The MSc in Applied Management and Sustainability is designed for students who wish to develop management skills with a clear emphasis on sustainable business models, entrepreneurship and innovation. The course provides the skills required to start new businesses or manage innovation in existing businesses to work towards a sustainable future.
Initially, MSc students take a number of management topics that will provide the understanding, knowledge and skills necessary to undertake a project with an applied sustainability/innovation focus. In the second stage of the programme, students start a project to develop a business case from concept to full board proposal and will provide students with the opportunity to develop the business acumen, skills and confidence to contribute to business at all levels. In the third and final stage students have the opportunity to study the principles of business from their own perspective and then finalise their business proposal project.
On completion, students will have gained a detailed understanding of the context in which future businesses must operate.
We have the prestigious EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) which is the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration run by the European Foundation for Management Development. All our Management MSc programmes are among the relatively small number of programmes to have received pre-experience master's in general management (PEMM) accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
