Entry requirements

A minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2:2). We do not specify a required degree subject with cohorts ranging across the degree disciplines. The primary requirement is the aptitude and motivation to engage with subject areas that are new, allied to an appreciation that some subject areas may require greater engagement than others in order to successfully complete the course.

We will also consider applicants with alternative professional qualifications and Continuing Professional Development records. And similarly, we would those with at least three to five years’ relevant professional experience; to qualify on this basis, you will need to be able to demonstrate clear career progression with an upward trajectory. This should include increasing responsibilities, particularly the control of resources, people, and finance. Applicants relying on work experience for admission will be interviewed to determine their suitability, motivation and aptitude for study on the courses within the programme. For non-standard entry, the course leadership team may interview applicants who may be required to complete a written piece of work.

Months of entry

Course content

This course is designed to develop the general management skills you need in the rapidly changing economic environment. As well as giving you the underpinning knowledge and understanding required to operate effectively in a managerial role, the course will develop your analysis, problem-solving and proactive-thinking skills. As the course progresses, the emphasis evolves from operational to a strategic approach.

Studying the Management MA will give you opportunities to gain immediately applicable skills and managerial awareness; whilst learning about other organisations’ processes and practices from peers and case study analysis.

Students who successfully complete this Master's degree are eligible for a student membership with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). This gives you access to the CMI professional network and opportunities to attend events and get the latest news from the sector of leadership and management.

A highlight for many students is the residential weekend organised as part of this course – a weekend away combining presentations and workshops with great opportunities to network and get to know your fellow students. Additional networking events with management professionals are also organised throughout your course.
