Course detail

The teaching hours are designed to have minimal impact on the working day and additional study is undertaken in your own time, so you can study while working, and won't need ask your employer to release you for significant amounts of time. You can, however, still benefit from regular contact with lecturers, tutors and your fellow students.

The CMS is run over two terms, and the DMS over three terms, usually between 4.00pm – 9.00pm, one day a week. The MA course runs over four terms, usually with entry points in September and May.

As the course focuses on core management skills and practice, it is relevant to both public and private enterprises, the profit and not for profit sectors and small to large organisations.

Content

-Parts 1 and 2: CMS/DMS-

The whole DMS course consists of six taught modules in total with students taking two modules per term. The Certificate comprises three modules.

The modules build a general framework related to the core management disciplines and the strategic role of management applied to daily management activity.

-Part 3: MA Management Studies-

When you obtain a pass on the existing Diploma in Management Studies you'll be eligible to proceed to the Masters in Management Studies. Additionally, prospective students who have an equivalent level qualification or who have substantial Senior Management experience may be eligible for entry to the MA via the process of Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). In either case, course members will normally be required to currently hold a management position.

Assessment

Courswork, including written reports, assignments, presentations and case studies. Additionally, for the MA, a Management Research Report is required of 11,000-15,000 words. This typically takes six months to complete.

What can I do next?

Many successful candidates from this course benefit from using their new found qualification and confidence to progress their careers with their current employer, or to use it to secure promotions or new employment elsewhere. Other candidates have used the qualification as a way to improve what they are undertaking within their current role.

The molecular sciences have evolved dramatically in recent decades. It is no longer clear what “should” be called chemistry, or biology, or biochemistry, or materials science, etc., because so much cutting-edge research spans two or more of these traditional disciplines. Read more
The molecular sciences have evolved dramatically in recent decades. It is no longer clear what “should” be called chemistry, or biology, or biochemistry, or materials science, etc., because so much cutting-edge research spans two or more of these traditional disciplines. The Specialized M.Sc. program in Chemical and Molecular Sciences (MS-CMS) is designed to address the needs of the students and faculty engaged in such multi-disciplinary research.

For you, as prospective M.Sc. students, some of the most important features of the program are:
● Open to students with a B.Sc. in science
● You do not have to do your M.Sc. research in the same discipline as your B.Sc.
● 90 ECTS program; 60 ECTS research, 30 ECTS coursework and seminars
● The program is research intensive – you will be expected to do active research in all 3 semesters of your M.Sc. studies.
● You must identify an M.Sc. advisor in advance, and this advisor must agree to accept you into his/her research group.
● The classes you take will be tailored to your individual background and research area.
● The MS-CMS program is closely affiliated with the Graduate School in Chemical and Molecular Sciences (http://www.cmszh.uzh.ch), and offers a fast track into Ph.D. studies.

Applications are expected by September 15 of the previous year for the spring semester and by February 15 of the same year for the fall semester. Single documents that are not available before the application deadline can be filed subsequently. It is recommended to start the program in the fall semester as only then you can at the same time apply for the Alfred Werner Fellowship (https://scs-foundation.ch/index.php/alfred-werner-fund/master-scholarships). See the website for necessary documents.
