Master's programme in Management

MSc with a major in Management | 1 year | 60 credits

Admission requirements

Academic requirements

An undergraduate degree (BA/BSc) with a major in a subject matter other than business administration or management.

English language requirements

Strong English language communication skills are crucial to gain the full benefit of the programmes we offer. However, meeting the minimum English language test requirements, does not guarantee admission. A majority of students accepted to this programme submit test scores corresponding to IELTS band 7.0.

What are our minimum requirements?
We require a good command of the English language, both spoken and written. The English language entry requirement is the equivalent of English studies at upper secondary level in Sweden (gymnasium), called English 6/English Course B.

For international students, this can be demonstrated in various ways. You can demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain upper secondary (high school) studies, certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test.

We prefer candidates to take the IELTS test where possible. We accept the following tests and minimum scores:

  • IELTS score of 6.5 (with no section less than 5.5)
  • TOEFL paper-based score of 4.5 (scale 1-6) in written test and a total score of 575
  • TOEFL internet based score of 20 (scale 0-30) in written test and a total score of 90 

Find out more about the English language requirements at the University Admissions website.
