Course content

Our accredited Management MSc will prepare you for a wide range of careers in management with specialisms available in Human Resource Management, Entrepreneurship and International Management.

Case studies, live client projects, company visits and the option of paid work experience help prepare you for management by putting the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice. You will learn about the major functions of management and their integration.

This one-year course can be tailored to suit your individual strengths and career aspirations, including the option of an additional semester to study abroad.

  1. Management (Entrepreneurship) MSc
  2. Management (Human Resource Management) MSc
  3. International Management MSc

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), this course progresses you towards Chartered Manager status – the highest level that can be achieved in the management profession. You will also be eligible for membership to the Institute of Directors.
