Master of Science in Management
The Master of Science in Management (MSM) programme offers students with four-year undergraduate commerce or business degrees, as well as graduates of other disciplines (business and non-business backgrounds) an opportunity to develop management and leadership skills appropriate for all kinds of organi- zations. The MSM programme is a 36 credit graduate programme designed to teach the behavioural and organizational aspects of management decisions and strategies.
Moreover, the MSM programme is designed to deliver quality education to adults who wish to acquire knowledge and skills that will help them:
- work more effectively with people at all levels in an organization
- function more effectively in contributing toward the achievement of organizational goals.
The programme focuses on people skills, and is ideal for managers and other professionals whose jobs require frequent interaction with other people, or leading and supervising others in an organizational set- ting.
The duration of the MSM programme is 12 months. The MSM curriculum is organized in ten 3-credit mod- ules of 45 hours, each module being taught in 4 consecutive weeks, totaling 30 credits. An Applied Man- agement Project with 6 credits completes the curriculum. The defence of the Applied Management Project must take place before the end of fourteen months starting from the first module of the course.
