  • Objectives
    The MA in Management will help you to gain a broad understanding of business by exposing you to different aspects of it and by showing you how it all fits together. Developing an holistic view of the way in which business works is vital. On graduation it is likely that you will move into a functional business area but understanding how that fits into the wider business context will make you much more effective in your role. The programme will also help you develop an international dimension to your learning. No country is immune from global pressures and an awareness of these and their implication is an important part of the programme. The MA in Management is not simply an academic course. Organisations will bring into the classroom real-life problems for you to work on and try to solve and there is a requirement that you have a short placement with a company towards the end of the programme. At Edge Hill Business School you will not simply learn about business and management. You will practice it.
