Default Re: Full-time MBA courses in Britain

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a post graduate qualification at Masters Level in business and management. It is primarily intended for potential high-fliers with managerial experience or students aspiring for a career in management. Most full time MBA courses are very intensive and students should be prepared for a heavy work load. Most courses have participative learning methods in addition to traditional lectures, group presentations, practical projects and consultancy work in companies.

Duration of the course
Full time MBA courses in the UK last one year i.e. 12 months consisting of 9 months of taught course and 3 months of dissertation or project work. Part time and distance learning courses vary in length.

Entry requirements for MBA
You do not need business studies as your first degree but you are normally required to have some appropriate work experience, usually two to five years. The average age of the full-time MBA student is at present 28 years. Work experience is important. Graduate Management Admissions
Test (GMAT), Test of English as a Foreign Language (T0EFL) / International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores are also required.

English language requirements
Overseas students applying for MBA courses are expected to have a good command over written and spoken English. Many institutions require proof of competence in the form of good marks in one of English language tests e g TOEFL, Cambridge Proficiency etc. Candidates should check with the concerned business school to find out their exact requirements.

Other courses
Some institutions run Masters degree in management and business which are almost identical to MBA courses. These are usually called M.Sc. or M.A. and some others also conduct short courses. You may
contact the nearest British Council Division Library or British Library for more details.

The student who are planning to go for GMAT should note that from June 2012 onwards the GMAT test takers will appear for the new ‘Next Generation GMAT’; in which a 30 minute long ‘Integrated Reasoning Section‘ will be attached to the existing GMAT format.

Integrated Reasoning Section is designed to measure applicant’s ability to evaluate information from multiple sources. The section will be concentrated on data interpretation which is presented graphically and analysis of different types of information to evaluate possible outcomes. These skills are considered necessary to respond to the complex challenges presented in business school programs and in today’s information rich business rich environment.

However the overall length of the GMAT exam (i.e three and a half hours) will not change. The Integrated Reasoning section will be added and the Analytical Writing assessment will be streamlined to include only one 30-minute essay prompt instead of two.
