MSc/PGDip/PGCert Management

Our accredited Management MSc will prepare you for a wide range of careers in management with specialisms available in Human Resource Management, Entrepreneurship, and International Management.

During the course you’ll be working on case studies and live client projects. There’s also an option of paid work experience which will help you put the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice as you prepare for future management roles. There's also an option of taking an additional semester to study abroad.

Initially, you will complete the same core modules as on other management courses. At the end of term two you will then be able to specialise in one of three areas:

Management (Entrepreneurship) MSc
Management (Human Resource Management) MSc
International Management MSc

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), this course progresses you towards Chartered Manager status – the highest level that can be achieved in the management profession. You will also be eligible for membership to the Institute of Directors.

Course structure

An innovative alternative to a MBA, this one-year, full-time course is designed for graduates of any subject with or without work experience. Case studies, live client projects, company visits and the option of paid work experience help prepare you for management by putting the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice.

Teaching takes place over three terms, from late September to early June, with breaks after assessments in mid-December to early January and late March to mid-April.

Class attendance averages 14 to 18 hours a week, plus time for group work and independent study, with variations as you progress through the course. There are some special intensive workshops on topics such as leadership, management and research, and a one-week tutor-led international study visit to companies in another European country.

Your final project will take place over the summer after teaching finishes. Your optional work-experience based final project may continue for up to one-year past the end of teaching.

Career prospects

This degree will prepare you for various careers in international management, consultancy and some areas of functional management. It will also prove valuable if you are interested in starting your own business or pursuing work as a business negotiator, commercial interpreter, lecturer or researcher.

Students will also exit with Pgdip/Pgcert.
