General requirements

To study at this level at Sheffield, you will require:

  • A good undergraduate degree or equivalent qualification. On occasion, the university may consider delegates without a first degree but with significant management experience
  • Three years to five years' postgraduate work experience. This should include appropriate experience as a manager or in a supervisory role

You may be asked to attend a face-to-face interview. This is conducted by a member of admissions staff or the MBA Programme Director and takes place on campus, in your home country at an agreed time and location, or by Skype.

Language requirements

If your undergraduate degree was not in English, you will need to demonstrate competence in written and spoken English. We ask for IELTS 6.5. with no component below 6, or equivalent.
