Months of entry
Our MSc in Management (Operations and Project Management) is an intensive one-year programme that offers you a unique opportunity to develop your interest in operations and project management, while gaining a thorough grounding in the core management theories, concepts and skills that are essential for a career in management today. It will especially suit careers in manufacturing and production, and project-oriented areas such as consultancy, construction, product development or ICT.
You will start by studying management theory and techniques across a range of core subjects, including finance and accounting, organisational behaviour and strategic management. In term two you will start to apply your knowledge specifically to operations and project management by taking two dedicated units in these areas. Finally, in the summer term, the dissertation provides an opportunity for independent research and investigation into a particular challenge within operations and project management.
Our programme is designed for graduates of any discipline who aspire to a career in management and who have a particular interest in operations and project management. You will not require any prior academic or practical experience in business or management but would benefit from having an inquisitive mindset and a genuine interest in interrogating research in the field, to develop your knowledge and understanding for use in later practice.
You will be part of a dynamic and diverse body of staff and students, and will be taught by experienced academics. Many staff within our School of Economics, Finance and Managementare actively engaged in conducting pioneering research at international level, and our school was ranked sixth in the UK for its research impact (Times Higher Education analysis of REF 2014), reflecting the quality of our research and its role in shaping policy and practice in the UK, Europe and globally.
