  • Objectives
    The MSc Management has an overriding objective of helping to improve the quality of management, leadership and business practice in organisations. An emphasis is placed on an international perspective to ensure relevance in today's global economy. In this context, non-UK students are particularly important for enriching the overall international learning experience. The programme aims to develop a range of business knowledge and skills, together with the self-awareness and personal development appropriate to graduate/management careers in business. This includes the development of positive and critical attitudes towards leadership, change and enterprise, so as to reflect the dynamism and vibrancy of the business and management environment. The MSc Management is designed around a central core of modules which give students a thorough grounding in the basic management disciplines, followed by a series of more specialist options.

    Management of Human Resources
    Management of Human Resources is intended to provide a firm basic grounding in the 'people management' aspects of managerial roles. The module draws on literature and theory from the fields of psychology, sociology, economics and political science.

    This module provides students with a comprehensive framework for understanding marketing. Theory and case studies are used to analyse environmental conditions, marketplace trends, market characteristics, consumer behaviour, marketing strategy, marketing planning, tactics and operations, and the growing influence of technology.

    Operations Management
    Operations management relates to the scoping, planning, direction and control of the facilities, processes and people required to transform resources into products and services. The principles of operations management are used in every industry and every environment.
