Thank you for your question.

We require at least 2-3 years experience after your undergraduate degree. The average is 5-6 years and the average age is 28. However, we are aware that in Germany your udergraduate degrees take longer than the 3 years standard for the UK and USA. Therefore, use 2-3 years as a guide as to the level needed.

Thanks

Answer from Warwick:

Thanks for your enquiry. We believe that the MBA should be post-experience as well as post-graduate, and we therefore attach great importance to the management skills and business experience that applicants have already acquired. These form the platform on which the new business perspectives and management tools of your MBA would be built. For this reason, therefore, we are unable to consider applications from those without a minimum of 3 years work experience (4 for our full-time variant).

Answer from Cranfield:

I'm afraid that Cranfield does not accept any students without work experience, however good their academic qualifications. The MBA is designed as a post experience qualifcation.

Answer from OUBS:

To get the maximum benefit from studying with the Open University Business School MBA students need to be in employment. The MBA involves relating theory to practice and this can best be done by individuals who can apply their study to situations in their organisations. OUBS students are normally expected to be aged 27 or have relevant work experience. (Visit www.oubs.open.ac.uk)

There are many good MBA courses available that do not require work-related experience and take students straight from BA studies.
