To whom it may concern: I'm a German student of business administration. My degree won't say Bachelor but "Diplom". Can I enroll in a MBA program when I have a "Diploma" degree? If so, how long will it take to get the MBA degree and how much would it cost?

Once you start your MBA with us it will take three years on average. You can take longer if you need. For a student studying from Germany your fee total will be between £11,000 and £12,000. As you register and pay course by course your fees are spread over the period you study. Very best wishes

Answer Cranfield School of Management

Will your Diplom be a Fachhochschuldiplom? If so, it is comparable to British Bachelor degree standard and we will accept it where an overall mark of Gut has been achieved.

However, our other entry requirements include at least three years' postgraduate work experience.

If you want to study full-time at Cranfield, it will take 12 months and currently the tuition fees 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.

We also offer a modular option which takes two years and is designed for people based outside the UK who want to study on a part-time basis. Participants come to Cranfield for two weeks, four times each year, and complete the rest of the programme using the Internet from wherever they are based in the world.

Total tuition fees for the modular programme are 30,000 GBP (48,000 Euros). Accommodation costs would be around 7,200 GBP (11,500 Euros).

Answer Warwick Business School

Dear Enquirer

Your degree will certainly count towards being eligible to apply to study 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.)

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.

I hope this information is of use to you.

Answer Oxford University

Thank you for your query. I confirm that a good German Diplom would satisfy our academic entry requirements

For your information, to be considered for a place on the Oxford MBA, candidates must be able to demonstrate the following:

Intellectual ability:
A good undergraduate degree or equivalent (German Diplom) is required. Applicants who do not hold such a qualification may be considered, if they have a very strong employment record which demonstrates a high degree of responsibility

All candidates are required to take the GMAT test. Our class average is 672. A high score does not guarantee a place, nor does a lower score automatically disqualify your application. However, as several of the programme's core courses require a high level of quantitative and analytical skills, we do look for evidence of these in GMAT results

Professional experience and management potential:
Oxford MBA students on average have 5-6 years work experience. An important component of the programme's success is the contribution made from such diverse work experience. We may consider students with less than three years experience, who are able to demonstrate a high level of maturity and combined with evidence of leadership ability

Team skills:
The ability to work effectively in multi cultural groups is a key component of the MBA programme, and is specifically assessed through two team projects, the New Business Development, and Summer Business Projects. We are therefore looking for candidates who can effectively demonstrate their willingness to be effective team players.
International exposure:
The Oxford MBA class is highly international with 32 nationalities representing the current class of 118 students. A high proportion have already studied or worked outside their native country, and most speak more than two languages. We seek students who are culturally sensitive and actively want international exposure

Ability to contribute to the Oxford MBA experience:
We seek students who will actively contribute to the programme by sharing their views, experiences, and skills. We look for maturity, a high degree of motivation, and strong interpersonal and communication skills.

English language ability:
The programme is taught in English. Candidates for whom English is not their first language are required to take either the TOEFL (minimum 600) or IELTs test

3. The Oxford MBA programme is an intensive 12 month course

4. Current fees are:
Course fee - £19,600
College fee - £2,000
Books - £500
Laptop - £2,000
Living expenses - £8,000

I hope that this is helpful. Please contact me, or visit www.sbs.ox.ac.uk, if you have any further queries

Answer Ashridge Business School

Candidates graduating in Germany with a Diploma can enrol on MBA Programmes. However, to enrol at Ashridge, you need also to have five years' business experience. The programmes is offered either over a one or a two year period and both options are modular in structure. The cost is the same for both options - £30,000 - which includes tuition, learning materials, case studies, photocopying, use of the Learning Resource Centre, virtual access to the Learning Resource Centre when off-site, food during modules and the Ashridge's leisure facilities (gym, swimming pool, tennis courts, etc).

Candidates who self fund and take the one year option, can expect to negotiate a consultancy fee with their host organisation (all candidates are attached to an organisation for the duration of the Programme as assignment and project work is live and delivers tangible benefits to an organisation). The average consultancy fee for project work is £15,000 and this goes some way to offsetting the cost of the Programme. Candidates should not rely on this consultancy fee when enrolling on the Programme, but should look on it as a bonus.
