Course content

The MSc Management and Strategy is a cutting-edge programme in managerial economics, designed to develop your analytical and critical skills in the core strategic issues facing managers and organisations in today’s fast-moving global business world.

The programme will give you a fundamental understanding of incentives and governance, organisational design, individual and group decision-making, and strategy in competition and markets. With a strong focus on economic business analysis, you will learn to rigorously examine managerial challenges using economic techniques, and to recommend your own innovative, intelligent solutions.

You will also develop a critical understanding of the wider socio-economic environment in which businesses across the globe operate, giving real world relevance to your managerial skills, and providing the training you will need to deal with unknown future challenges in the global economy across your lifetime career.

The programme links critical analysis with practice, by combining the analytical rigour of an economics degree with real-world, contemporary case studies used in MBAs. Throughout the programme you will be challenged to understand and apply cutting-edge managerial and economic theory to examples from the real world.

You will graduate as a skilled analytical manager, with well-rounded intellectual and practical skills which are highly sought after by employers.

You do not require prior knowledge of economics, but you will need a basic interest in, and openness to, economic reasoning. The programme is aimed at students who have some quantitative background (e.g. a first degree in engineering, science, or a social science), with some quantitative training in elementary calculus and basic statistics. The programme will appeal to students with a degree in an economics or management-related subject who are looking for a more rigourous approach to management.
