Entry requirements

To apply for the EMBA programme you will normally need to have the following:

  • a good first degree (typically at least a 2nd class honours) from a recognised university, or a degree-equivalent professional qualification
  • at least five years' professional/managerial work experience
  • two good references from your current employer, one being from your immediate line manager
  • a satisfactory interview with a member of Lancaster's admissions team

If you meet the requirements above but do not have a degree, you may be admitted subject to satisfactory completion of the Lancaster EMBA Admissions Essay and interview with the Programme Director. Please contact us for further details.

English language requirements

If your first language is not English and you have not previous studied in English at degree level, you will normally have to demonstrate your English language capabilities – for example, by achieving a well-balanced IELTS score of at least 7.0, or a PTE score of at least 70.
