What will I learn?

Our Management MSc will give you an understanding of contemporary management issues in an ever-changing business environment, and the chance to apply your knowledge to real-life management challenges.

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 equally as 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.

This intensive and demanding programme is purposely designed towards practice orientation, supplementing the knowledge participants have already acquired - either in business or in their undergraduate studies - with a thorough insight into modern management practice.

Learning outcomes
