Course content

Our Master's in Management (with Professional Placement) is designed to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills in business and management which reflect relevant research, best practice and innovative thinking to enhance your employability.

Designed for those wishing to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to their studies and seeking exposure to the widest possible range of business disciplines, our programme is the first step for you to start an exciting career in business and management.

The aim is to produce fully rounded managers by combining a detailed treatment of subjects concerned with the management of organisations including:

  • Marketing Planning and Strategy
  • Strategic Management
  • Operations Management
  • Human Resource Development
  • Global Technology and Innovation Management

In addition, you will have the opportunity to tailor your learning to your own personal interests or planned career path. You can choose from a range of optional modules as part of our extensive postgraduate management portfolio.

Throughout this programme, you will be exposed to real business practice and learn from real-life examples, and our excellent teaching and collaboration with industry will give you an edge with employers.

Professional placement

The three-month industry placement allows you to build on the professional skills developed during the programme, and boost your practical industry experience prior to going into employment. You'll have opportunities to develop your professional network, apply knowledge to business practices, and prepare for leadership roles in your chosen field.

Placements will be sourced either by yourself or the University, and you'll receive support from our Careers Centre.
