About the course

This course is designed to reflect the business environment. There are two modules dedicated to real-world case studies and teamwork. We invite guest speakers from business and industry and organise field trips to leading companies. You can also apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation.

With the benefit of world-class insight from the IWP, you’ll develop the skills you need to be an effective leader, someone who can develop strategy, motivate people and nurture innovation.

Your career


Our graduates work for companies such as Adidas, ASDA, Boots, ExxonMobil, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Pepsico International, Sainsbury’s and Vodafone. Their job titles include Head of Business Enhancement, Management Consultant, Product Marketing Manager, Web Marketing Consultant and Campaign Manager.

An MBA can help you change direction or progress faster within your organisation. A specialist MSc can take you into a particular field of management such as human resources, finance or marketing. You might be inspired to set up a company of your own.

How we teach

We teach management from a truly global perspective, and our courses are based on pioneering research into the challenges faced by businesses everywhere.

We’ll teach you how to identify opportunities, solve problems and inspire others. Many of our teaching staff are world-class researchers working in policy-relevant areas. Our courses are based on their research.

We bring in guest speakers from business, local government and industry. You can apply to carry out a project with an external organisation as part of your course. We also offer you the chance to spend the summer at another university overseas.
