Course content

How is management changing? How do the actions of managers impact society, the economy and the political environment?

This course is perfect if you do not have a first degree in business, or relevant work experience, but want to study management from both critical and operational perspectives to improve your employability.

You study a broad range of managerial disciplines and examine how they relate to the wider political, social and economic context. You graduate not just with the ability to excel in a management career, but with the capacity to shape organisations for the better.

You explore issues such as:

  • contemporary management challenges
  • ethics and corporate governance
  • marketing theory and practice
  • environmentally sustainability
  • financial decision making
  • corporate social responsibility.

You also have the opportunity to develop expertise in a chosen area of management, putting theory into practice by conducting a case study of the performance of an organisation.

MSc Management is taught at Essex Business School, champions of responsible management and sustainable business. As an internationally diverse school, our students and staff join us from across the globe.
