Option to specialise

If you pass the optional taught units plus a dissertation in a particular area of specialism you will graduate with one of the following combinations:
-MSc in Management with Finance
-MSc in Management with Marketing
-MSc in Management with Operations Management
-MSc in Management with Corporate Social Responsibility
-MSc in Management with Human Resource Management

General route

If you choose options which result in you not having studied three courses from a particular specialism, or if the dissertation is in a different subject from the optional course taken, you will graduate with an MSc in Management.

Summer period

During the summer period you will be able to choose between two tracks: (1) dissertation track and (2) practice track.
Both tracks allow you to demonstrate critical insight and reflective thinking about business/management/policy issues. The tracks also help develop your written and presentation skills, and your ability to develop effective arguments. All of these attributes are transferable skills relevant to the workplace and your future career.

Dissertation track

The dissertation track gives you the opportunity to do a piece of substantial work on your own, demonstrating originality, innovation, drive, and determination. The dissertation also enables you to plan and execute your own project, giving you complete choice and flexibility.

Practice track

The practice track allows you to undertake a number of tasks, both working in teams with other members of your cohort and working individually. The practice track is designed to allow you to apply learned concepts and theories to practical problems and issues, including a management problem which will be presented to you by an organisation. This track also provides opportunities for gaining practical experience in running team projects.

Unilever to present Case Week Project

The world-leading fast-moving consumer goods company, Unilever, represented by Tony Dunnage, Group Environmental Manager for Unilever, will present a business problem to practice track students on 15 June as part of Case Week.

You will then have two weeks to propose your own solutions to the problem, using the skills and knowledge gained during the programme, under guidance from your supervisors. The week will culminate with poster presentations to Unilever on 26 June.

Unilever is one of the oldest multinational companies. Its products are available in over 190 countries and it owns over 400 brands.

Sophie Webb

708.jpg After graduating with an MA (Hons) Psychology, I knew I wanted a business degree to improve my appeal to prospective employers. I chose Bath ultimately because of the reputation of the School of Management and the breadth of courses which were available on the MSc in Management.

I was particularly interested in the MSc because of the opportunity to study a spectrum of core subjects in the first semester and then being offered that chance to specialise if I wished. I strongly believe that the degree has given me a real edge in the competitive job market having built my business acumen, team-working, leadership, communication and organizational skills.

Jindu Chen

709.jpg The MSc in Management has enabled me to specialise in my favourite business area in the second semester and for my dissertation. I found that few other business schools offered this course structure, because it requires a huge amount of optional courses to satisfy students’ needs in 5 different routes. Bath School of Management makes this programme work extremely successfully; this reflects its competitive advantage in academic expertise in so many areas.

Throughout the MSc, I was continuously challenged and given the opportunity to study along-side inspirational students from 38 countries. This interaction was the most exciting and fascinating aspect of the programme. In my Operations group, 7 group members were from 7 different counties.

Overall, the year spent studying the MSc in Management was the most challenging and rewarding year in my life, and it definitely helped me to become an all-round, knowledgeable and international team-player.
