Course content

If you want to orientate your earlier degree qualification towards a career in management, this Masters programme will qualify you to succeed.

Building on your graduate capabilities, you’ll gain the management and leadership skills needed to manage:

  • the business
  • people and their performance
  • crises and change
  • projects and the associated risk

You will develop strategies to deal with global challenges and opportunities facing businesses. You can combine your management studies with a wide range of specialisms, depending on your preferred career path.

Learn from case studies and real-life projects how to put the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice.

You’ll be joining leading practitioners through the university’s Distinguished Visitor and Enterprise Gym Lecture Series and hearing from them, first hand, about critical aspects of real-time management issues.

Management (MSc) is dual accredited by CMI. This means you will automatically receive a second professional qualification upon successful completion of your degree.‌

This conversion degree course includes off-campus learning events embedded in a number of its modules and an ‘urban experience’ element demonstrating the fundamental importance of team-building within a business context.
