Program Description

MSc Advanced Business Management

University of East Anglia Faculty of Social Sciences

Have you thought about what you know and what you do not know? Do you want to go one step further in your education? This is the perfect opportunity for you to improve your curriculum and decide the next steps in your career.

The master in Advanced Business Management offers a great opportunity to acquire subject-specific knowledge which will enable you to apply it in a work context, or in an academic context. This means you gain both research skills and transferable skills for the work place.

Research lead

As the MSc includes a dissertation, you can use this master as a bridge to do your PhD

  • You will have one year to discover which topics related to business management you like the most
  • You will know the latest theories on business management
  • You will identify gaps in a specific research field and will fill this gap by doing your thesis after finishing this master.

Employability lead

If you decide to look for a job when finishing the master you will have advanced skills to work in a company, as you will be able to:

  • Analyse the work context from an evidence-based perspective
  • Identify problems and needs: What has to be done?
  • Plan organisational interventions to improve processes and results.

What about the modules, the lecturers and the assessment?

A wide range of topics: 6 modules and one dissertation will provide you with a wide range of skills that will make you more employable. You get advanced knowledge not on one specific area of management but on different areas (i.e., finance, corporate governance, marketing, innovation, organisational behavior, research methods). It increases the chances to get a job and gives you more ideas to do a PhD.

A team of experts: The lecturers are experts in the area and do research on those topics. It is a great opportunity for you to get in contact with research groups at Norwich Business School. You will know the ground breaking literature on business management and will learn how to do research on business management in a safe environment, supported by high quality researchers with international recognition.

Strong support network: We have an “active learning” approach, which means that you are the protagonist of your learning process. For that reason, you will mainly have coursework where you will critically analyse different aspects of business management. Do not worry, you will have our support, and in the dissertation module, your supervisor will be an expert in the topic and will guide you during the whole process.

Hear from our students

“I studied a BSc in Business at UEA and then worked in industry for two years before returning to UEA to join the Advanced Business Management course. I knew I wanted to gain further knowledge in my area of study however there wasn’t many courses in the UK which offer a direct MSc route if you have studied Business at Undergraduate level, so this course is exactly what I was after. The course gave me the extra in-depth knowledge of business which has helped me secure a role on a highly competitive graduate scheme. The knowledge and confidence I gained on this course set me apart from others.

  • Harry Fish, MSc Advanced Business Management Graduate

I really enjoyed studying on the MSc Advanced Business Management course. I learnt how to work with different people, from different countries, pushing me to development my skills in team work. The course was taught in small groups which allowed me to build good relationships with other students and with the approachable academics. There are a variety of modules allowing me to gain skills in different areas of business, and many of the modules were interactive. The course really pushed me and I believe it will open many doors for me and help support my dream of opening my own business and being my own manager.
