Abstract: This paper discusses the relationship between admissions approaches which rely exclusively upon standard academic criteria to select students for Business and Management programmes and classroom diversity. It draws on a small-scale research project carried out with postgraduate Business students at a British university in 2003 and 2004. The empirical data identifies a wide range of underlying notions of key business and management concepts held by students at point of entry to the programme of study. The paper goes on to discuss the complexity of teaching and learning dynamics that result from such diversity and its impact on student performance. In conclusion, the paper proposes a broadening of admissions criteria to take account of both learning transitions and the intercultural learning inherent in such international educational programmes
