The MSc Management programme is aimed at students who are looking to enhance their prior qualifications with a business/management specialisation (Purpose).

We encourage students to be active, courageous and autonomous learners, whose objective is to both understand and challenge current approaches to management and to make strides in reimagining a future practice of management (Education and subject/discipline/professional values).
