What will I learn?

Management for Business Excellence MSc is an innovative Master's in Management. Warwick Manufacturing Group has expertly designed this MSc for those wanting to become effective leaders and managers of business excellence in industry.

Course Overview

The framework for the Management for Business Excellence degree is the European Excellence Model, created to help organisations develop towards the achievement of sustainable excellence. This course is all about understanding how organisations work; it takes a holistic look at organisations, the inter-relationships between departments within them, and how to optimise the use of available resources. Typically students will have a background in engineering, business management, finance or economics, but MBE is open to graduates from any academic discipline.

Teaching

This course has two components – a taught component and a research component (dissertation) each accounting for 50% of your time and effort.

For the taught component, we blend lectures with seminars, syndicate exercises, simulations, and case studies. MBE specific modules are delivered intensively over two weeks (others are taught over one week) and classes are deliberately kept small to encourage interaction. Larger scale lectures are delivered for some elective modules and are backed up by seminar and syndicate activities.

Our module leaders have extensive industry experience. Guest speakers from industry also contribute regularly, bringing real-world insight into your learning experience.

Assessment

At the end of each module, you will be given a Post Module Assignment (PMA) based on the learning objectives of that module. This is a piece of written work which should take 40-60 hours to complete. As MBE is formatively assessed, the grades for your PMA do not count towards your final degree classification, which is solely based on your dissertation grade.
