Management is "the act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives" [Birkinshaw, Reinventing Management]
This one-year, full-time programme provides a framework for critically analysing the nature, processes and practices of management. You will explore what it is to become a manager tackling the challenges of knowing what to do and how to make things happen. Our aim is to help you develop the knowledge and skills that will help you and your organisation be successful.
The programme provides exciting opportunities: to study in a high quality environment; to be taught and guided by staff with up-to-date, practical knowledge of the key areas of management; to be assisted in job search by management careers specialists; and to gain a qualification from a top Business School in a prestigious University.
You study a mixture of core modules, elective modules and a dissertation or business project or a self-sourced placement:
Term 1 Modules
Term 2 Modules
|Term 3 - Core module, plus Dissertation or Business Project or Placement|
The programme culminates in a 10,000 word dissertation which provides an opportunity for you to investigate in greater detail a subject that you have already studied as part of your programme.
Elective modules reflect current managerial thinking, academic debate and the research interests of the School; as such they are subject to change. Those currently available include:
