Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible for the programme?

Individuals must hold a university degree and have a minimum of 2 years' full-time working experience to apply for the programme. The GMAT is also a compulsory requirement for admission. Above all, candidates must demonstrate that they have the commitment, experience, motivation and potential to benefit from and contribute to the programme.

What kind of academic record do I need?

We expect applicants to have a strong basic degree. However, we look at many other aspects of your application such as drive and motivation.

Do I need to come from a finance or business background?

No, we admit students from all background and work experience and look for diverse individuals to enhance the classroom experience.

Do I need to choose between the Part-time and Full-time programme at the time of application?
