Work experience will require validation by the relevant employer and cannot be used both as a means of admission and as the basis of an application for advanced standing. Work experience will be evaluated to assess whether prospective students have demonstrated a verifiable capability in management such that they are enabled to undertake the discipline-specific learning contained in this Masters-level course.
