MSc Management


The MSc in Management is ideal for students who wish to study a broad range of management topics rather than a particular specialisation. The course includes the latest thinking and research in all the key business disciplines from Finance, Accounting and Economics, to Marketing, Operations and Human Resources.

+Course details

Initially, students take a number of compulsory modules to provide the foundations for an understanding of management. There is then the opportunity to tailor your MSc to suit your personal and particular business interests with five elective subject options to choose from an extensive range.
