Programme description

Good management is central to business success. Without it, there can be no cohesion, no teamwork, no real sense of direction. This programme is designed therefore to provide an insight into the theories and practical skills needed for successful management and through that - a successful business. It is especially beneficial for those with non-business backgrounds, perhaps in engineering, sciences, social sciences or the arts. It can be equally as effective for those yet to begin their career as those looking to make significant progress in one already begun.

Blending classic management techniques with the very latest in management thinking, the MSc in Management encompasses international issues and diverse national business characteristics and settings.

This intensive and demanding programme is purposely designed towards practice orientation, supplementing the knowledge participants have already acquired - either in business or in their undergraduate studies - with a thorough insight into modern management practice.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, solving problems in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

Learning outcomes

During the course of their studies students will have gained knowledge and understanding to be able to:

  • Demonstrate a general knowledge framework and understanding of key functions in management as applied in practice.
  • Obtain through electives in-depth knowledge and understanding in more specific management related areas.
  • Identify and appreciate the ethical issues in management decision areas.
  • Obtain an understanding of how to undertake qualitative and quantitative research and apply this knowledge in the context of a major independent work (e.g. final dissertation).
