Physics and Business Management

Course Description

A unique interdisciplinary Professional Masters degree that offers the opportunity to develop both high level physics competencies and key business management skills simultaneously.

Course Overview

This course is for graduates in Physics or related physical science subjects, with an aspiration to become senior managers in global companies or entrepreneurs, where understanding technology and the ability to manage innovation in business are key to success. It combines a core set of Business Management modules with a selected range of optional Physics modules, allowing the programme to be tailored to suit individual requirements.

Problem based learning and project work allow you to gain hands-on experience, investigating and applying topics from your lectures and seminars to real-life situations.

The research project will be carried out in conjunction with industry and will bring together both business and scientific elements to solve a business-specified problem.

You will gain the most up to date knowledge from academic staff working at the forefront of science and business, carrying out internationally excellent research at the leading edge of their subject area. You will work in an active, interdisciplinary environment, with researchers from physics, mathematics, computer science, engineering and business backgrounds, providing you with the skills to actively contribute in a diverse range of business climates. You will receive sector specific training to suit your own career objectives and be given the guidance to apply your knowledge by experts from both the business and science communities.
