Course content

This Newcastle based business and management masters is open to those from any undergraduate background and aims to develop your leadership and management capability by enhancing your knowledge of international business management theory, whilst expanding cultural and ethical awareness.

There is a strong focus on sustainability and corporate social responsibility. You will explore how international organisations seek competitive advantage through innovation, evaluating sustainable strategies to promote business growth in a responsible way.

Benefiting from learning in exceptional teaching facilities, you will cover a range of management and leadership concepts that will consider positive and responsible change within organisations, the impact of change on individuals and issues of resilience and sustainability.

This course also aims to develop contemporary skills that will enable you to develop effective strategies to successfully build sustainable, digital enterprises. You will have the opportunity to attend a residential where you will work collaboratively with peers, enhance your leadership and team-working abilities through increased self-awareness and knowledge of group processes.

The course culminates in either a dissertation, or consultancy project- tackling an issue faced by a real client, or if you prefer, a master's management enquiry project - working with others as a team to explore a business issue. These can be related to any business and management discipline, given the wide and varied content of this master's programme.

Graduates of this course can typically expect to go into professional and graduate management position. You may choose to start a career within an industry that is related to the subject that you studied during your first degree or you may prefer to take on a completely new challenge.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

The Business with Management Masters could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.
