MSc in Business and Management Research - How to apply

Entry requirements

Applicants seeking to enter the MSc and DBA programme will normally be expected to hold a masters degree in the area of business or management together with at least five years' relevant experience. Candidates wishing to transfer from the MSc to the DBA programme will require an average of 60% in the MSc (and 60% on the Research Proposal element). Where an applicant has an existing Masters qualification in research, such as an MPhil or MRes, typically with a 'merit' pass or equivalent, it may be possible to join the DBA stage directly.
