Course Summary

Our Management MSc will give you an understanding of contemporary management issues in an ever-changing business environment, and the chance to apply your knowledge to real-life management challenges.

Good management is central to business success. Without it, there can be no cohesion, no teamwork, no real sense of direction. This programme is designed therefore to provide an insight into the theories and practical skills needed for successful management and through that - a successful business. It is especially beneficial for those with non-business backgrounds, perhaps in engineering, sciences, social sciences or the arts. It can be equally as effective for those yet to begin their career as those looking to make significant progress in one already begun.

Blending classic management techniques with the very latest in management thinking, the MSc in Management encompasses international issues and diverse national business characteristics and settings.

This intensive and demanding programme is purposely designed towards practice orientation, supplementing the knowledge participants have already acquired - either in business or in their undergraduate studies - with a thorough insight into modern management practice.

Learning outcomes

During the course of their studies students will have gained knowledge and understanding to be able to: Demonstrate a general knowledge framework and understanding of key functions in management as applied in practice. Obtain through electives in-depth knowledge and understanding in more specific management related areas. Identify and appreciate the ethical issues in management decision areas. Obtain an understanding of how to undertake qualitative and quantitative research and apply this knowledge in the context of a major independent work (e.g. final dissertation).

Modules

The Dissertation aims to make a study in depth of a topic in which the student is particularly interested in within the field of management. It allows the student to gain experience of planning, designing, executing and reporting a significant piece of individual research. Experience is also gained in the processes involved in research, such as obtaining information from people, securing their co-operation, analysing and evaluating data, framing recommendations, and other methods of field study and data collection. Students learn how to communicate complex ideas and information in a coherent and structured manner.
