The MSc Management programme at Queen’s would be an ideal way of enhancing the utility of your first degree and provides ideal preparation for a wide range of business and management careers.

Designed in consultation with business leaders and managers, the MSc Management degree is aimed at new and recent graduates whose first degree is not in a business discipline and who typically have little or no practical work experience. Previous graduates have been drawn from areas as diverse as psychology, geography, law, politics, computer science and engineering.

Our students develop knowledge across the core business and management disciplines. You will gain appreciation of how business operates in today’s global marketplace and awareness of the linkages between the different functional areas of management (e.g. strategy, marketing, human resource management, and operations management). You will also develop the conceptual and analytical skills necessary to tackle contemporary business problems.

Graduates from the MSc Management programme have obtained excellent positions with leading Northern Irish and global companies, such as Bombardier Aerospace, Rolls Royce and PricewaterhouseCoopers. A survey of the 2007 cohort showed that over 80% were in employment within three months after completion.

Programme Structure

The MSc Management is a full-time programme lasting twelve months and starting each September. Students who successfully complete the degree graduate in December of the following year.

The programme consists of two semesters and the dissertation period. All students study six compulsory modules, three in each semester. Dissertations are carried out individually with supervision by a member of the academic staff.

What modules will I take?

Winning Markets examines the relationship between the theory and practice of marketing in organisational contexts. A range of issues in contemporary marketing are
examined including customer relationship management, market segmentation and fragmentation, consumer buying behaviour and product branding. Students may also
participate in researching and developing a marketing strategy for a local client company.

Operations Management in the New Economy encompasses the design, operation and improvement of the processes and systems employed to create and deliver an organisation’s products and services. A range of issues are covered including operations strategy, supply chain management, and services management. The course includes making decisions about the operations of an online factory, a real-life factory tour, and case studies of contemporary organisations.

People and the 21st Century Organisation is focused on understanding theunprecedented challenges faced by business organisations in managing their human resource. Across virtually every industry, managers are confronted with new conditions of rapid technological change and intense global competition – conditions that demand capacities of leadership, adaptability, and coordination on a scale never before imagined.

As traditional sources of competitive advantage are being eroded, organisational design is becoming a crucial aspect of business success. This course aims to equip prospective managers with the competencies to help design and deliver high-performance organisations that can succeed in the 21st century.

Strategy Making for Tomorrow’s Manager is concerned with the totality of what a business or organisation is trying to achieve. It assesses a wide variety of environmental
and organisational aspects which, when considered overall, help us to understand why some organisations thrive and similar organisations may struggle. The module is intended to prepare you for general management; it looks at the management of the firm from a holistic rather than a functional or specialist viewpoint.

Finance and Accounting for Managers addressees the theory and practice of business finance and accounting at a non-specialist level. This includes topics such as; the function of accounting and control in organisations, financial and management accounting, financial statement analysis, valuation of investment projects, the appropriate financing of investment and the choice of how to distribution benefits to stakeholders. The aim of the module is to provide students with an understanding of the use of accounting information by managers and investors and the fundamental concepts and principles of the investment and finance decisions of firms.

Statistics & Research Methods is intended to develop students’ skills and abilities to investigate, understand and interpret performance and issues in business and management. The module has two specific objectives. First, it aims to introduce students to the philosophical and ethical underpinnings of business and management research, as well as to a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques used therein. Second, it aims to provide students with an introduction to statistics and quantitative data analysis, including the use of SPSS.

How will the modules be assessed?

Assessment involves a combination of coursework, in-class tests, group work and presentations. There are no formal examinations on the MSc Management programme.

This feature, pioneered in the UK for undergraduate students by Brunel University, is becoming more popular amongst more mature students, for whom such a placement can often serve as a springboard to often extremely competitive labour market. Postgraduate work placement employers cover all related expenses with many also providing a salary.

At Brunel we provide many opportunities and experiences within your degree programme and beyond – work-based learning, professional support services, volunteering, mentoring, sports, arts, clubs, societies, and much, much more – and we encourage you to make the most of them, so that you can make the most of yourself.

MSc Management Economics and Consumer Studies

The Management, Economics and Consumer Studies programme deals with the interrelationships between producers, consumers and society-at-large. We offer specialisations for students with a Social Sciences background as well as a technical Life Sciences background.

Programme summary

During the programme, students will study the dynamics in the agro-food chain involving suppliers, producers, retailers and consumers; focusing on how they affect each other and how they affect, and are affected by, the economy and society. The domain of this programme is business and all the components of industry including production, distribution and final use or consumption. It covers managerial, economic, sociological and environmental aspects – internal and external – of households and businesses in the Netherlands, Europe and the rest of the world, in both developed and developing countries.

Specialisations

Within the MSc Management Economics and Consumer Studies you can choose from four specialisations. Each specialisation trains you to become an expert in that field.

Management Studies
This specialisation includes several options. Students can investigate and analyse the strategies and operations of companies in production and distribution networks as well as the dynamic decision-making processes involved in production. Alternatively, you may choose to focus on the various aspects of marketing and consumer behaviour in business, agribusiness and the food industry. It is also possible to acquire expertise in facility management, information systems, operations research (logistics), information management or quantitative decision modelling.

Consumer Studies
This specialisation allows you to study the behaviour, lifestyles and consumption patterns of consumers and households. Students will acquire insight into the economic and sociological aspects of consumers and households, and the factors determining consumption behaviour and patterns. Alternatively, the role of communication between the various actors in the food chain or consumer technology can be studied.

Economics, Environment and Governance
Students analyse the economic behaviour of various participants in the agricultural sector and rural areas in developed countries or study the pivotal role of agricultural and rural development in low-income countries. You can also specialise in Public Administration and Policy if you are interested in the governance of complex problems in domains of sustainable agriculture, climate change or water management. If students are more interested in environmental issues, they can focus on the economic or policy aspects of national and international environmental problems or the processes of environmentally-induced social change in modern industrial and developing societies.

Management, Innovation and Life Sciences
The goal of this specialisation, especially designed for students with a life science background, is to integrate technical and managerial knowledge. Examples of how this interaction can be of optimal use are complex innovation processes in production, logistics or market development. These processes have a high technological character in which innovation plays a central role and for which good communication and managerial skills are necessary. Three different profiles can be studied within this specialisation: innovation management, innovation in decision support and economics, and innovation in operations management.

Your future career

Graduates have career prospects as managers, consultants, researchers and teachers in the public or private sector. Career opportunities are found within financial institutions, marketing agencies or in the field of consumer affairs. Also, alumni work as policy makers in government agencies or non-profit organisations, in development and innovation in life science related businesses or organisations.

Alumnus Bart Zwartjes.
Innovate a new chip flavour, assist in expanding an encyclopedia made by consumers (Wikipedia), or write a review of a purchased product. These are just a few examples of co-creating as a consumer. Co-creation is a joint effort by company and consumer and companies have a lot to gain by this. Namely, 50-70% of all product innovations fail at market entry. Co-creation allows companies to offer products and services that meet consumer needs better. But why would consumers spend their free time helping out companies? Currently Bart works as a consultant for Cap-Gemini advising businesses on how to make successful use of co-creation.

Over 70% of the world’s economy is services. The MSc Management in a Service Economy aims to equip graduates with the ability to create and deliver reliable customer centred service - a key differentiator for business today. Read more

Course Outline

Over 70% of the world’s economy is services. The MSc Management in a Service Economy aims to equip graduates with the ability to create and deliver reliable customer centred service - a key differentiator for business today. In many industries, profit margins on product sales have shrunk enormously, leading to an increased focus on generating profits through value-added services. Thus, the best firms now bundle customer-centred service with a manufactured product and create service centred solutions. Some, like IBM have moved completely to service and solutions.

Service Management as a body of knowledge has made immense progress in the last decade. Economies are more and more service-focused and it has become imperative to study all aspects of managing service. Buckingham is among the very few universities in the world to have responded to the demand for the creation of expertise in this area and to have established a track-record of success.

Teaching Method

Teaching across our postgraduate programmes is through a combination of formal lectures, tutorials and seminars. Our lectures aim to encourage healthy dialogue between faculty and students, and between students themselves, while our small tutorial groups ensure that students can engage even more closely with their teachers. Members of the Business School faculty also make a point of being available to students outside the scheduled teaching sessions – something which our postgraduate students find particularly valuable.

We frequently use case studies to examine business decisions taken in real situations, and business simulations and games give you first-hand experience of decision making in the world of work. Role-play and group problem-solving exercises help you to apply some of the theoretical concepts delivered in lectures and you will have the opportunity to undertake individual or group projects with local companies on topical business issues.

Intellectual Property Law has become an interdisciplinary field comprised of law, engineering, medical science, economics, and numerous other fields. Read more

Overview

Intellectual Property Law has become an interdisciplinary field comprised of law, engineering, medical science, economics, and numerous other fields. The MSc in Management of Intellectual Property explores the foundations of this area of law with relation to patents, trade marks and the other core areas within this field.

This Masters of Science is primarily aimed at science and engineering graduates who wish to pursue a career as patent or trade mark attorneys, though it is also open to graduates from all academic backgrounds who wish to study Intellectual Property (IP) at postgraduate level.

There is continued need for expertise in intellectual property law and management in industry, commerce and the innovative and creative industries, and this MSc gives you the opportunity to study IP to a high level. The programme offers a professional stream (for science and technology graduates), and a business stream, available to graduates from all fields looking to expand their knowledge of the application and management of IP.

Professional stream
The professional stream is directed towards graduates (primarily sciences and other technical industries, but also from all other backgrounds) seeking qualification as patent and trade mark attorneys.

Business stream
Students on the business stream will gain profound knowledge of the law and its operation with a view to working in areas such as the press and media, the entertainment industry, the internet and software industries, or the luxury goods industries. Further sectors where knowledge in Intellectual Property and related areas is seen as a particular advantage include governments, international organisations, universities or non-governmental institutions.

This programme will:
◦Give you a choice of two streams to suit your background; a professional stream for science and engineering graduates, and a business stream for graduates of other disciplines.
◦Offer science and engineering graduates the opportunity to gain professional exemptions from Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) and Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (ITMA).

What is Intellectual Property (IP) law?

Intellectual Property Law has become an interdisciplinary field comprising law, engineering, medical science, economics, and numerous other fields. This programme teaches the foundations of this area of law with relation to patents, trademarks and the other core areas within this field.

Why study Intellectual Property law?

The MSc Management of Intellectual Property programme was developed as we recognised the increasingly important role of intellectual property in our modern economy. There is an emerging need in industry, in commerce and in those professions concerned with intellectual property law, for science and technology graduates who have studied intellectual property law to a high level. In industry, particularly in small and medium-sized firms involved in research and development, where there is no in-house lawyer or patent agent, there is often a need for an intermediary between the firms and the external lawyer or patent agent for example; or for an executive to handle the inward or outward licensing of technology, to negotiate research and development contracts (where ownership of intellectual property is usually central to the bargaining) or generally to have a basic knowledge of current developments in the field of business law (eg. contract law, product liability law) insofar as these may relate to the firm's present or future activities.

With the introduction of the new business stream we also offer a distinct avenue for graduates from all backgrounds to gain valuable knowledge of intellectual property.

Structure of the MSc in Management of Intellectual Property

Classes usually commence mid-September with examinations in May/June. Courses are taught during the day at Queen Mary University of London campuses and usually take place between 9.00am and 5.00pm.

There is an initial Basic English Law examination which takes place two weeks after the start of the programme. Students then select which stream they wish to undertake.

Compulsory modules:

◦Study project (45 credits)
◦Basic principles of English law, evidence and practice (non-credit bearing but all students must pass this module at the start of the programme)

All students require 180 credits in total.

Professional stream students have core modules plus one free choice half module of 22.5 credits. In addition to this, professional stream students also sit two additional papers to gain exemption from the foundation papers of CIPA and ITMA, both papers must be passed to gain the exemption for either institution.

Business stream students have a free choice of 135 credits (three full modules or six half modules, or a combination of the two.)

All students are required to study the core subject units: Patent law, Copyright and designs law, Law of trade marks and unfair competition, Competition law, and Basic principles of English law, evidence and practice in term one. Occasional additional second semester options may be available.

About the MSc programme

The MSc Management and Strategy is a cutting-edge programme in managerial economics, designed to develop your analytical and critical skills in the core strategic issues facing managers and organisations in today’s fast-moving global business world.

The programme will give you a fundamental understanding of incentives and governance, organisational design, individual and group decision-making, and strategy in competition and markets. With a strong focus on economic business analysis, you will learn to rigorously examine managerial challenges using economic techniques, and to recommend your own innovative, intelligent solutions.

You will also develop a critical understanding of the wider socio-economic environment in which businesses across the globe operate, giving real world relevance to your managerial skills, and providing the training you will need to deal with unknown future challenges in the global economy across your lifetime career.

The programme links critical analysis with practice, by combining the analytical rigour of an economics degree with real-world, contemporary case studies used in MBAs. Throughout the programme you will be challenged to understand and apply cutting-edge managerial and economic theory to examples from the real world.

You will graduate as a skilled analytical manager, with well-rounded intellectual and practical skills which are highly sought after by employers.

You do not require prior knowledge of economics, but you will need a basic interest in, and openness to, economic reasoning. The programme is aimed at students who have some quantitative background (e.g. a first degree in engineering, science, or a social science), with some quantitative training in elementary calculus and basic statistics. The programme will appeal to students with a degree in an economics or management-related subject who are looking for a more rigourous approach to management.

About the MSc programme

The MSc Management of Information Systems and Digital Innovation (MISDI) programme is an intellectually rigourous, innovative, interdisciplinary programme that integrates established knowledge on the development and management of information systems with the critical study of emerging domains of digital innovation, such as social networking, crowdsourcing and big data.

We study digital innovation in business and government across the world. The internet and mobile technologies are drastically changing the ways we create and share information, and open opportunities for new business models, new forms of governance, and new ways for public engagement. Managers with the capability to capitalise on new digital developments, and manage the transformation of technological systems within organisations, are highly sought after in the job market. The MISDI programme prepares students for key roles in the shaping of digital innovation and in the management of the business and social transformation that such innovation unleashes. 

The programme involves research led, practice relevant teaching. Our learning approach places emphasis on theory and critical discussion of academic literature from across a range of scientific fields. We include social theories for understanding the processes of information systems and innovation and case studies for illustrating issues in particular instances of management and innovation practice.
