Course summary

The MSc Management Practice is a new programme suitable for experienced managers and leaders in all sizes of organisation in the private, public and third sectors. It is designed to align closely with the student's everyday work experience and to underpin working practice with a solid understanding of management theory.

The programme meets the requirements of the Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship standard, designed to develop future strategic leaders. Following successful completion of the programme, you will gain a Master's degree in Management Practice and in addition, you will be assessed for Chartered Manager or Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) status, or membership or fellowship of the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), depending on your experience.

The programme will help you to advance your professional career by developing a theoretical understanding of higher-level management skills which can be applied to everyday work as a leader or manager. It is for those already in full-time employment (30 hours a week minimum), and fees are covered by the employer’s apprenticeship levy.

TEACHING

Teaching may include formal lectures, seminars, and practical classes and tutorials. Formal lectures are used in most degree programmes to give an overview of a particular field of study. They aim to provide the stimulus and the starting point for deeper exploration of the subject during your own personal reading. Seminars give you the chance to explore a specific aspect of your subject in depth and to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow students. They typically require preparatory study.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework. The methods of assessment on this course are specified below under 'Methods of assessment on this course'. You will need to allow time to complete coursework and prepare for exams.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

This programme leads to CMI or ILM Member or Fellow status, depending on the amount of management experience achieved.

Since this is an employer-funded award, it is envisaged that the programme will enhance your prospects for advancement in your current organisation.
