MSc Management with specialist pathways


Who is it for? You are a recent graduate in any discipline who is seeking to pursue a career in management. You will be confident in handling quantitative data and in undertaking numerate analysis and be keen to understand more about systems and processes.


About the Course


The MSc Management programme aims to equip graduates from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds with the knowledge and implementation skills to pursue careers in management. The programme is specifically designed to meet a real and growing demand amongst well-qualified young people. Increasingly, employers are seeking graduates with skills and knowledge which are not found (or perceived by employers to be found) among many recent graduates. The programme aims to provide such skills and knowledge and thus to give you a competitive advantage in the graduate management and management trainee market in the UK and throughout the world.


An MSc stands for a Master of Science and indicates that the qualification has been orientated to a scientific, quantitative and analytical discipline. In the MSc Management you will have a choice of four pathways: International, Human Resources, Marketing and Financial Analysis. All students enrolled on the programme complete common core subjects, with modules which will allow you to specialise in your chosen pathway.


All pathways consist of two taught semesters and one further semester where you will complete a dissertation. Work on the dissertation normally commences in the second semester and is submitted at the 12 month point. The dissertation is related to the subject pathway followed and will allow you to apply the knowledge, skills and competences developed in semesters one and two.
