This programme for graduates in electronic engineering or similar subjects will prepare you to become a senior manager or entrepreneur in global companies, where understanding technology and managing innovation in business are key to success.
Jointly delivered by the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and Leeds University Business School, the course allows you to tailor the programme of studies to your needs, selecting optional modules from three engineering themes and four business themes. A set of core modules provides the foundation of your knowledge and skills.
You’ll be taught by leading experts in technology and in business management, with practical lab classes and project work allowing you to gain hands-on experience investigating and applying topics from your lectures and tutorials to real-life engineering and business situations.
This joint programme offers a unique opportunity to enhance both your technical and managerial skills.
The School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is an exciting and stimulating environment where you’ll learn from leading researchers in areas pertinent to emerging and developing technologies. These technologies include future wireless and optical communications systems, renewable energy systems, ultrasound and bioelectronics systems, as well as nano, terahertz, and quantum technologies.
Leeds University Business School is also a leading international business school, globally, in the top 1%. It has world ranked programmes and internationally recognised teaching. You'll leave as a graduate of one of the top ten universities targeted by key employers such as Google, HSBC, Rolls-Royce and the Civil Services.
A set of compulsory modules form the core of the programme, developing your understanding of the electronics and technology industries as well as fundamental business management topics.
You’ll study the principles of managing innovation and gain an understanding of risk perception, as well as operations and supply chain management. A dissertation will allow you to research and gain an in-depth understanding of key issues in developing technologies. Your research project will allow you to study how a new technology in electronic, electrical or communications engineering is being applied to a commercial environment.
To complete your studies, you’ll gain additional specialist knowledge through your choice of optional modules related to a range of different themes. You don’t have to choose modules from within the same themes – you can study topics as diverse or as specialised as you want to reflect your own interests or career plans.
Themes include healthcare technologies, energy, information management and other topics that reflect the research strengths of both Leeds University Business School and the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. We will expect you to take one or two optional modules offered by LUBS.

This unique interdisciplinary Professional Science Masters programme, developed in partnership between The School of Physics and Astronomy and Leeds University Business School, offers you the opportunity to develop both high level physics competencies and key business management skills.
The programme will be especially relevant to you if you are working in, or seeking a career within, the SME advanced technology sector, where a strong background in both applied fundamental science, and an understanding of commercial and business environments is highly desirable. However, the programme will equally be of value to those seeking a more commercially focussed role in larger organisations.
Employers regularly state that STEM graduates lack commercial awareness - this programme will seek to address this skills deficit.
A unique feature of this programme is that you will not study the Physics and Business Management elements in isolation of each other. The large research project will form a capstone for the programme that brings together both the business and scientific elements to solve a business-specified problem. The research project will be carried out in conjunction with industry and will bring together both business and scientific elements to solve a business-specific problem.
You will benefit from:
Teaching methods involve a combination of lectures, tutorials, case studies, workshops and contact with relevant industries. The final stage of study is an individual extended research project which is typically carried out within a research group and may also include external industrial involvement.
Assessment is based on course work, research project performance and written exams which take place at the end of the semester in which the module is taught.
You’ll receive sector-specific training to suit your own career objectives and be given the guidance to apply your knowledge by experts from both the business and science communities.
You’ll be well-placed for senior roles in industry, whether that be within small high technology companies looking to develop new markets, or large corporate organisations looking to manage growth and change, in sectors such as Aerospace, Consumer Electronics, Energy and Power, Healthcare, IT and Telecommunications.
Many such organisations need skilled employees with the ability to apply their scientific knowledge in a business management capacity. Furthermore, graduates are increasingly finding careers in companies that are applying digital technologies to improve their business.
We encourage you to prepare for your career from day one. That’s one of the reasons Leeds graduates are so sought after by employers.
