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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Assessment

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

What is the Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling all about?

Get in at the bleeding edge of contemporary chemistry: theoretical and computational chemistry are marking the new era that lies ahead in the molecular sciences. The aim of the programme is to train scientists that are able to address a wide range of problems inmodern chemical, physical and biological sciences through the combination of theoretical and computational tools.

This programme is organised by:

  • Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (coordinating institution), Spain
  • Universiteit Groningen, the Netherlands
  • KU Leuven, Belgium
  • Università degli Studi di Perugia, Italy
  • Universidade do Porto, Portugal
  • Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse III, France
  • Universitat de Valencia, Spain

The Erasmus Mundus Master of Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling is a joint initiative of these European Universities, including KU Leuven and co-ordinated by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. 

This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

Structure

The programme is organised according to a two-year structure.

  • The first year of the programme introduces you to concepts and methods. The core of the programme is an intensive international course intended to bring all participants to a common level of excellence. It takes place in the summer between year 1 and year 2 and runs for four weeks. Coursework is taught by a select group of invited international experts.
  • The second year of the programme is devoted to tutorials covering the material dealt with in the intensive course and to a thesis project carried out in part at another university within the consortium. The intensive course is organised at the partner institutions on a rotating basis.

Department

The Department of Chemistry consists of four divisions, all of which conduct highquality research embedded in well-established collaborations with other universities, research institutes and companies around the world. Its academic staff is committed to excellence in teaching and research. Although the department's primary goal is to obtain insight into the composition, structure and properties of chemical compounds and the design, synthesis and development of new (bio)molecular materials, this knowledge often leads to applications with important economic or societal benefits.

The department aims to develop and maintain leading, internationally renowned research programmes dedicated to solving fundamental and applied problems in the fields of:

  • the design, synthesis and characterisation of new compounds (organic-inorganic, polymers).
  • the simulation of the properties and reactivity of (bio)molecules, polymers and clusters by quantum chemical and molecular modelling methods.
  • the determination of the chemical and physical properties of (bio)molecules, and polymers on the molecular as well as on the material level by spectroscopy, microscopy and other characterisation tools as related to their structure.

Objectives

Modern Chemistry is unthinkable without the achievements of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. As a result these disciplines have become a mandatory tool for the molecular science towards the end of the 20th century, and they will undoubtedly mark the new era that lies ahead of us.

In this perspective the training and formation of the new generations of computational and theoretical chemists with a deep and broad knowledge is of paramount importance. Experts from seven European universities have decided to join forces in a European Master Course for Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (TCCM). This course is recognized as an Erasmus Mundus course by the European Union.

Graduates will have acquired the skills and competences for advanced research in chemical, physical and material sciences, will be qualified to collaborate in an international research team, and will be able to develop professional activities as experts in molecular design in pharmaceutical industry, petrochemical companies and new-materials industry.

Career perspectives

In addition to commanding sound theoretical knowledge in chemistry and computational modelling, you will be equipped to apply any of the scientific codes mastered in the programme in a work environment, or develop new codes to address new requirements associated with research or productive activities.

You will have attained the necessary skills to pursue a scientific career as a doctoral student in chemistry, physics or material science. You will also be qualified to work as an expert in molecular design in the pharmaceutical industry, at petrochemical companies and in the new-materials industry. You will also have a suitable profile to work as a computational expert.
