It’s about seeing opportunities in challenges and then having the skills to exploit them – from exporting to new markets to getting the most out of your team, we equip you to manage complex challenges and lead decisive, innovative changes to capitalise on opportunities through smarter ways of working.

The fast track

With intakes every October, we offer three ways to study:

  • Full-time over 1 year, for maximum career-acceleration
  • Full-time over 2 years with 45-52 week internship, for the chance to maximise your practical exposure with employers and build your UK job prospects
  • Or you can study part-time over 2-3 years, designed for working professionals, typically based in the UK

Study options

We offer three ways to study: full-time over 1 year; full-time over 2 years with the internship; or part-time over 2-3 years. All MBA students study the same taught modules.

Entry criteria

The Loughborough MBA is aimed at experienced professionals looking either to advance their careers and make a real difference to the organisations they work for or to lead their own successful businesses.

Successful applicants must hold either a Bachelor’s degree from the UK or recognised overseas University, membership of an approved chartered institute or a Diploma in Management Studies.

See our full list of International Qualification Equivalencies for all countries. Degrees must be obtained from a university or institution recognised by Loughborough University. Please contact us to clarify if required.

We believe that your experience adds value to the classroom. That's why we are exclusively looking for applicants with:

  • At least 3 years professional experience
  • Substantial achievements and leadership potential
  • Academic ability
  • GMAT not required

The requirement of a degree or similar qualification is occasionally waived for those who possess significantly higher levels of experience and achievements – in which case an interview and test will normally be required.

MBA English language requirements

  • The University’s requirement of a minimum IELTS result of 6.5 overall average with at least 6.0 in each component (Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking).
  • Applicants without the required IELTS result may be made a conditional offer such that they provide the University’s standard IELTS requirement as above.
