Course content

Steering organisations to success in this turbulent 21st century is no mean feat, and requires a person that can ensure a company continues to adapt and thrive as the environment changes. This online MSc aims to make you that person. As you'll probably be a busy senior executive or middle manager in the UK or overseas, you'll want a qualification that can be completed in your spare time and that doesn't restrict your life. And that's exactly why an online masters is ideal for you.

Prepare to move into senior management
Moving up the management scale in any organisation requires you to become more strategic in your outlook, and to have an awareness of the wider issues at play. This MSc Strategic Management helps you develop these qualities.

Build up qualifications as you study - not just at the end
We've designed this course so that it's flexible to suit you. It will take you 26 months to study for the full MSc, depending on how much learning you can fit in around your other commitments. You gain a PG Certificate after 4 modules, a PG Diploma after 8 modules and the full Masters after 9 modules and an Independent Study. So if you really can't complete the full programme, you can still gain an award and recognition for your work.

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed semester or term time, but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.
