Good management is central to business success. Without it, there can be no cohesion, no teamwork, no real sense of direction. This programme is designed therefore to provide an insight into the theories and practical skills needed for successful management and, through that, a successful business.
It is especially beneficial for those with non-business backgrounds, perhaps in engineering, sciences, social sciences or the arts. It can be as equally effective for those yet to begin their career as those looking to make significant progress in one already begun. Blending classic management techniques with the very latest in management thinking, the MSc in Management encompasses international issues and diverse national business characteristics and settings.
An emphasis on practical skills takes students beyond the theory and into the heart of real-life management challenges via workshops, simulation exercises, teamwork and the application of strategies. The result is greatly enhanced employability from an MSc packed with the insight, theories and skills successful management depends on. 89% of our graduates are in jobs within 3 months of graduation.
Key areas graduates will develop include effective management in an ever-changing business environment, an awareness of how to analyse and resolve contemporary management problems and the ability to acquire, analyse and validate data.
The Masters in Management is geared towards providing an integrative understanding and a flexible approach to important management tasks which will enable students to acquire expertise and skills related to their interests and their intended career trajectory.
This programme is also purposely designed towards practice orientation, supplementing the knowledge participants already have acquired in their undergraduate studies, with a thorough insight into modern management practice, hence preparing them for a wide range of career destinations.
