Course content

Our MSc Management is an intensive one year programme aimed at transforming recent non-business graduates into highly responsible, effective and successful decision makers in global business.

The MSc Management programme’s distinctive combination of business-focused learning encompasses theory and its application to the real world via practical case studies and hands-on tasks involving companies and other external institutions.

During the programme you will study core management modules, while tailoring your needs through a choice of pathways and summer term electives.

The pathways currently offered are:

Strategy and Leadership pathway
This pathway introduces advanced concepts in strategic management, and a practical collection of tools that can be used to be an effective leader and decision-maker. It is particularly relevant to those students targeting the consulting and financial sector, although can be applied to any future career.

Digital Business pathway
This pathway explores the economic foundations for analysing competition in digital markets and the strategic insights necessary to succeed in the digital era.

Energy Business pathway
This pathway explores the challenges of producing and trading energy sustainably in the global market place.

Financial Services pathway
This pathway introduces the foundations of two subjects, namely risk management and mergers and acquisitions. A practical understanding of these subjects is critical to successfully operate in the financial services industry.

The programme culminates with the Summer term electives where you can choose to take a combination of modules to personalise your education, specifically to your needs.

The programme also offers an intensive career development journey specifically designed for MSc Management students. This enables you to develop a deep understanding of several industries, develop personally and professionally and maximise your employability.
