Course content

Become an effective manager who can offer creative solutions to a variety of business challenges.

Managers are having to respond to an increasingly complex global business environment. Contemporary workplaces often span continents, online and offline, delivering diverse products and services in a period of economic austerity. Consequently, organisations are looking for managers who can do things differently, managers from different places and professions to lead a new movement in business.

The business of changing the world is ours.

Our MSc in Business Management starts with you. Whatever your background, we’ll bring you up to speed on the latest research and practice in business management, across core areas like marketing, strategy, finance, logistics, economics and human resources.

Our experts will help you explore key management skills so that you have the competitive edge to launch a successful management career. They’ll use internationally recognised research to share essential insights into the world of business and beyond. This research-led teaching will help you evaluate the social, economic and environmental implications of management decision making in a range of sectoral and international contexts.

Year two is spent on placement – which you’ll be responsible for finding, with support from our employability team - and is your opportunity to put theory into practice by applying Cardiff Business School know-how in a professional setting. You’ll get paid to make a difference to a public, private or third sector organisation in the UK or abroad.

Working together with industry professionals, you’ll discover new ways of doing things by challenging assumptions, taking risks and using your imagination to bring about positive change.

Fees and funding

If you’re a home-fee paying student, you can apply for a £3,000 Master’s Excellence Scholarship from Cardiff University to help cover the cost of this programme.
