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).

We value research-led learning and thus aim to provide a learning environment that will nurture informed and critical approaches to the study of management (the nature of the learning environment for students).

This programme focuses on approaches such as case study analysis, group project work and business skills development. By participating in a strategy simulation exercise, students have an opportunity to experience the difficulties associated with management in a dynamic competitive market (key approaches to teaching, learning and assessment).

On successful completion of the programme students should be able to:
