Our one-year MSc Management course will transform you from an ambitious graduate into a successful manager. Inspired by our highly ranked MBA programmes, the MSc Management is an intensive and immersive course, ideal if you have aspirations for senior leadership roles in management. You will learn to apply the skills you acquire in a range of environments including marketing, purchasing, strategic customer management, business consultancy and organisational development.
We believe that studying the theory is only one element that enables you to become a global leader. We focus on developing you as an individual, enhancing your soft-skills and the impact you can have early in your career, whilst furnishing you with a broad conceptual knowledge of management supporting you as your career progresses. This course is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
You will refine and build upon your communication, teamworking, and presentation skills through individual and group work, and develop your personal and professional skills in decision-making, problem-solving, analysis, and critical reflection. You will have the opportunity to get a real sense of the business world with site visits, external speakers, and talks from our Professors of Practice, senior business and industry practitioners. You will also have a developed awareness of international business culture through optional international modules.
All students on the course will complete the Business Immersion and Critical Thinking module offering intensive learning opportunities partly taught at WBS London at The Shard.
You will study six compulsory modules to give you a broad overview of key business areas, and three open optional modules to suit your own aspirations. You will be able to choose an Elective Pathway, giving you a deep and specialist insight into a particular sector, organisation type or role. Elective Pathways may include Global, Digital Management and Small/Medium Enterprise and Innovators.
Our range of optional modules offers stimulating choices including some international modules. Please note that module availability may vary and that your first choice may not be guaranteed.
You will have group and individual assessments, plus exams, and an individual dissertation.
You will complete an individual dissertation. This will be a piece of desk-based research on a company of your choice, and will test your understanding of management theory as well as your ability to select and apply it.
Students on this course will have the opportunity to apply for a place on one of our study weeks. Currently, we offer study weeks at Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management and the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business. Places on these study weeks are optional and limited, and students will be able to partake in an application and selection process to take part once they have begun on the course. Please note that the flights, accommodation, teaching and company visits for these trips will be funded by Warwick Business School for successful students.
Please note that this course is currently going through a review and there may be changes to the module structure for 2018 entry. Please check the website regularly for the most up to date details.
