Answer Ashridge Business School:Thank you for your question. One of our entry criteria is that applicants must have a minimum of five years business experience. This is a post experience programme for experienced managers.

Die besten Jobs von allen

Entry qualifications are: a first degree or professional qualification, a minimum of five years' business experience, preferably internationally, GMAT (we are not looking for a particular score, since we assess GMAT alongside other entry criteria - equally important for us is a candidates' experience, track record, and what they are bringing to the programme), two references and an interview with the Intake Director.The fee of £30,000 includes tuition, course materials, use of the learning resource centre, virtual access to the learning recourse centre when off site, case studies, photocopying and food during modules. Accommodation is not included.Overseas participants make up approximately 40% of our intake and we expect all participants to have international experience. We normally receive three applications for one place.Answer Cranfield School of Management:

Dear Herbert

In answer to your questions:

1. is it possible to enter your program with a German diploma of a University of Applied Sciences?

Yes - we would regard this as equivalent to an ordinary UK Bachelors degree. However, you would also need to meet our other entry requirements (see answer to question 2).

2. What are the main conditions for entering (grades, qualifications, TOEFL, etc.)

The normal age range of our students is 26-36 and our entry requirements are:
A good degree and/or professional qualification.
A good balanced GMAT score (the average at Cranfield is 650).
The British Council English Language Test (IELTS) result in band 7 or a TOEFL score of around 600 (paper test) or 250 (computer test).
At least 3 years post qualification work experience. This ensures that students get maximum benefit from the programme. We find that students learn from each others' experience, as well as that of the teaching staff. Because of this requirement for full-time, permanent postgraduate work experience we are unlikely to consider any applicants under the age of 25.

3. How long does it usually take to succeed?

The full-time programme takes 12 months of study. Our Executive Part-time and Modular programmes take two years.

4. What fees,etc. do I have to consider?

Tuition fees for the full-time programme are 23,000 GBP (37,000 Euros) and you would need to allow a further 10,000 GBP (16,000 Euros) for accommodation and living costs.
Total tuition fees for the part-time and modular programmes are 30,000 GBP (48,000 Euros). Accommodation costs for the two-year part-time programme would range from 2,000 - 7,000 GBP (3,200 - 11,200 Euros) and for the two-year modular option they would be around 7,200 GBP (11,500 Euros).

5. How many applicants per student do you have?

Approx. 3:1

6. How many places for foreigners do you offer?

We don't have a set quota, but around 50% of our full-time MBA students are international.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Answer Open University Business School:

Hi Herbert,

Good straightforward questions which I will address one by one though you will find that, for the Open University Business School many of them are not that relevant due to our open access policies and the specific model of supported open learning we provide. Your main limitation is that for direct access to the MBA one needs to be 27 years of age and have 5 years work/management related experience.

1. is it possible to enter your program with a German diploma of a University of Applied Sciences?

Yes, a Diplom from a German University is accepted by us for entry to the OUBS MBA.

2. What are the main conditions for entering (grades, qualifications, TOEFL, etc.)

The main condition for direct entry to the OUBS MBA is that you hold a qualification equivalent to a BA or BSc (Hons) in the UK. Being the MBA for the Open University Business School we also have an open access entry route which require you to study first the Professional Certificate In Management (1 year) and then the Professional Diploma in Management (1 year). The Open University's ethos strongly beliefs in providing open access qualifications for people who, for some reason were not able to study at university without compromising on high academic standards. Important is that a student for direct entry into the MBA will need to be 27 years of age and have 5 years of relevant work/management related experience.

3. How long does it usually take to succeed?

Stage 1 of the OUBS MBA is 1 year, unless you take the open access route when it becomes 2 years. Stage 2 of the MBA can be done in a further two years.

4. What fees, etc. do I have to consider?

You would be looking at a total programme fee of between £11,000 and £12,000 depending on when you start and finish. Payment is on a course by course basis.

5. How many applicants per student do you have?

With the OUBS MBA there is no competition for entry. If you meet the entry requirements you can register.

6. How many places for foreigners do you offer?

There is no limitation on foreign students on our courses as students study from their home country.

Very best wishes

Answer Warwick Business School

Dear Herbert

Thank you for your interest in the Warwick MBA. Your Diplom degree will certainly count towards being eligible for a Warwick MBA.

Here at WBS, we regard the MBA as a post-experience qualification, so we also require 4 years' relevant employment experience, that is, work at a supervisory or managerial level, before commencing study for an MBA. For full-time study, we also require a good balanced GMAT score.

Regarding English skills, we look for a score of 7.0 in IELTS, and in TOEFL a score of around 620 (paper-based) or 260 (computer based).

The Warwick MBA is offered through 4 study modes: full-time (12 months); distance learning (3-4 years, but can be extended up to 8 years): executive - evening or modular study (3 years). Students are able to change to a different mode of study if their circumstances change. For instance, a Distance Learning student from the USA may find him or herself posted to the Midlands in England, so would be able to study in the evening here at campus.

The fees are set out below: Full-time £21,000 Executive evening: £5000 per year (over 3 years) Executive modular: £5,800 per year (over 3 years) Distance learning: Parts A-C £3270, Part D (Project) £1,400 The part-time study modes fees are reviewed annually.

Our full-time MBA has 100 places each year, but we receive around 600 applications. For our part-time study, we try to discuss with each prospective applicant on their suitability and career plans before they apply, so the ratio of applications to places does not apply here.

At present, 58% of our MBA students are from countries outside the UK, with almost 100 countries represented in total.

Yours sincerely,
Diana Holton
Warwick Business School
