Months of entry
Employers need managers who can navigate the complexities of business and show global awareness. Our MSc in Management will equip you with these key skills and a range of management techniques to prepare you for a successful career.
This programme is for graduates of all backgrounds who want to kick-start their management career and achieve an industry-standard level in management studies. It has been developed by Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) through a co-design approach - reviewed each year by students, alumni and business representatives to ensure continuous improvement and absolute relevance.
A key part of the MSc Management is nurturing your professional and career development. A dedicated careers adviser will help you to create a personalised career plan and you will be invited to attend employer events and access our global network of LUMS alumni.
For one week in summer, you and your peers will have the opportunity to travel to a highly-ranked overseas business school to gain invaluable experience of international commerce through company visits, seminars and workshops. In addition, you can choose to write a dissertation about an international topic at a partner business school overseas.
Another option is the summer project, working to a brief presented by a real-life company and delivering a solution and a business report. This project can then form the basis of your dissertation.
The size of our intake means connections can be forged quickly, offering you a chance to interact with peers from across the globe. This diversity and breadth of perspectives enriches our learning environment. You’ll also benefit from close contact with our faculty, which is comprised of practitioners, academics and consultants.
Here at LUMS, you will also benefit from our specialist careers support throughout your studies, and beyond graduation. We host more than 100 careers events every year, providing you with the opportunity to network with top graduate employers within the UK and overseas, and supporting you to achieve your future career aspirations.
Due to the scope of our leading Management School, the programme offers a far-reaching knowledge base that enhances your employability. Our students graduate with a comprehensive understanding of management complemented by excellent emotional intelligence. Many businesses recruit directly from this programme, making this an excellent choice to launch a successful career in management.
