How can I prepare for the academic challenge since I graduated more than six years ago?

As OneMBA is for seasoned professionals, most applicants have been away from school for many years. We encourage you to review and improve your knowledge of statistics, economics, finance, and accounting before the Programme begins. The greatest challenge facing many students is balancing school, home and work related responsibilities. The OneMBA curriculum is demanding, but is also personally and professionally rewarding.
