Course summary

Course summary

Successful managers need to know how people behave, the nature of leadership and sources of power and influence within the workplace. They must also plan, prioritise, develop new processes and identify new opportunities. That’s why our MA provides a broad understanding of business – from finance and people management to operations, communications and marketing. You’ll graduate with the all-round expertise and decision-making capabilities required to lead modern organisations.

Whether you aim to be self-employed, head your own company or work for private businesses, not-for-profits or government agencies, this course is designed to develop the general management skills you need in the rapidly changing economic environment.

Blending theory and practice, our teaching is designed to equip you with the knowledge, competencies, analytical and problem-solving skills around the management of organisations and how to apply this to management problems and situations. As the course progresses, the emphasis evolves from operational and tactical to a more strategic approach.

You’ll study other organisations’ processes and practices through a variety of real-life case study analysis, which helps you understand why companies have been successful or have experienced turmoil over the years. You’ll have access to a wide range of electronic and online media resources, as well as traditional face-to-face teaching and opportunities to learn from each other.

A highlight for many students is the Management Residential – a weekend away combining presentations and workshops with great opportunities to network, get to know your fellow students and learn from each other’s experiences. You’ll be given a series of tasks designed to develop essential skills, such as team building, leadership, delegation and communications.

When you graduate you’ll have the core management skills needed to give you flexibility to pursue a career in general management or specialist areas of business, including financial services, operations, human resources, sales and marketing. Our graduates are employed in companies such as Accenture, Procter and Gamble and Unilever, as well as the NHS and local councils, while others have set up their own companies.
