Entry requirements

You have a good chance of being admitted to the MBA programme if you have the following:

  • An undergraduate degree in business and management or a similar subject from a university or university of applied sciences (180 ECTS credits), or
  • An undergraduate degree in another discipline with an interest in business and/or entrepreneurship and managerial experience (please upload a CV with your application)
  • You can apply also without an undergraduate degree if you can demonstrate 10 years of managerial experience. (Sometimes it can be shorter if you have post-secondary level vocational studies or university studies.)

Not all undergraduate degree certificates have an overall grade or classification. Normally, a level equivalent to the British first or second class would be required (medium-level grade in Finland).

  • You have an IELTS overall score of 6.5, writing at a minimum of 6.0 and no other section below 5.5

  • You received at least cum laude (C) in English A in the Finnish matriculation exam (ylioppilaskirjoitukset)*
