The programme is structured into three components; five core foundation subjects (70 credits), one of two specialist pathways (50 credits), and a dissertation (60 credits). The MSc Management programme is assessed by coursework only; there are no exams.
Each taught module has the following structure:
Individual Coursework: 80%
Group Coursework: 20%
Coursework can take the form of short essays, extended essays, reports and presentations, through which students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
Taught modules contribute two thirds of the overall degree (120 credits). The final assessment is the 60 credit dissertation (10,000 – 12,000 words), where students conduct their own research aligned to their pathway under the guidance of a supervisor.
Students undertaking the Entrepreneurship & Innovation pathway will also be encouraged to explore starting-up their own business.
