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.

Professionals in construction management are at the heart of the delivery phase of buildings and infrastructure in every economy, and play an essential part in the realisation of the physical development aspiration of clients.

Society continues to value and shape the built environment resulting in both public and private investment in construction assets and the successful completion of construction projects. As these projects become more socially and technically complex in a changing world dominated by a concern for sustainability, there has been a growing challenge to develop existing and new skills and expertise in construction management. This challenge is not only national but global as the need for construction management skills continues to grow internationally. Indeed, our student cohorts reflect this global challenge with students from across multiple continents.

This particular programme benefits from being rooted in a long 40 year history of delivery. It has evolved and aligned itself with the challenge above to reinforce it as one of the most long-standing and successful Construction Management Masters programmes of its kind. The programme has and continues to be the flagship of our postgraduate programmes and is heavily subscribed and endorsed by the global construction management community.

The programme is designed for recent graduates from construction and related disciplines and introduces the fundamentals and challenges to contemporary construction management. It is also ideally suited to those who have a strong technical background and need to complement it with requisite management know-how for developing their national and international careers in the construction sector.

Students on the programme significantly benefit from the programmes strong connection with the expertise of the UK’s longest-established research group ‘Construction Technology and Organisation’ and the Royal Academy of Engineering Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design.

Accreditation of the programme is provided by the UK’s Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Engineering Council and The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

Key facts

- An outstanding place to study. The School of Civil and Building Engineering is ranked 2nd in the UK for Building in the Times Good University Guide 2015
- Research-led teaching from international experts. 75% of the School’s research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent in the latest Government Research Excellence Framework.

The study and practice of the 'so much more' is what makes marketing so interesting!
