CBEE benefits from the unique position that London now occupies in the creative industries worldwide. Long known as a centre of excellence, innovation and commerce in the worlds of Theatre, Publishing and Music, the last twenty years have seen the city consolidate its place as the second largest global production centre for Film and Television behind Los Angeles.

In the last ten years the city has also become the second largest hub for Online/Tech and Games innovation after Silicon Valley.

With such a wealth of activity, the city has attracted a unique concentration of creative, executive and business talent across all seven domains, supported by its long-established place as a global financial hub. It hosts the European corporate HQ’s for every leading media brand from Google, YouTube, and Warners, to Penguin Random House and Sony. Yet is also home to some of the most dynamic independent players in each field, from Beggars Banquet in music to Working Title in film.

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.

A new type of Master’s Degree for Entrepreneurial Graduates

If you plan to start your own business, work for a start-up or develop a career as a consultant to growing businesses, then you should seriously consider our new Master’s programme. This innovative one-year MSc in Entrepreneurial Consultancy and Practice (MECP) has been designed, with support from KPMG Enterprise, to develop your entrepreneurial skills, attitudes and behaviour. This will be achieved by providing opportunities for you to combine theoretical studies in entrepreneurship and business and with real work experience as junior business consultants.

You will be working with a range of entrepreneurs, helping them to develop and grow their innovative businesses by identifying, researching and resolving the problems faced by most start-up businesses as they grow.

As you will be representing the University of Buckingham and KPMG Enterprise in your external work, you will spend your first term developing your entrepreneurship and business knowledge and learning how to work as a member of a consultancy team. In your second term you will work on two consultancy projects. This will be followed by two more complex projects in your third term. During your final term you and your team must complete a major consultancy project for a larger growth business.

You will also be given a chance to develop your own business ideas, working in teams during the first term, and at the end of the term you will ‘pitch’ the idea you have developed to our ‘Buckingham Angels’ venture capital panel.

Why study at the University of Buckingham?

The University of Buckingham is the Times University of the Year for Teaching Excellence 2015/16 and also the UK’s only campus-based independent university. It has been operating successfully for nearly 40 years without any Government funding by being innovative and entrepreneurial.

Programme overview

Over the course of the programme you must complete 5 business consultancy projects, in teams of up to 3 people. The aim of each project will be to advise SME management about the best ways to develop and grow their businesses. This will involve you working with the owners and managers of a diverse range of SMEs and tackling business problems of varying complexity that are preventing growth.

Modules

Prior to starting any consultancy projects you will take two introductory modules in the first term, ‘Overview of Business Functions’ and ‘Consulting for Level 1 Projects’, to ensure that you are well prepared for your initial consultancy projects.

To prepare you for increasingly difficult projects, you will be taught two additional modules (‘Consulting for Levels 2 and 3 Projects’) in each of the following two terms and these will further develop your skills and knowledge.

Support from KPMG Enterprise

To ensure that you will be well prepared for your roles as junior business consultants, KPMG Enterprise has agreed to:

- Facilitate a number of classroom-based sessions as part of the four training modules, including a session explaining to you how you would be expected to ‘behave / act’ in a place of work, in particular in a scenario where you may be seconded to work for a client.
- Use their existing network locally to recommend to the University possible companies for the Business School to contact about offering appropriate consultancy / intern roles for MECP postgraduates.
- Provide a mentor role to MECP teams undertaking business consultancy projects.

Course outline

The MSc programme in Money, Banking and Central Banking is designed to offer specialised teaching in banking and financial markets which is particularly relevant given all the changes introduced during the last global financial crisis, as well as the changes made by major central banks in the running of their monetary policies since then.

Monetary analysis has been mainly disregarded in the years running up to The Global Financial Crisis and this contributed to high rates of growth of money which ultimately led to unsustainable economic growth and financial instability. Unlike any other degree in the UK ours emphasises the importance of high quality monetary and banking analysis so we can assess those policies compatible with stable economic growth and financial stability over the long term. Expert knowledge of monetary economics and monetary policy, risk management and financial institutions is going to be of crucial important to understand the world after the recent crisis.

The degree will provide the latest research methods and tools to teach students to think analytically and critically, and apply their knowledge to practical problems faced by investment banks and central banks and other financial institutions.

We welcome both recent graduates and those already in employment in these areas who wish to further their careers.

Structure

The bulk of the programme will consist of several modules providing the theoretical and analytical tools for the students to understand central bank operations and policies, as well as banking business, so they can identify how money is created in modern economies and analyse how changes in the amount of money affect overall prices as well as the running of the economy along the cycle. Students will also learn the statistical techniques and use specialised software to gather and analyse macroeconomic and financial data. At the end of the programme students will submit a master’s dissertation.

Modules taught on this degree include:

Central Banking (1), History, Strategies and Operations
Empirical Technique in Economics 1 & 2
Banking Risk Management
The Central Bank, The Banking System and the Macroeconomy
Financial Analysis and Portfolio Modelling
Central Banking (2), Monetary Policy and Financial Stability
PRMIA certificate (optional)
We offer two entry points, in September and January. We also offer a part-time programme for those professionals already working and looking forward to furthering their education and careers in money and banking.

Professional accreditation in risk management

Students will be offered the option to take an examination and get the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association (PRMIA) accreditation in financial risk management. In particular the students will be able to get the Associate Professional Risk Manager Certificate (Associate PRM Certificate), which is a PRMIA programme offered online for staff entering the risk management industry.

The programme covers fundamental concepts of the risk management profession and has become a well-known benchmark in this market both in the UK and in the rest of the world.

Film, TV, music, books and computer games are now bought and sold over a dizzying array of platforms, from traditional cinematic exhibition to premium-priced SVOD pre-releases of movies in your living room, and from boxed computer discs from retailers to free-to-play app games on your mobile phone.

This course will take participants through the process of taking a piece of content (a game, TV show or a feature film) to its market – examining how the sales, marketing, distribution and retail (or exhibition) side of each industry works from “nose to tail”. The course will also look at the emergence of new and innovative forms of media that merge traditional media with digital markets (including Youtubers, branded content among others) and the commercial side of each. By the end of the course students will be expected to have an unrivalled overview of the three key sectors and be able to move between them with ease, making them both very employable executives and marketers who can utilise multi-disciplinary skills to innovate in their chosen sector.

At the heart of the course are two four-week work placements at major media firms, alongside professionally led seminars from some of the world’s most prestigious companies.

Over the course of the two years, students will learn:

-Key branding and marketing concepts within the creative sectors.
-Sector-specific commercial and creative trends, national and international marketplace analysis
-The full distribution value chain of each of the industries – film, television, digital entertainment and computer games
-How sales, distribution and marketing coalesce to help raise finance and complete projects
-The retail ecology and process of each sector
-The legal processes underpinning rights management and the exploitation of content
-Press, PR and opinion formers within each sector, and structured within a broader context
-Social media strategy
-SEOs and digital revenues
-This course begins in January each year.

Course outline

The Master’s in Educational Leadership is a deeply practical course, which aims to develop and improve the quality of leadership in schools.

There are two versions of the course: Secondary/Senior and Prep/Primary. The principles and methods of both courses are identical, and the examples and materials used are relevant to the setting.

Course content

You will attend three three-day residentials over the course of one academic year. Assessment is via oral contribution on the residential courses, as well as the submission of three written assignments, all of which are rooted in your own professional concerns. Our intention is that, at all times, the work should be directly relevant to your interests and professional challenges. The course draws from best existing practice in the independent and state sectors, yet the leadership models on the course are not confined to the world of education. Our approach is heavily influenced by the Harvard Business School’s famous case study model.
