Course content

Our accredited Management MSc programme will prepare you for a wide range of careers in management. The Management (Public Services) MSc focuses on developing your understanding of the unique management challenges and political drivers within public services and not-for-profit organisations.

Public services often represent the largest body of employers. Together with non-profit organisations, they employ more than 20% of the workforce in many countries, and that figure is growing every year.

On this course, 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.

All students on our Management MSc programme complete the same core modules covering the major functions of management until the end of term two, at which point you will be able to tailor the course to your individual strengths and career aspirations through option modules, the option of an additional semester to study abroad, a specialism in one of five areas or a continuation of a more generalist route with our Management MSc.

The other specialisms offered are:

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.
