The MSc Management is an exciting one year masters course open to applicants from all backgrounds, but primarily aimed at students who have not previously studied business and management.
Managers are agents of change, innovators and social and business entrepreneurs. Managers are critical, challenging, independent and creative thinkers. Managers have impact on their environment. The course will enable you to develop the necessary skills to foster different ways of thinking, different ways of viewing and understanding organisations.
- Starting with a pre-course workshop in September to give you an intensive induction, then through lectures, case studies, seminars and group project-based work during the core modules, you'll be challenging established models of thinking, critically reflecting on contemporary management and looking at alternative ways of organising.
- Sustainability, innovation and social responsibility will be key themes during the course alongside skill-building in key areas such as marketing, accounting and human resource management.
- During the third semester alongside the business project, you'll meet speakers from industry and academia, who'll provide thought-provoking and inspirational perspectives from their own experience, facing and critiquing current business and management challenges.

Course staff are involved in a various research centres across the School and you will be encouraged to attend seminars that might be of interest.
