Course content

This ground-breaking programme, taught jointly by the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion, brings together the important areas of politics and management with an interdisciplinary lens. It enables you to develop a sophisticated understanding of social, political, organisational and managerial processes and of the connections between them.

The programme is based around three core modules; The Rise of Management Ideas and Concepts, Analysing Management in Practice and the Dissertation, to which you add further modules from the departmental catalogue of modules some examples of which are shown under Course Structure (please note, these are subject to change).

It provides an ideal foundation for careers in all kinds of cross-national organisations, from multinational companies to NGOs or international bodies such as the European Union or United Nations.
