Imperial Weekend vs Full Time Entry Requirements 2.1 or 2.2?


Hi all,
Bit of background - I'm a senior PM working in Aerospace (+8 years exp) in London I'm currently browsing and researching MBA programs to see what fits me.

I have a 2:2 Bachelors, is an MBA in a triple accredited Business School just a dream that I should let go of now? If it is 0% chance of admission what course would you recommend to top me up as I am seriously prepared to do what it takes!

Also I was browsing Imperial courses and noted the Full-time has an entry requirement of 2.2 whereas the Weekend has a requirement of 2.1. Does any one know the real reason for this? The courses must be by in large near identical so I couldn't wrap my head around it.

thank you for replies in advance!

I don't see this requirement for a 2:1 on the weekend MBA page.

Hi Duncan,
I've just checked and the requirement I read is on their standard website (this forum won't let me link for some reason). If you go to Imperial.ac.uk then click study -> courses for 2021-2022 navigate to MBA weekend and full and the entry requirement 2.1/2.2 respectively is on their website. However you're right in that if you go to their Imperal.ac.uk/Business-School website (which is a different layout) it does say: - "
A good undergraduate degree from a recognised university or the international equivalent". so we were both right! :)


Assuming the Business-school is the gospel, can you be honest with me what are my chances of getting in with a 2.2? is it 1%, 10% or 0%? What I'm getting at is this - will my application to a triple accredited London Business school even be considered even if I have good work exp and a ~700 GMAT score.Thank you,

It's much easier to get into the part-time programmes. I was admitted to the LBS EMBA with great work experience, a 640 GMAT and a really weak undergar degree.
