Work experience less than required


My total work experience upon graduation from university is only 1.5years, any idea if I have a chance at Durham's MBA?

Not until you have three years' work experience with a high degree of responsibility. Their MSc programmes are designed for applicants like you.

I echo this advice. You'd be wasting your time doing an MBA with such little work experience. An MBA is only meanigful after you've got a few years work under your belt.

Thank you everyone for the advice! Greatly appreciate if you can evaluate my profile and give me a rough idea on which universities in UK that I stand a chance in for MSc Management programmes?

I'm 24 this year, graduated from University of Melbourne. We don't go by the GPA system, my average upon graduation is 66%, held key leadership position in non-profit organisation during college days. Interned at shipping company, Citibank, BDO, and now working at a agricultural trading firm. I've not taken the GMAT.

Hoping to attend masters in London, will I be good enough for Cass?

I wouldn't suggest you apply for the Cass MBA program - in which students have eight years of experience, on average. However, the school's MSc in Management program feels like a good fit for you at this point, as it does not require work experience.

I'm not sure how your average grades would convert to GPA, but if they're on the lower end you might want to consider taking the GMAT - although the MSc doesn't require it for graduation, a strong score could help you balance out a low GPA.
