm. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.
English language qualifications
All applicants must have reached a minimum required standard of English language and are required to provide evidence of this. Qualifications accepted by the University can be found on our International webpages. Please see www.liverpool.ac.uk/international for English Language requirements specific to your country.
If you meet the academic requirements of the course but do not have the required level of English Language, it is possible for you to come and study at the University on one of our Pre-sessional EAP programmes. Please see the English Language Centre website for further information about these programmes; http://www.liverpool.ac.uk/english-language-centre/pre-sessional-english-courses/.
If you require additional English Language training during your study, the University is able to provide tuition and arrange IELTS tests through its English Language Centre, details of which are available at www.liverpool.ac.uk/english-language-centre.
We have simplified our IELTS requirements to an A-F band equivalent. View our IELTS academic requirements key here for equivalents.
