Course content

The MSc Business Management with Professional Placement Year is a two-year master’s programme designed for students from any discipline who want to develop essential insights into the world of business and the key management skills that will provide the competitive edge needed to launch a successful management career.

The programme recognises that we live in an increasingly interconnected, complex and changing world. Consequently, beyond managing the core business, we help you evaluate the social, economic and environmental implications of management decision making in a range of sectoral and international business contexts.

In the second year of the programme you will have the opportunity to put the knowledge and skills gained in the first year into practice within your Professional Placement. Our aim is to help you become an effective manager who can offer creative solutions to a variety of business challenges.
