Program Overview

Program Description:
Working in a large, modern, international organisation, a medium sized company or even a small start-up firm requires a range of business capabilities. The most valuable employees are those who have not only a sound knowledge and understanding of the various parts of a business but those who are quick learners and team players with leadership potential. The MSc Business with… Management programme will give students both general business knowledge and understanding as well as personal skills needed for a wide variety of roles. The programme has been developed for recent graduates in non-business disciplines who want to add a business dimension to their undergraduate specialism. This programme has been very popular and has recently been extended by the addition of several pathways. Students can now choose between a general pathway with a wide variety of optional modules and a specialist pathway in which around half of the programme is concentrated on one functional area. This is very attractive to students who are interested in a particular area of business (e.g. marketing), but still want a more general introduction to business than is available in a specialist Masters programme. Students choosing one of the pathways have the opportunity to carry out independent research in their preferred specialist area. The programme is designed around a set of modules that are common to all pathways. These modules cover general business functions, strategic management and organisational analysis. These modules also guide you towards the achievement of the generic postgraduate goals of strategic awareness, developing leadership potential and understanding the theory and practice of international business. In the second semester you will be given the opportunity to specialise in specific areas of business by choosing one of the pathways.
