Entry requirements

It's both academic and practical...it really brings together multiple facets of the learning experience together in a short period of time.
Lola Banjo, Strategic Innovation Executive, Salesforce 

Executive Education Courses are taught to the School's high standard and are therefore academically rigorous. Participants are expected to be fluent in English, with a good first degree in a relevant subject. 

As an executive programme, experience in the workplace is a key requirement. Most of our participants have more than 10 years' experience but we will consider fast-track candidates with a minimum of two years' professional experience. Additionally, some courses have specific prerequisites which are listed in the course description.

Requirements in brief

  • Fluency in English
  • Undergraduate degree
  • Professional experience (see above)
  • Demonstration of meeting course prerequisites where applicable (see course descriptions)
