Course content

The intensive advanced study introduces students of this interdisciplinary programme to core concepts, techniques and debates in management. You take a total of 11 core courses and electives. The programme is aimed at students who have just finished their degree (in any discipline except business and management-related majors), who have achieved the equivalent of a first-class, and who have less than one year of professional experience at the start of the programme.

Educational aims

  • to give students with a strong performance in other disciplines at the first-degree level an understanding of the academic discipline of management; and
  • to give students the opportunity to acquire and develop skills and expertise relevant to high-level management practice.

This is achieved by:

  • providing students with the guidance necessary to acquire a deep understanding of the theory and practice of management;
  • analysing, in lectures, discussions and written work, the key techniques, conceptual issues and debates in the academic management literatures and in the practice of management;
  • supporting students in the development of an understanding and a critical perspective of management;
  • providing teaching in a range of technical/specialist subjects central to the study of the different branches of management; and
  • examining students formally on their knowledge of the theory and practice of management.
