Course content

This course is one of a very few aimed at mid-career professionals wishing to make the move to senior management within industrial and manufacturing organisations.

We designed it to provide the business expertise essential for senior managers by combining specific engineering subjects with managing technology and manufacturing systems.

You examine the latest business thinking and gain expert knowledge of engineering and technology issues and theories.

We combine topics such as

  • finance
  • marketing
  • management strategy

with modern industrial issues such as

  • project and quality management
  • manufacturing effectiveness
  • advanced manufacturing technology
  • supply chain management.

This mix of subjects reflects the challenges faced by today’s traditional manufacturing organisations.

The course includes the SAP Production Planning e-academy (USCM4e). You also have the opportunity to sit the SAP certification at extra cost.

Sheffield Hallam University is a SAP Student Academy and a founding member of the SAP University Alliance.

Why study for an MBA?

The role of the engineer is changing and in an industrial company the engineer is likely to be the manager who has to implement new practices and technologies.

In this role you are likely to be the primary instigator of change in the organisation and for this you need specific skills and knowledge. It is important that you widen your knowledge and skills in management areas if you are to be and effective senior manager in a manufacturing industry.

This course complements your technical degree by completing your education in the wider areas of management that usually include subjects such as • finance • marketing • human resource management • lean operations • management strategy. It also enables you to progress quickly in your career – usually through fast track promotion into very senior management posts.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
