Each module offers a combination of practical and research focused activities that reflect the realities of present day management. The modules that comprise the MSc have been chosen because we recognise that the primary goal of management is to ensure viable and continuing organisations. Successful completion will provide you with the skills and knowledge to think strategically in both financial and management terms.

You’ll be taught by a small, experienced and dedicated team of staff. Ample opportunity is provided to discuss issues that are of direct concern to you and, if relevant, to your own organisation.
