If you’ve still got your sights set on a Master in Management in 2024, you’re not too late to secure your spot for September entry.

A Master in Management program offers essential skills in business strategy and leadership, making it a pivotal step to advance your career.

While some programs have rolling deadlines, others close as early as June 23, 2024. So, if you're aiming to secure a place in a top Master in Management program, now is the time to act.

Here are the top 10 Master in Management programs you can still apply to this summer.

10 Top Master in Management Programs You Can Still Apply To For September 2024 

1. EDHEC Business School Master in Management

The EDHEC Business School Master in Management program has an application deadline of June 23, 2024.

Ranked 11th by the Financial Times, this program is conducted entirely in English. Non-native speakers must submit English language proficiency test scores, such as the Cambridge Test of English.

Applicants need a bachelor’s degree and a high score on the GMAT, GRE, or—for Indian applicants—the CAT. The application process also includes an online video interview.

2. IESE Business School

The IESE Master in Management offers flexible admissions with applications accepted on a rolling basis, allowing you to apply whenever you’re ready.

Don’t worry if your GMAT or GRE score isn’t as high as you hoped—while important, it’s not the only factor an admissions team will consider. Other important qualities include your personality, motivations, goals, and leadership abilities.

Given that the program is taught in English, non-native speakers will need to complete the IESE admissions test to demonstrate proficiency.

3. IE Business School MiM degree

IE Business School in Madrid offers a 15-month Master in Management program with two start dates each year, in January and September.

Open to graduates from any discipline, applicants need a bachelor’s degree and must take either the IE Global Admissions Test or the GMAT/GRE.

The admissions process features a personal interview, which can be conducted in-person or online with a member of the admissions team. With rolling admissions, you can apply whenever you’re ready.

4. UCD Smurfit MSc in Management

The UCD Smurfit MSc in Management welcomes candidates from diverse academic backgrounds, but you’ll need to have graduated with a minimum second-class honor (or equivalent) in your bachelor’s.

If you’re a non-native English speaker, you’ll need to provide English-language certification unless your bachelor’s degree was taught in English. 

However, applicants who don't meet the standard entry requirements may still be considered based on work experience or other qualifications. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but you'll want to apply as early as possible.

5. ESMT Berlin

ESMT Berlin offers a Master in Global Management program with two application rounds still open. 

While the second round for student visa applicants ended on June 1, late applications will still be considered. The third round has a soft deadline of July 31, with possible consideration for later submissions.

To be eligible for the program, you need a bachelor’s degree with excellent grades or be in the final year of your bachelor’s degree studies. The application also requires proof of English language proficiency, evidence of strong quantitative skills, and essays.

6. Vlerick Business School Master’s in Management

Ranked in the top 10 for overall student satisfaction, Vlerick Business School welcomes applicants from diverse undergraduate backgrounds to their Masters in International Management and Strategy.

The Belgian business school accepts applications on a rolling basis. However, non-EU students requiring a visa are encouraged to apply by April 30 for the September intake, with a final deadline of June 30. EU students can apply until August 11.

Admission to the program follows a structured three-step process. It begins with completing the Vlerick Online Test and submitting GMAT or GRE scores. Successful candidates proceed to a motivational interview, followed by a knowledge interview.

7. NEOMA Business School

NEOMA Business School’s Master in Management program boasts a 98% employment rate within three months of graduation and a diverse cohort with 51% female representation.

To be admitted for September entry, you’ll need to apply before the deadline of June 26, 2024.

The program requires applicants to hold a bachelor’s degree and complete an application process. Prospective students can choose to study in French or English, so you’ll need to prove proficiency in your chosen language.

8. Warwick Business School

Warwick Business School’s MSc Management program has an upcoming application deadline for July 2024—although it's advised to apply early as places may fill up quickly.

Students come from diverse academic backgrounds, but if your previous studies are related to management, you may be limited to certain elective choices. For example, if your bachelor’s is in economics, you might be limited to non-economics electives.

Regardless of what you studied for your bachelor’s, you’ll need a 2.1 grade (or equivalent) and English proficiency to qualify for the program.

9. Grenoble Ecole de Management

Until August 30th 2024, Grenoble Ecole de Management is accepting online applications for their Master in Management program.

Candidates come from varied academic backgrounds, but a high score on the GMAT, GRE or TAGE-MAGE is a great boost for your applicant profile. You’ll also need to prove English fluency, provide three short essays along with your application, and go through an obligatory interview to explain your motivations for the program.

International students requiring a visa should verify requirements with their local French consulate.

10. Trinity Business School

Trinity Business School at Trinity College Dublin is still accepting applications for their MSc in Management program. Applications and places are reviewed and offered on a rolling basis, so it's a good idea to submit your application as soon as possible due to the high volume of applicants. 

To be eligible, you’ll need at least a 2.1 honors degree (or equivalent), two academic references, and proof of English language proficiency. While a GMAT score isn’t required when you apply, it may be requested in some cases.

A leading Master in Management can be a strategic move for a thriving career in business but you’ll want to act quickly to secure your place for 2024 entry.
