Career opportunities

As a result of the comprehensive curriculum associated with this course, candidates are exposed to an array of management subjects. This offers a very solid grounding in the principals and practices of business/management, which can enable greater mobility in the workplace. Candidates on the course generally hold a junior or middle management roles in an organisation. Many candidates have developed skills in a particular skill set and wish to further their career by development of more general management skills. Previously, we have had students and graduates with prior qualifications and experience from the engineering, science, law, arts, technology and medical backgrounds.

For those interested in moving into or upwards in general business/management, this programme will help you to develop:

  1. An advanced knowledge of theoretical business models and conceptual frameworks and the ability to apply them to real business situations.
  2. The capacity to identify and critically review business problems and provide solutions in local and international settings.
  3. The ability to demonstrate unique interpersonal, communication and leadership skills resulting from group interaction, group (4) assignments, case discussions and presentations.
  4. The skills to undertake and complete independent research and project work.
