Question

During that three year programm I gained 1,5 years working experience and could visit places like Shanghai or Hong Kong during the studies. Im very interested in joining an MBA-programm for improving career opportunities, since many of my colleagues abroad only told me the best about this type of postgraduate studies. Therefore Im interested, if I do need further working experience and if the BBA from the Open University is suitable for the application.
Dear Sir/Madame,

I will obtain a german degree from a university of cooperative education. Besides that, the students at our school are offered a "bachelor with honours in business administration" from the open university in London.

Answer from Cranfield:

Dear Andrei

The BBA from the Open University would give you the academic qualification required for the Cranfield MBA. However, I'm afraid that work experience gained during a three year programme would not count. You will need to gain three years' postgraduate work experience to be considered for the Cranfield programme. The MBA is designed to build on the experience of the participants, and you would not gain the maximum benefit from your studies until you have experience to relate to.

Good luck in your future career.

As you will see, we are looking for a good undergraduate degree or equivalent as well as work experience, good GMAT, references, essays etc. All our requirements are of equal importance, and if you feel you do not quite meet one of our requirements, then we would be looking for compensating factors within the rest of your application.

I can confirm that the 2004-2005 admissions will be structured in stages and we will process complete applications received on one of the following two remaining deadlines: 19 March 2004 and 28 May 2004.

Please confirm if you wish to receive an MBA application and brochure pack and we will forward this to you as soon as possible.

The Oxford MBA is a one year, full-time, very intensive and challenging course, which starts in October of each year. The Oxford MBA is a general management course with a strong entrepreneurial and financial side. We do not offer specialisation in any subject, but students study a number of electives in the third term of the programme. The Oxford MBA is a very young programme it does not have any association with other Universities in the UK or around the world, and therefore we do not accept or offer any programme transfers or joint courses.

The Said Business School does not offer any distance learning or joint MBA courses. There is, however, a new Executive MBA course and the first students began their studies in January 2004. Please refer to the website www.sbs.ox.ac.uk for further details.

For information on other postgraduate courses offered by the University of Oxford, please, contact the Graduate Admissions at: graduate.admissions@admin.ox.ac.uk

I can confirm that the tuition fee for the 2004-2005 Oxford MBA programme will be £23,000 sterling and the college membership fee will be approximately £2,700. The application processing fee to be sent with the application will be £120 sterling.

For scholarships and financial assistance, please refer to our website using the link http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/html/mba_financial_aid.asp. Among the sources of funding available, please note that we have two new scholarships detailed on our website: the Skoll and Naomi Molson Scholarships.

The entry requirements for the University of Oxford MBA programme are as follows:

- a good undergraduate degree or equivalent. Applicants who do not hold such a qualification may be considered if they have a very strong employment record demonstrating a high degree of responsibility.

- for non-native English speakers, proven proficiency through the International English Language Test Scheme (IELTS) or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

- all candidates are required to take the GMAT test (this is a mandatory requirement for all applicants regardless of their academic or professional background). A high score does not guarantee a place, nor does a low score automatically disqualify an application. For your information, the average GMAT of our current students is 685. For more information on how to arrange to take the GMAT test, please refer to the following website: www.gmac.com

- two references to be submitted on the reference forms or online through Embark.

- written work for assessment as outlined in the guidance notes and on the application form.

- details of work experience (most of our students have three years' work experience or more; we do consider those with less work experience who are able to demonstrate a high level of maturity, combined with evidence of leadership ability)

- three passport size photographs

- official copy of degree transcripts and certificates

- application processing fee

If you feel you meet the above entry requirements, we would be delighted to receive an application from you. Please note that we are unable to give further indication with regards to your suitability for entry to the Oxford MBA without receiving a completed application.

I hope this information is of assistance to you.

Yours sincerely

Ginny Madeley
MBA Admissions Assistant
