Strategic management and leadership are what drive successful companies forward, shaping their decision making and helping them achieve their ambitions. Without a strong strategic plan, organisations cannot function at a competitive level, so you will be a key player in your company’s success. Open to business, management or economics graduates, this MSc is a specialist programme that will build on your existing skills and knowledge and develop them to Masters level.
The programme introduces students to advanced management concepts through a combination of core foundation subjects alongside the Strategy pathway. Students also have the opportunity to choose a mixed pathway route, tailoring the programme to their exact requirements.
The programme is structured into three components; six core foundation subjects (60 credits), one of four specialist pathways (60 credits), and a dissertation (60 credits). The MSc Management programme is assessed by individual coursework, group coursework, and examinations.
Coursework can take the form of short essays, extended essays, reports and presentations, through which students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
Taught modules contribute two thirds of the overall degree (120 credits). The final assessment is the 60 credit dissertation (10,000 – 12,000 words), where students conduct their own research aligned to their pathway under the guidance of a supervisor.
Students undertaking the Entrepreneurship & Innovation pathway will also have the opportunity to explore starting-up their own business.
