The course aims to equip you with the essential academic knowledge in business and management alongside the personal skills which are applicable to all industries and the more specific knowledge of the sports industry which will help you launch your career.

The course is regularly ranked within the top courses of its kind worldwide and thus should provide applicants with an assurance as to the relevance and value of its content.

The MSc Sport Management is one of the few Master's courses which gives its students the opportunity to put theory into practice through an internship. This helps you to build your CV and work experience which should also place you at an advantage in the job market.

The course has an excellent track record of success, its graduates occupy managerial positions across a number of organisations both locally and internationally and as such it is a much sought after qualification.

About

The course was introduced to meet an increasing demand from students and employers who recognise the need for highly skilled managers in the area of sport. It aims to give students an introduction to the key areas of business, management and sports management which are essential to build a successful career in the sports industry.

The course combines the expertise of two of the University’s Schools: the Ulster University Business School and the Ulster University School of Sport, and is suitable for aspiring graduates from any academic discipline.

This MSc is designed for those who recognise the need to progress their academic study in order to embark on a successful career in sports management. The modules on the course offer a comprehensive introduction to the essential areas of business and management. In addition to the taught modules, the course places a substantial emphasis on developing students’ employability skills. You will also take advantage of our Internship Programme which gives you the opportunity to work alongside an organisation in the summer semester.

During the course, guest speakers are invited in to talk to students about how business and management theory is applied in various organisations. Students will also be invited to attend business and networking events, providing an opportunity for them to build up their network of contacts.

The modules on the MSc course will provide students with a thorough grounding in business and management principles. In semester 3, two modules are studied and students are then required to complete their Internship and associated Management Project.

The modules are intended to provide students with a thorough grounding in the business of sport along with the management principles and opportunities to develop and apply management related skills.

Attendance

The MSc Sport Management course is offered on both a full-time and part-time basis. The full-time route has a one year duration and the part-time route is studied over two years, both starting in the Autumn Semester (September).

The modules on the course will provide students with a thorough grounding in general business and management principles as well as the specifics relating to the area of sports management. Students begin the course by studying towards the Postgraduate Diploma. On successful completion of this they progress onto the full Master's qualification.

Work placement / study abroad

An internship forms an essential part of this course. Students work alongside an employer in semester 3 which allows them to gain some good work experience to further apply and contextualise skill sand develop their CVs. This internship also forms the basis of the final assessment on the course - the Management Project.

Students have worked in local sport goods manufacturers and clothing organisations such as Ecco and Adidas as well as with sports clubs, teams and organisations such as the Belfast Giants, Ulster Rugby and the IFA.

Career options

There are a variety of careers available to graduates of the course. Many students take up roles within the sports industry, for example in consultancy, marketing or administration. Other graduates have made use of the more generic business and management skills that are taught on the course to gain employment with organisations such as Apple.

Many students use the opportunity of their internship to build links with employers. Over the past few years students have worked for organisations such as the Belfast Giants, Ulster Sports Academy, Sport Ireland, Adidas, Ecco and the IFA, for example.

Summary

MSc Construction, Business and Leadership (with specialist management pathways) at Ulster University gives you the unique opportunity to master the twin tracks of managing the construction process and leading a business organisation.

Construction professionals must perform well as leaders and managers in all sectors of the industry. This programme provides a vehicle for you to further your construction knowledge as well as hone your management and leadership skills to enhance your ability to deliver both project and business objectives.

Construction firms and Consultants are increasingly seeking highly qualified employees who can respond to client demands in a diverse range of areas from seeking out commercial opportunities, managing and delivering the project to operation and maintenance of the built asset. This programme provides you with the opportunity to specialise in one of three management areas to meet your career objectives:

  • Specialist Option 1: Construction Project Management
  • Specialist Option 2: Commercial Management
  • Specialist Option 3: Built-Asset Management

The programme is suitable for both graduates and working professionals from a range of fields including architecture, building, engineering, quantity surveying, structural engineering, facilities maintenance and town planning, amongst others.

Given the increasing demand for suitably qualified and skilled professionals in the industry, career opportunities are extensive within the public, private and voluntary sectors and previous graduates have been successful at local, national and international levels.

Programme Objectives

For the award of Master of Science in Construction Business and Leadership (with specialist management pathways) you will have:

….ACQUIRED the necessary skills to undertake both independent and peer group learning; in the case of the former this will demand to review literature, data collection and the integration of theory and practice necessary for managerial reports, academic assignments and student presentations; in the case of the latter this will require working as part of a group to undertake the same tasks and possible assessment by peers;

….DEVELOPED skills in communication, teamwork, problem-solving, organisation (time management and task management), personal (self-awareness and self-appraisal) skills and information technology which will allow you to engage in interactive learning and the dissemination of information based on the acquisition and application of knowledge in your specialist area;

….APPLIED and integrated your knowledge of the core disciplines and option choices to a better understanding of the issues arising in the construction sector generally and in the sector or service in which they are employed. Specifically, this will involve you developing new theoretical and empirical perspectives and “testing” ideas for validity and robustness of peers and module tutors;

….CRITICALLY REFLECTED on existing management practice and suggest change in your areas of expertise; real-life topical managerial problems will provide the substance for case-study material in which analytical and conceptual skills acquired during the course will be utilised to improve practice.

each has a specific attendance pattern:

  • MSc Full-time – 1 calendar year

About

The imperative for business development and innovation in challenging times is the key to business growth and economic recovery. The overall aim of the MSc Business Development and Innovation course, therefore, is to provide an academically challenging, intellectually stimulating programme of study that educates, develops and enhances the professional competence of participants. In short, a course with a strong theoretical underpinning and relevant practical application.

Within this broad aim, the specific objectives of the course are to:

  • Provide an advanced study of business and management with particular reference to business development and innovation;
  • Prepare and/or develop students for a career in business development and innovation by facilitating the development of enhanced transferable skills at a professional or equivalent level, or as preparation for research or further study in the area;

  • Enhance students’ lifelong learning skills and personal development in order to work with self-direction and originality and to contribute to business and society at large.

Our experiences with participants studying on this course is that the real value of the course is in its ability to empower students to look in holistic terms at how innovation (in whatever form) can facilitate and support business development and create value in their own particular context.

Career options

The course provides opportunities for a wide range of career options across a range of areas. These include, for example, business development, strategy, innovation, business analysis, research, and consultancy.

About

The course recognises a need for organisations and their managers to become focused on the integration of quality and continuous improvement and as such, the course has been shaped and designed by leading academics and business leaders using the European Foundation Quality Model (EFQM) Excellence Model as its inspiration.

The European Framework for Quality Management (EFQM, 2013) introduces fundamental concepts of excellence which are practitioner-focused. The framework encourages organisations to strive towards eight concepts of excellence, which can only be achieved by actually doing something about it. As such it is a practical model which helps organisations to realise their potential. All modifications to these eight fundamental concepts of excellence, in addition to the new associated emphases, have been fully reflected in the proposed module content for this revised MSc Business Improvement course.

Students will study a diet of modules which will help them to gain a practical understanding of a variety of business improvement subject areas.

Students first work towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Improvement, taking a total of eight modules. Once these have been successfully completed students can then move on to complete the full Master's qualification by completing a Research Methods module and a Business Transformation Project.

The course provides a structure to business improvement which allows students to follow a logical journey. Part 1 of the course introduces students to the “enabler” aspects of business improvement, part 2 of the course focuses on the “results” of business improvement. In semester 3, students are given the opportunity to research a complex business improvement problem in depth via a supervised project.

Modules

Courses are continually reviewed to take advantage of new teaching approaches and developments in research, industry and the professions. Please be aware that modules may change for your year of entry. The exact modules available and their order may vary depending on course updates, staff availability, timetabling and student demand. 

  • Financial decision making
  • Leadership and change management
  • Innovation management
  • People development and involvement
  • Strategy
  • Quality and process management
  • Operational excellence
  • Business transformation project

Career options

This course is primarily aimed at equipping students with the skills to allow them to improve the operational performance of an organisation. The MSc Business Improvement course can lead individuals into positions focused on business improvement within organisations. There is a demand for these skills in the economy as organisations strive to become more efficient and effective.

Students who have studied on the course over the last few years have had successful careers in organisations such as Bombardier, BE Aerospace, FG Wilson, NI Water and other public sector organisations.

About

An MBA is an internationally recognised passport to a successful business career. The Ulster University Executive MBA can be studied part or full-time and is designed to equip experienced or aspiring industry leaders and business owners with the knowledge and confidence to be successful in their fields.

Delivered by the Ulster University Business School, Northern Ireland's leading business school for research and ranked 7th out of 101 business schools in the UK (Research Excellence Framework 2014), the Ulster MBA blends both commercial experience and theoretical learning.

As an Ulster University MBA student, you will study alongside a diverse range of professionals, gaining exposure to different organisations and sectors whilst developing your network. This diversity makes for a richer learning environment where knowledge and ideas can be shared. We also offer students excellent support throughout the course, both in their academic study and in their development as managers and business leaders.

You will be taught by academically qualified subject experts who possess a wealth of industry experience within leading organisations. We also work in close collaboration with local and international employers to ensure that the course is relevant and that what you study meets business needs.

The quality of our MBA is recognised by a number of professional bodies and chartered institutes who have provided exemptions from their own qualifications. For example, the requirements to become a Chartered Manager with the CMI are embedded into our programme should you wish to also gain this recognition at graduation.

What Separates the Ulster University MBA? This balance of commercial and academic experience is key to what separates the Ulster University MBA from other programmes on offer in NI.

A Practical and Applied MBA – Our programme is practical, everything we cover has to be readily applicable to real organisations. Complementing our taught modules is a professional development residential (the price of which is included in the course fees).

Chartered Manager – We have embedded the Chartered Management Institute’s (CMI) Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Leadership and Management into our programme. Students can opt to gain this qualification automatically at graduation meaning they can become a Chartered Manager through the exemption route (an additional fee to CMI will apply). We are the only MBA in NI to offer this professional accreditation.

Our Alumni – We have the largest alumni of any MBA in NI. Examples include Kevin Kingston (Danske Bank Chief Executive), Gerry Mallon (Ulster Bank Chief Executive and Chairman of the IFA) and Colin Walsh (Chief Executive and founder of Crescent Capital and past Chair of CBI NI).

Link with the Harvard Business School – In 2013, the Ulster University Business School became the first University School in the UK to join a global network of affiliated universities with Harvard. A number of our lecturers undertook intensive training in Boston and bring specialist knowledge in Harvard case study methods and access to online resources.

Mini-MBA – We understand that undertaking an MBA is a significant commitment, consequently, we offer students the opportunity to trial the MBA through our ‘Mini-MBA’ graduating with a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration. This is a commitment of 2 semesters (or 9 months), successful students can also progress on to complete the full-time MBA should they wish.

Attendance

The part-time MBA is taught over 2 academic years, starting in September each year. If you wish to "fast track" you can study the course over 1 academic year September to September.

The course begins with a residential induction programme, where students spend 2 days familiarising themselves with the course, with their classmates, and with the academic team.

Students will attend lectures on a weekly basis, (Tuesday in year 1 and Wednesday in year 2) in semesters 1 and 2 (September to December and January to May).

In semester 3 students complete modules on a 3-day "block" basis. This means studying a subject intensely for 3 days which allows students to immerse themselves in the subject area.

Examinations are held after each semester in January, May, and September.

Work placement / study abroad

Through the Ulster University Business School's connections with other Universities worldwide, students may be able to take advantage of studying a module overseas.

Professional recognition

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Career options

An MBA will help you develop your career whether it is progressing within your current organisation, changing career into a different profession/sector or working internationally. As a qualification, the MBA is valued and sought after by employers.

Graduates from the MBA course have found that they have been able to deliver value to their organisations through the work that they carry out on the course and thus progress their careers with their respective employers.

Other students use the MBA as a springboard to seek new opportunities both domestically and internationally.

Many students wish to either set up their own business or become business consultants. The course is specifically tailored (especially in terms of assessment and practical teaching) to allow students to develop the necessary skills and expertise to allow this fulfilment.

How does Ulster University help its MBA participants with job hunting?

We have a career development centre which we work in partnership with to ensure students are prepared for the main elements of job hunting (psychometric testing, team interviews, assessment centres, cv building, presentations, etc).

The course builds on graduates’ existing experience by equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage and lead within a range of industries, the modules on the course are practical in nature and require students to carry out tasks which deliver real value and are not just academic exercises.

There is a strong practical focus on skills development. We believe that students who can demonstrate the ability to add value within a ‘live’ organisational context will always be a more attractive employment proposition than those who cannot. We provide ample opportunity for students to develop and demonstrate managerial-level knowledge and skills within the course itself. For example, students will engage in ‘live’ in-company projects with organisations throughout and within semester 1, they will be provided with the opportunity to create, and actively trade with, their own business start-up (and keep any profits!). 

A 12 week ‘Internship and Management Project’ in semester 3 enables students to apply knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course to an organisational issue or problem, and, additionally, provides students with valuable experience of selling themselves to employers, gaining employment and acquiring and developing important workplace skills which will enhance their future career prospects.

About

Lectures follow the standard semester pattern, usually running over two days each week. Some modules may also be delivered in a “block” format (consecutive days rather than consecutive weeks).

In addition to lectures, seminars, directed reading and IT based resources, knowledge and understanding of the subject are acquired and further developed through case studies, extra-curricular project activity and student work/internship and employability experiences. Visiting speakers and practitioners’ masterclasses will be used to further develop a sound theoretical understanding of contemporary issues within business and management.
