Our MSc Management focuses on the study of people, processes, systems, and operations. It will provide you with an in-depth understanding of contemporary business and management issues and encourage you to critique the theories and concepts of the business and management environment.

A master’s in management will provide you with the necessary skills to develop strategies to manage global challenges and opportunities facing businesses, whether it is a business you work in, or your own business that you are looking to establish, allowing you to take your career to the next level. You will study key areas of management, including Strategic Management, Leadership, HR Management and Project Management

Open to business and non-business graduates

This degree is suitable for graduates who have completed a bachelor’s degree in a business subject, and those who have a bachelor degree in a subject different to business.

Course structure

In addition to our standard MSc Management, we also offer you the opportunity to study Management alongside another business topic. Our degrees are flexible, giving you the opportunity to focus on a specific area that interests you, whilst highlighting to future employers what your specific skills and interests are. We have six Management degree options (specialist pathways) for you to choose from. For example, you could choose to study MSc Management and International Human Resources Management, MSc Management, Strategy and Leadership, or MSc Management and Finance.

All the master’s Management degrees are made up of core modules (ones you must study) and a range of optional modules. In total, you will study nine modules across an MSc degree.
