Program Description

The Liverpool MBA

University of Liverpool Management School ULMS

The core elements of the program – leadership, strategy, managing the environment, innovation, entrepreneurship, managing financial resources – are delivered in concentrated blocks to encourage a deeper understanding, with a strong emphasis on interactive teaching and learning.

MBA

You can choose from a number of optional modules which cover a range of business and management disciplines, including: marketing and branding, financial risk management, and operations and supply chain management. This allows you to specialize or develop greater breadth of knowledge. The broader skills you’ll acquire include analysis, problem solving, creativity and decision-making.

The Developing as a Manager and a Leader module will also serve to strengthen and hone your interpersonal, communication and leadership abilities – all of which will prepare you for success within the modern organization. Theory, we believe, has most value when it can be seen working in practice, which is why live case studies and simulations are central to teaching and learning. You’ll also have a range of opportunities to work on real projects for sponsoring organizations through work based projects and the student-led consultancy service.

Entry Requirements

MBA Candidates are normally expected to have a minimum of 2–3 years of substantive managerial experience in the private or public sector. 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 are encouraged to apply. All applicants must have reached a minimum required standard of English language, and are required to provide evidence of this.

MBA5

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.
