Course Summary

This course is designed to develop the general management skills you need in the rapidly changing economic environment. As well as giving you the underpinning knowledge and understanding required to operate effectively in a managerial role, the course will develop your analysis, problem-solving and proactive-thinking skills. As the course progresses, the emphasis evolves from operational to a strategic approach. Studying the Management MA will give you opportunities to gain immediately applicable skills and managerial awareness; whilst learning about other organisations’ processes and practices from peers and case study analysis.

Students are supported via the Virtual Learning Environment accessing their modules on the Blackboard site and availing of current journals and e-books as well as podcasts and other supporting resources. Onsite students can make appointments with librarians for specific search support or attend speaker’s evenings or study skills ribbon workshops. Each student has a personal tutor and we also provide additional support for dyslexic and disabled students. Students who successfully complete this Master's degree are eligible for a student membership with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). This gives you access to the CMI professional network and opportunities to attend events and get the latest news from the sector of leadership and management.

A highlight for many students is the residential weekend organised as part of this course – a weekend away combining presentations and workshops with great opportunities to network and get to know your fellow students. Additional networking events with management professionals are also organised throughout your course. Students on this course benefit from free access to part of the material on the course reading list.

Our graduates occupy a variety of roles in both multinational organisations and small and medium-size enterprises. When you graduate you will be equipped to pursue a career in specialist areas of business, including financial services, operations, human resources, sales and marketing. Some of our graduates are employed in companies such as Accenture, Procter & Gamble and Unilever as well as the NHS and local councils.
