Why this course?

The MSc Business & Management (MBM) is a 12-month full-time programme. The MBM is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as a Pre-Experience Masters in Management.

The degree provides you with a solid understanding of how organisations work. You’ll enhance the skills and awareness needed to operate effectively in different types of organisations. The MBM is an excellent choice as a path into business management. It’s also for those looking to gain a competitive edge in today’s job market.

The programme has consistently featured in the Financial Times global masters in management ranking. The current ranking is fifth in the UK and 36th in the world.

The MBM is designed to help you reach your potential as a manager or leader in the organisations of today and tomorrow. We place emphasis on self-development and self-discovery, not just classroom teaching.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/businessmanagement/

You’ll study

There are three areas of focus for study:
1. Understanding the Business – through a sequence of taught classes you’ll gain an insight into the major functional areas of most organisations. You’ll explore what they do and learn the language and techniques they employ in describing their area of the business. Our emphasis is on giving you managerial-relevant insight.

2. Developing Management Potential – the Professional Management Practice class will help you understand the key skills needed to be successful in your career. It introduces key skills required for a career in management and helps you to identify and address your development needs.

3. Building a Career Focus – individual classes give you exposure to different areas of the business. The elective classes and the MBM project allow you to decide what kind of focus you’re going to take in your degree and beyond. The Spring and Summer School elective classes bring together postgraduates from across the business school helping you to build networks and knowledge.

Study abroad

The MBM programme includes a number of elective classes from which students will choose. For those who are interested in studying abroad, the 'Managing in Europe' elective class provides the opportunity to do this with classes taught at Toulouse Business School, France.

Facilities

The MBM is delivered in our award-winning building on Cathedral Street in the heart of Glasgow's city centre. Designed to meet the demands of corporate clients and those studying at a postgraduate level, it’s purpose-built to facilitate study, interaction and work.

A modern lecture room in the Business School building will be your base for the year. With good social space conveniently located next to where you’re taught, you’ll find this a comfortable area from which to work. There’s campus-wide Wi-Fi and good quality catering facilities nearby.

Our Business School provides a number of services including:
- a free printing allowance
- a dedicated IT support team

The School's Business Information Service ensures that you can keep up-to-date with the latest trends and issues affecting the business world. The databases available are a particularly powerful tool, providing a rich array of information including:
- market reports
- financial analysis
- international news
- trade journals

Accreditation

The MBM is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as a Pre-Experience Masters in Management.

Student competitions

Each year, the programme runs the ‘Best project award’ where the best final project wins a monetary award. The Dean also awards letters of commendation to other top projects selected by supervisors.
Individuals are also encouraged to participate in university and international competitions. For example, previous students have competed and won key awards at the G20 Youth Summit and Strathclyde Enterprise Pathway competition.

Conversion to the MBA

As a graduate of the MBM, you’ll be offered the opportunity to convert your qualification to the prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.

To take advantage of this opportunity you must apply within five years of graduating and have acquired sufficient work experience and exposure to management processes and issues.

The conversion syllabus can be completed through any route of the MBA. That includes studying in Strathclyde Business School’s centres around the world and the flexible learning option. Most people choose to undertake the conversion while continuing their career by undertaking self-study supported by weekend workshops.

For those who started their MBM after September 2010, the conversion syllabus is:
- The Reflective Practitioner
- Exploring the International Business Environment Strategy Analysis & Evaluation
- Making Strategy
- Strategic Consulting in Practice
- Two elective classes
- MBA Project

Conversion generally takes 18 months on a part-time basis.

Pre-Masters preparation course

The Pre-Masters Programme is a preparation course for international students (non EU/UK) who do not meet the entry requirements for a Masters degree at the University of Strathclyde. The Pre-Masters programme provides progression to a number of degree options.

You can also complete the online application form , or to ask a question please fill in the enquiry form and talk to one of our multi-lingual Student Enrolment Advisers today.

Learning & teaching

Classes differ significantly from traditional formal lectures. Academic staff maximise opportunities for class discussion and debate about how organisations are tackling real-life business issues and whether their approaches are appropriate in other contexts.

You’ll often be given individual or group-based research tasks to be fed back in class. This emphasis upon practical skills gives you a greater understanding of what’s happening in a wide range of organisational contexts. It also helps you to be able to formulate relevant, practical, responses to the complex issues.

Our teaching is focused on helping you to develop the high level of personal and interpersonal skills that employers are looking for. You’ll find that, from your very first day, we’ll be there helping you to find effective ways to manage yourself, while getting the best from those you're working with.

Through workshops, and in classes, we’ll help you to perfect your ability to communicate the insights you get from the analytical techniques we teach and the research you undertake.

- Living case study
The Living case study is an innovative way of bringing participants to an understanding of what it means to deal with organisational issues at a managerial level. The exercise casts participants in the role of a graduate trainee who has been asked by the management director to analyse the behaviours in the company and present to the board a way forward.
Management consultancy firm Accenture regularly attend the final presentations. These presentations showcase the professionalism of the cohort and the analytic skills they have acquired through this and the other classes that make up the syllabus. Accenture’s experienced consultants recognise the type of issues and behaviours recreated in the simulation and provide hints and tips on dealing with problem situations and communicating ideas to executives.

Guest lectures

All classes on the MBM programme have a number of guest speakers from industry. You're also regularly invited to Business School industry lectures and networking events.

Assessment

The course is assessed through written assignments, group and individual projects, exams and presentations.

Careers

The degree opens up a range of exciting career possibilities. In broad terms, our graduates’ career paths follow one of four directions:
1. Entry into a management programme within national and multi-national organisations. Recent graduates have joined organisations such as: Accenture, KPMG, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, Facebook, Google, Eon, PricewaterhouseCoopers.

2. Entry into a more specific programme where it’s the combination of first degree, or work experience, and the MBM that distinguishes them from the competition. Graduates have been recruited by such prestigious firms as: Ford Motor Company, Royal Bank of Scotland, Ubisoft, Cisco Systems, BSkyB, Schlumberger.

3. Many have taken up an opportunity within their family’s business, developing the business to take advantage of the opportunities presented by today’s environment.

4. Others are pursuing their dream of becoming an entrepreneur and building their own successful business.
