Many employers require graduates who possess a range of skills and knowledge, including experience in the workplace. Masters students of the Business School take a unit called Investigating Business Practice, where you will act as a consultant for a real business. This will develop your project management, team working, client management and business consultancy skills.

In groups, you will be matched with a business organisation that is seeking solutions to an issue that is related to your subject area. You will be expected to meet with the client company, identify the key issues that the client is facing and be required to scope out their specific requirements and business needs, delegate roles and tasks within your team and then respond professionally to this brief, showcasing strategies and proposals that they can realistically implement into their business.

Behind-the-scenes business visits

As a Masters student of the Business School, you have the opportunity to participate in a number of free business visits that allow you to see behind the scenes of successful companies and learn about how these businesses are structured and operate. The business visit programme varies each year, check mmu.ac.uk/business-school for more information.

Professional development weeks

The Faculty of Business and Law hosts two Professional Development Weeks annually. Free and open to all students, this includes a festival of skills-development activities, practical support in developing your CV and employability skills, and the opportunity to network with actively recruiting graduate employers.

Consultancy dissertation

The dissertation unit is your chance to undertake a consultancy dissertation, which could be based on a current or potential employer and aligned to your career goals in a specific sector, organisation or industry. This would involve identifying and structuring an investigative managerial or business issue, producing a substantial written document of your conclusions and recommendations.

Expert guest lectures

A number of guest lectures take place each year with leading speakers from industry. The Business School shares extensive links with over 25 professional bodies including the Chartered Management Institute and the Institute of Leadership and Management.

Important information: academic review of Manchester Metropolitan University Cheshire campus

Manchester Metropolitan University has been undertaking a review of the long-term future of academic provision at its Cheshire campus. It has now been confirmed that the University will withdraw from the Cheshire campus. This means that we expect the campus to close in the summer of 2019.

As the withdrawal from the campus will be a phased process we are still pleased to receive applications for one year full time postgraduate taught courses starting in 2017 on the Cheshire campus. We also continue to welcome applications for part time postgraduate courses of two years in duration in the Exercise and Sport Science department starting in 2017. Applications for courses that are expected to take longer than two years to complete are currently on hold.

Please visit our website for the latest information on the review: http://www.cheshire.mmu.ac.uk/campusreview


The fields of exercise and sport science are becoming increasingly specialised demanding greater levels of understanding. Alongside this movement is the need to educate postgraduate students to be critical thinkers and be ready to adapt their skills to new areas of health, exercise intervention and sports education.

The course encourages students to challenge themselves and the current knowledge and thinking within the field of exercise and sport. Students follow a common research methods training which is heavily ‘hands on’ utilising the departmental laboratories and field based techniques.

Intellectually challenging and discipline-focused, this programme prepares you for a career within your chosen sub-discipline of exercise and sport at an advanced level. Underpinned by research and practitioner expertise, an interdisciplinary perspective is encouraged.

The programme is flexible: major and minor in subjects to achieve your desired combination eg MSc Exercise and Sport (Biomechanics with Physiology).

Units

• Foundation Biomechanics
• Analysing Movement
• Modelling and Simulation
• Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methods
• Applied Techniques in Exercise and Sport
• Biological and Non-biological Materials in Exercise and Sport
• Professional Skills
• Research Methods and Design
• Research Project

Study pattern

Full-time: Attendance at the University for two days per week from September to Easter. From Easter until completion attendance will be dependent on the research project being undertaken.

Part-time: University attendance for one day per week from September to Easter. In the second year, one day a week from September to Easter and then Easter to completion of research project as necessary.

Special Features

- Taught in a brand new £10 million Exercise and Sport Science Centre.
- Our sport development unit provides students opportunities to obtain additional qualifications and volunteering opportunities.
- Flexible programme allowing you to combine subjects
