Course Summary

Strategic management and leadership are what drive successful companies forward, shaping their decision making and helping them achieve their ambitions. Without a strong strategic plan, organisations cannot function at a competitive level, so you will be a key player in your company’s success. Open to business, management or economics graduates, this MSc is a specialist programme that will build on your existing skills and knowledge and develop them to Masters level.

The programme introduces students to advanced management concepts through a combination of core foundation subjects alongside the Strategy pathway. Students also have the opportunity to choose a mixed pathway route, tailoring the programme to their exact requirements.
