The course provides an in-depth grounding in charity governance, management and finance, and will provide options that can be tailored towards professional individual needs.

The Charity Sector periodically receives bad press coverage on the lack of professionalism within the industry. This programme is specifically designed to redress this issue and provide a pathway for career development within the non-profit sector and to cover the range of specialist knowledge not found within traditional MBA or postgraduate management programmes

Why St Mary's?

The Programme at St Mary's University covers a wide range of topics and final year specialisations not found in any other UK University. Students on the programme get to network and share ideas with managers and senior managers from a variety of both national and international charities.

The MA in Charity Management will provide an in-depth grounding in charity governance and finance, and will provide options that can be tailored towards professional individual needs.

Participation in the course will enable students to demonstrate an awareness of social, political, legal, economic and technological issues affecting national and international charitable organisations.

All teaching staff on the course have either worked or are currently working within the charity sector; they have a total of over 50 years of experience in the sector. Consequently, they bring with them a wealth of real-life experience.

The programme has also been attracting an increasing number of international students.

Career Prospects

Students on the programme, both past and present, have successfully experienced promotion within the not-for-profit sector. Several alumni have become CEOs of their charities. The programme has been rated No.1 in the UK for employability amongst equivalent specialist charity courses by Destinations Interactive.

To ensure that students benefit from the Master's programme, it is advisable that they work (paid or unpaid) for a charitable organisation whilst on the course.

For those students not currently engaged with a non-profit organisation, we have prepared a list of charities that offer voluntary positions. There are no guarantees that voluntary positions will be available.

The MSc International Management and Leadership was designed to be a vibrant and innovative course that focuses on best practice in management and leadership while developing an international focus. QMU’s mission is ‘to enhance the wellbeing of individuals and the communities we serve through socially and economically relevant education and research’. The MSc reflects this mission through its underpinning and distinctive identity which focuses not only on contemporary management practice but also on community engagement and service. A unique aspect of the course is the replacement of the traditional dissertation with a student-led project. You will design, lead and reflect upon a project attached to a community, charity, or third sector enterprise. The context chosen for these projects reflects our staff’'s opinion that the responsibility of our graduates as managers and leaders extends not just to boardrooms and shareholders, but also to communities and our wider society.

The MSc International Management and Leadership with Events route was added to enhance the knowledge and skills of those interested in a leadership role within a public or private organisation. Events have become a key tool for both organisers and participants to network, promote, and sell their products and services. Their popularity and scale around the world means that individuals with the knowledge, skills, and ability to lead in this field are in high-demand by private companies and public organisations seeking managers capable of helping them to achieve their goals in this fast growing and dynamic industry. Throughout this programme there will be an emphasis on developing a wide range of managerial skills that are aligned with QMU’s extensive knowledge of current issues in events management.

About the course

Join our diverse academic community for a year of challenges and collaborations that will help you change and shape your career trajectory. Our students are driven designers, architects, visual and fine artists, performing artists, writers and others who work in the creative and cultural industries. Our faculty members are a lively mix of management specialists and creatives. All of us are passionate about doing work that has a real impact on society.

This unique programme is designed to advance your career as a solo practitioner, an entrepreneur or a member of a larger organisation within the creative economy. During the 12-month programme, you will:

- Build knowledge of business and management within the context of creative and cultural industries
- Gain new methods of learning, creating and managing to improve your career success and satisfaction – in socially responsible and meaningful ways
- Develop a diverse international network of peers, mentors and industry professionals across creative and cultural fields

The interdisciplinary MSc in Management and Entrepreneurship in the Creative Economy is built around the unique learning styles and goals of creative people like you. Designed and taught by Audencia Business School and The Glasgow School of Art’s Institute of Design Innovation (InDI), each module has been created specifically for this programme and integrates a creative mix of teaching and learning methods for both business and arts/design education.

Your programme combines the design approaches and studio (project-based) teaching methods of The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) with the internationally recognised, innovative, collaborative and responsible business education of Audencia Business School. The programme includes:

- Modules designed and taught collaboratively by faculty members at Audencia and the GSA
- Study in Nantes, France, a vibrant, modern city with old-world flair
- Two-week International Winter School in the inspirational Scottish Highlands
- Real-world consulting or research project
- Optional internship in a creative industry
- Collaborative and creative live projects both online and offline, studio (project-based) work and more

Audencia and the Glasgow School of Art

Rather than putting pre-existing management and creative classes on a schedule to form a so-called “new” programme, Audencia and the GSA’s Institute of Design Innovation have jointly designed a customised programme of classes and projects that respond to emerging trends, circumstances and opportunities within the global creative economy.

Every aspect of the programme combines learning in business and management with creative processes and people. The programme is located in Nantes, France, but the GSA faculty members teach one-third of the classes – and the two-week International Winter School, which brings international design schools together in Scotland, is a highlight of the programme.

Shaping a creative career:

Shaping a creative career is an ongoing process which requires the will and ability to keep learning and re-skilling, a good knowledge of yourself and your values and a set of practical tools that will help to enhance your career. This module will mark the start of your journey to design a creative career that is sustainable, enjoyable and fulfilling.

Mapping the creative economy:

Learn what it really means to be a part of the creative economy. Mapping the Creative Economy offers an overview of the development of the cultural and creative industries and their relationship to the creative economy.

Reimagining management:

This module covers the following topics:

Building skills to act as bridge between the worlds of creativity and business, you’ll work on a real-life collaborative project where you and your peers will be faced with design, managerial and entrepreneurial challenges.

You’ll learn by doing – working together with a diverse group of students, industry professionals and academic staff.

This experiential work will serve to further develop your career project, as well as help you internalise core entrepreneurial skills and knowledge in an authentic way. Here, you can make mistakes and learn from them in a safe environment.

Creating value in the creative economy:

To have knowledge is a good thing – but to spread it is even more rewarding. During this period, you will be asked to increase societal awareness of the possibilities within the creative economy. How you communicate your knowledge about the creative economy is up to you: conference, digital project, charity work, radio programme, etc. Get creative and begin establishing yourself as a subject-matter expert.

Designing today:

Designing Today will help you develop a critical appreciation of the role of design practice and of designers as drivers of social, economic and organisational change. Your final project will be an exhibition. Topics include:

- Exploring service design and organisational design tools and methods
- Seeing social interaction as value creation
- Considering the contemporary role of designers in the area of management: industrial, experience and knowledge economies
- Understanding design not simply as the manufacture of industrial artefacts, but as an activity that creates value

Designing research:

Within Designing Research, you’ll develop an understanding of user-centred design as an ethnographic and engagement-led process of iterative development built upon collaborative working practices and creative refinement and resolution that responds to a variety of contexts. You’ll be evaluated via a project process journal and reflective writing. Components include:

- Formulating design enquiries (open-ended, empirically validated and discursive) that create the possibility of new knowledge and innovative practices or behaviours
- Methods: critical observation, ethnography, STEP analysis, future casting
- Participation in InDI’s two-week International Winter School to gain international, multi-disciplinary teaching and learning experience and develop a personal and professional network of practitioners, researchers and scholars

From idea to application:

From Idea to Application will help you internalise design practice as the material manifestation and evolution of value propositions. You’ll move from collaborative concept generation to product proposal, refinement and validation as understood across a variety of value regimes: manufacture and supply chain, branding and communication, user experience, etc.

The focus will be on the blend of industrial and digital artefacts, experience of use and the cognitive and narrative dimensions of innovative products and their collaborative production.

You’ll be evaluated through a project presentation and exhibition.

International winter school:

Led by the Institute of Design Innovation, the Winter School is an exemplar of our progressive teaching style and offers a method of research and learning that is both bespoke and distinct. The Winter School brings together international students and academics to fashion a new role for design in the exploration of a contemporary challenge during an intense two-week period.

Leading design academics and students from Köln International School of Design (KISD) and Copenhagen’s KADK (The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation) will join students and academics of the GSA, Audencia and other institutions from around the globe, forming an international network of diverse disciplines.

This component of the course offers a unique opportunity to examine current issues in a transcultural environment at the GSA’s stunning new campus in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Research and teaching carried out during the Winter School benefit organisations and communities as well as students.

This unique course is one of the only management courses in Europe to focus on the specific needs of the staff, trustees and volunteers working in international NGOs - particularly those whose activities are focused on working with the poor and vulnerable in the developing world. It is aimed at those currently working in the sector, but also at people exploring a career shift into the international development sector and consultants looking to develop their expertise in the NGO sector.

What sets the Cass Business School NGO Management course apart is that it is:

• Future-facing: The course focuses on the rapidly evolving context of international development. It explores the implication for NGOs of such trends as the changing role of civil society, altering aid flows, increased funding for humanitarian and security work, shifting North-South relations, the impact of new digital technologies, the moves to greater collaboration and the increasing influence of the private sector in the development process.

• Both academic and applied: The course combines the academic rigour of an internationally respected management school with a highly practical and applied approach. The course is delivered by NGO Management practitioners with decades of first-hand experience and ongoing involvement in the sector. In addition we have guest lectures by senior NGO staff or consultants presenting the latest issues and exploring the real-world challenges they face. The shadowing exercise, a key component of the course, provides students with a unique insight into the day-to-day realities of NGO management.

• A rich learning environment: The course lecturers are among the highly regarded in the University and have been awarded prizes for the quality of their teaching.

The course has been developed in partnership with leading INGOs and BOND (the UK-NGO network). It is one of the five postgraduate courses offered by Cass’s Business School’s Centre for Charity Effectiveness. This is one of the only centres of excellence in Europe offering a full range of latest research, education, training and consultancy geared to the needs of voluntary sector managers and leaders.

Format

The course is taught on a part-time basis and is taught over a period of twelve months. The Postgraduate Diploma consists of four core modules that all students take and are common to all the Centre’s postgraduate courses. These core modules provide the essential underpinning of management skills for the specialist courses. Upon successful completion of the diploma you can continue to the MSc Programme.

The MSc requires completion of the Research Methods for Managers module. This is followed by either: a further six months of personal, supervised research and the presentation of a 15,000-word research-based dissertation.
