Program Description:

Whatever the discipline of your first degree, you can add another dimension to your knowledge – that of high-level business activity and managerial decision making. Our programme allows you to improve your employability and boost your career prospects. The overall aim of the MBM is to bring graduates of any discipline up to speed in the terminology, techniques and skills required to become a business leader. This programme is a fully qualified masters programme and is recognised around the globe as a leading educational qualification. Designed specifically for those new or recent graduates who have little or no work experience, our programme goes beyond just instilling in you a thorough grounding in vital business processes and management practices, and the contexts in which they operate. It will challenge you to explore your self-awareness, your value system and your motivations. You will sharpen your critical thinking skills and establish your own individual innovative style and creative approach so when you address your final successful career choice, you will be a confident, resourceful and adaptable manager. Building on the programme’s core of strategic level business and management principles, we will introduce you to theories and practices that will deepen your understanding of relevant disciplines and functions that operate in contemporary organisations. This is a conversion course for graduates of any discipline, which prepares you for the world of business. No prior work experience is required. The first half of the course introduces you to all the key business functional areas, after which you develop the areas of interest for your future career by taking relevant electives and a project of your choice. You can opt to choose two elective modules to pursue from a range that includes finance, operations and logistics, international business, marketing, tourism and hospitality, and operations and international supply chains. You will also focus on a subject to study in substantial depth for your final practical project. If you choose both the electives and project topic from the same subject area, you will be awarded a specialist MSc in Business Management. Note: the specialisms can only be studied on the September start.
