An applicant for admission to the Master's Degree shall:

  1. hold a relevant bachelor's degree with first or second class honours awarded by a tertiary education institution recognized for this purpose by the University*; or have obtained an equivalent qualification; or have provided satisfactory evidence of academic and professional attainment.  The equivalence of academic and professional qualification will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

*Applicants with a bachelor's degree and who have studied Economics, Information Systems Management, and Statistics at University level are considered business-related degree holders.  Applicants with a non-business first degree, and those without a course in Marketing or Economics have to complete a pre-entry bridging course prior to the start of the MSc programme.

**The English language requirement is applicable only to applicants graduating from universities with a non-English medium of instruction. (Note: For an applicant with English test score just below the minimum specified above, such as a band score of 6.0 or above (but below 6.5) in IELTS or a score of 430 or above (but below 450) in CET Band 6, there is flexibility for the academic unit offering the programme to use interview or other means to decide and admit the applicant on a case-by-case basis.)


Pre-entry Bridging Course

Applicants with a non-business degree, and those without a course in Marketing or Economics are required to pass a pre-entry bridging course prior to the start of the MSc programme. The content of the pre-entry bridging course is described in the programme curriculum. Students may also satisfy the pre-entry requirements by taking equivalent courses from other recognised undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The pre-entry bridging course is offered about one month before the start of the MSc programme.
