  • A minimum of two years’ relevant managerial or professional work experience since undergraduate graduation.  Managerial experience means having responsibility for people and / or functions and / or relevant technical expertise.
  • Candidates without an undergraduate honours degree must demonstrate significant managerial experience. A full description of your experience is essential to show clearly your successful career path and the contribution you can make to the MBA programme.
  • At least two years' experience working in the maritime industry or related sector.
