If you want to become a manager or leader in a technology-based organisation, then this degree is for you. We’ll equip you with the analytical tools and techniques to improve internal and external operations, as well as an understanding of the processes and technologies used by engineering businesses.
During the course you’ll develop skills in the research, analysis and evaluation of complex business problems, and gain a methodical understanding of the functional relations between business divisions that can optimise efficiency and competitiveness. Modules include: Financial Analysis and Control Systems; Strategic Marketing; Organisations, People and Performance; Logistics and Operations Management; Project Planning, Management and Control; Operations Strategy for Industry; Product Design and Development; Quality Reliability and Maintenance; Manufacturing Technology.
Our graduates are employed as managers or leaders of business development, manufacturing, quality assurance, human resources or customer service in a variety of sectors.
Taught material is a blend of lectures, seminars, syndicate activities, practical exercises and case studies to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the material. Module leaders are experts in their fields and are supported by external speakers working in organisations at the forefront of their fields.
After graduating with my Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and then working for four years as a Commissioning Engineer in the Power and Energy industry, my knowledge and background were purely technical.
When I moved across from a technical to a management position, I realised that being good in maths, technical applications and logic doesn’t guarantee that you can be a good manager or a leader (although having those skills and knowledge do help along the way). That is why I went to WMG, to improve my skills in management, and their MSc in Engineering Business Management provides a broad, deep and integrated understanding of the main business functions within a modern, international context, rather than specialising in one particular business area, which is perfect for me. On top of that, I’ve gained more friends that have a similar wavelength of thinking and interest from different industries.
I would definitely recommend anyone to pursue their study with WMG, and to be honest, I do miss it!
