The Pre-MBA programme offers a student based in Oxford the necessary preparation for entering a challenging MBA course at a UK university. It is designed for students who already have a first degree, but feel that they are not yet ready to begin their MBA studies. This could be because they have not been involved in any formal study for a number of years and prefer to first undertake a period of preparatory study. Or, it could be that the first degree subject was in an area other than business.
