MSc in Management
The MSc in Management has been developed to satisfy the demand for courses which combine a strong theoretical foundation with a firm focus on practical application. You will be exposed to the most current schools of thought in disciplines such as international business, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship and strategy.
About this Course
The course also provides a series of elective modules for students to explore other areas of interest or to emphasise their development on a specific area of their choice. Development of effective managerial skills which include analytical problem solving, decision-making, effective communication and leadership, are encouraged throughout the course. Such skills provide strong tools which can be applied in real day-to-day management situations and serve graduates to aim at higher management positions within the organisation.
Who is the course for?
The course is aimed at anyone following a career path which requires them to step into the middle to top management positions. Additionally, the course can provide a transition stage for graduates from other disciplines who wish to move into the management arena either as practitioners, researchers or consultants.
