About the course

Today's demanding and rapidly changing business world requires managers who can master advanced management techniques in order to deal with the complexities of an interconnected, international business environment.

The programme is designed for graduates in non-business-oriented subjects, without previous managerial experience, or those who wish to deepen their understanding of the management process.

This MSc will help you become a competent and confident professional by fostering the development of key academic knowledge as well as the necessary practical skills.

Throughout the programme you will gain a comprehensive understanding of how organisations operate. You will adopt a range of strategic and up-to-date perspectives and become proficient in functional areas including marketing, finance, and human resource management. This will significantly enhance your ability to implement change that will benefit the organisation as a whole.

You will also develop the analytical skills to make informed choices and decisions when dealing with a range of management issues, always considering the wider environment in which organisations operate and the social impact of the choices that you make.
