Degree Overview

MSc Management: Our MSc provides you with a solid grounding in key aspects in management and draws upon our areas of research expertise.

This management degree examines the essentials of management theory and practice and the core principles and practice of business and organisations in a local and international context. You will gain a broad knowledge and expertise in the design and implementation of strategy at different levels of the corporate organisation and of other types of organisation such as public, not-for-profit and cooperative. You will then use your critical analysis and independent judgement skills to write a dissertation setting out solutions to complex managerial problems in all types of organisation.

MRes Management: The MRes is designed for students with a good academic background who wish to improve their research skills and do a substantial piece of dissertation research. The research training modules are the same as those taken by our MPhil/PhD students; the MRes is suitable for students who are considering undertaking a PhD in Management. You may choose subject-specific modules from within the area of business and management, and other social science disciplines, in keeping with your individual research interests.

The MSc and MRes Management differ from the typical MBA in that they cover fewer subjects but in more depth. You will learn more than just the current management fashions and buzzwords: you will also learn about the evidence upon which management theories are based.
