Course Summary

Designed in line with ESRC guidelines, the MRes Management offers a solid foundation for doctoral studies in management. The programme combines in-depth study of a specialist management topic of your choice and applied training in management research methods. It provides an integrated ESRC pathway into your management PhD.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • This MRes Management will equip you with theoretical knowledge of your chosen specialist research topic in management, as well as the qualitative and quantitative skills necessary to become a successful management researcher or analyst.
  • You will learn how to identify research questions, design and manage research projects, and prepare high quality research proposals. You will create your own research proposal and gain applied training that is tailored to your specific research topic.
  • At an early stage of the programme you will be allocated a supervisor who will support you in designing and implementing your own research project using the research methods, tools and techniques that you acquire throughout the year.
  • Class sizes are small for the core specialist management courses, which facilitates an interactive learning environment.
  • Throughout the year you will have the opportunity to take part in research workshops, seminars, and conferences, as well as social and guest speaker events that we organise for our PhD students.

CAREER PROSPECTS

By the end of the programme you will have the knowledge and skills that will equip you to undertake independent research at the frontier of the management field. This will enable you to pursue further PhD research or to take up employment in policy or practice that relies on management research. Graduates can pursue careers in management, including local and national government, business, and industry. Possible professions include management consultant, analyst or research project manager. The vast majority of our graduates have continued onto a PhD in management. We have a dedicated careers and employability team who provide 1-2-1 support and advice, group workshops, employer events on campus and networking opportunities throughout the year to help you with your careers prospects.
