Language Policy

The M.S.B. M.B.M. program is taught exclusively in English. Therefore, fluency is a prerequisite. If English is neither your mother tongue nor the language in which your university degree was taught, you will need as a first step either to take our INTERNAL ENGLISH PROFICIENCY TEST or to bring certification of proficiency in English such as the TOEFL or IELTS.


Most students cover the costs of fees and living expenses through a combination of:

  • Family support;
  • Interest-free Loans;
  • Scholarships: MSB grants scholarships for outstanding students who do not afford the tuition fees in order to promote academic excellence and provide greater access to quality education and diversity scholarships to further enhance the cultural and international diversity on the S.M.U. campus.

Application Deadlines

The Master of Business Management Program has two intakes: September Session & January Session (part-time Master).

Application Deadlines

We operate on a rolling basis; however, competition is high so the earlier you gain admission, the more time you will have to secure financing, arrange logistics and most importantly improve your English possibly at the LCI, the Language & Culture Center at SMU.
