Strategy & Innovation (MSc) (Full-time)

Course Description


The MSc in Strategy & Innovation is designed for applicants holding honours undergraduate degrees in business and/or management disciplines. Applications from managers with significant work experience holding degrees in non-business disciplines are also encouraged.

The programme can be taken full-time over one year or part-time over two-years.

The programme is not suitable for recent graduates from non-business disciplines and candidates in this category should consider the Masters in Business Management, Human Resources Management or IT Management.

The MSc in Strategy & Innovation is focussed on advanced high level exploration of key areas in Strategy Management and Innovation Management and is supported by leading edge content in Leadership, Technology, and Finance.

The programme will build your capacity to analyse and make decisions on complex issues facing senior leaders in organisations. It will also build your capacity to work in teams and lead important strategic projects.

The programme is delivered through lectures, presentations and intensive workshops in 5 blocks of four full days (5 blocks of two days over two years part-time). The learning process has been designed to provide students with three broad workload categories:
- a) Taught sessions with lectures on advanced content;
- b) Individual written assignments to develop and assess students’ knowledge and critical thinking skills;
- c) Group projects to develop and assess team work skills, skills of application, and problem solving abilities.

The course assessment is 100% continuous assessment.
