Management Studies

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Management programs help prepare students for entry-level positions by teaching various management principles. These often include problem solving, organizational behavior, and decision-making. Management courses may also focus on teaching the leadership skills necessary to become a manager.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Scotland is at the north of Great Britain and has over 790 islands. The capital is Edinburgh, one of the largest financial centers. Their educational system has always been distinct from the rest of UK. Scotland has 15 universities, some of which are oldest in the world.

STUDY MANAGEMENT IN THE UK

Across The Pond partners with some of the top UK universities for business, across a variety of general and specialized disciplines. The UK has long been a major contributor to industry, and students who study in the UK benefit from intensive learning, opportunities to find work placements, and a concentration on both academic skill and employability.

BENEFITS OF STUDYING BUSINESS IN THE UK Shorter courses: Most Master’s programs are only one year long, and most undergraduate programs are only three years long. That said, an undergraduate student may choose to pursue a longer course with a placement or study abroad year. Focus: UK universities do not require general education courses; students will be focusing on business from Day 1! Employment opportunities: Many universities in the UK focus on having staff that are active in their fields, helping to provide an employability perspective and to generate learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Furthermore, many business courses offer the opportunity to take on a placement, whether as an additional year on the degree or as a short-term opportunity for the degree. Either way, UK universities encourage students to be prepared for the workforce upon graduation. HOW CAN ACROSS THE POND HELP? ... [-]
