Months of entry
The MSc Management course offers an advanced qualification combined with practical managerial experience, which will be extremely useful for graduates wishing to pursue managerial and entrepreneurial careers in industry and commerce.
The course builds on graduates’ existing experience by equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage and lead within a range of industries, the modules on the course are practical in nature and require students to carry out tasks which deliver real value and are not just academic exercises.
There is a strong practical focus on skills development. We believe that students who can demonstrate the ability to add value within a ‘live’ organisational context will always be a more attractive employment proposition than those who cannot. We provide ample opportunity for students to develop and demonstrate managerial-level knowledge and skills within the course itself. For example, students will engage in ‘live’ in-company projects with organisations throughout and within semester 1, they will be provided with the opportunity to create, and actively trade with, their own business start-up (and keep any profits!).
A 12 week ‘Internship and Management Project’ in semester 3 enables students to apply knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course to an organisational issue or problem, and, additionally, provides students with valuable experience of selling themselves to employers, gaining employment and acquiring and developing important workplace skills which will enhance their future career prospects.
