Course content

Our MRes Management and Organisation is designed for those wishing to follow a career in research and/or academia. It is ideal if you hope to progress to doctoral studies in the field of management, for example by studying for a PhD.

We equip you with the skills and knowledge to appreciate the depth and breadth of management and organisational theories and techniques and apply these within a social science context. The content of our course is a direct response to requirements for, and suggested improvements in, research training laid down by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

You deepen your thinking about management and organisations and develop a broader understanding of the changing role and contemporary perception of management.

You develop knowledge and understanding of:

  • research skills, including both quantitative and qualitative approaches
  • theoretical stances underpinning different approaches to research
  • how to design a research proposal, including construction of research questions and/or hypotheses
  • management of a research project

You study at Essex Business School, ranked in the top 25 in the UK for research excellence and intensity (REF, 2014). More than 90% of our research submissions were assessed as of international quality and 72% of our research was deemed world leading or internationally excellent in the 2014 REF. We are an internationally diverse school, with our current Masters students joining us from more than 40 countries.

Our MRes Management and Organisation is also available to study part-time and you may be eligible for scholarships and discounts. Postgraduate loans for Masters courses are now available from the Student Loans Company, worth up to £10,000, for students from the UK and EU.
