The MSc is designed to be a vibrant and innovative course that focuses on best practice in management and leadership while developing an international aspect. By adding a ‘family business’ route to the course, you can develop your studies on the most frequent of business in existence, accounting for between 65-90% of all businesses and existing across different countries, continents and geopolitical boundaries. The importance of leadership within the MSc International Leadership and Management that focusses upon Family and Smaller Enterprises starts from the premise that anyone working in a family business requires at least two forms of expertise: business/leadership expertise and the ability to consider the family dimension. By studying some general business leadership modules and some that focus directly on the family dimension, the MSc in Family and Smaller Enterprises prepares students for careers working in a family business or within the business advisory community.

We have found the best way to learn about our business courses and the underpinning ethos and differences that drive us is to speak to members of the team that will work with you. We are delighted to arrange a visit or invite you to attend a class, giving you the opportunity to speak to Masters students about their experiences. If you are based outside the UK then you may wish to SKYPE one of the programme team and we can discuss your questions face to face.

A central part of the course experience is the regular involvement of industry through specific visits, guest lectures, scenario planning and project opportunities. Class sizes are normally 10-30 students.
