Course summary

Management development is a term used to cover a wide range of learning activity in organisations, driven by global competition and the increased pace of change in the environment. Essentially, its purpose is to enhance the capacity of organisations, and the people within them, to successfully execute tasks and achieve specific work outcomes through effective leadership.

This MSc is for experienced graduates in management, or related areas, who are looking to enhance their subject knowledge and develop advanced research skills. The programme is particularly suitable if you are aspiring to a career with a significant focus on management and/or organisational development.

The programme will help you to develop and enhance your skills in management, reflect on your own practice and gain an excellent understanding of how creating direction and vision through communication, motivation and inspiration can aid the growth, success and sustainability of an organisation.

What will I study?

The programme covers topics including business planning and financial resource allocation, the nature of leadership and management roles, the impact and influence of development interventions on the individual and organisation, and the relationship between strategy, organisational and national cultures.

You will explore the economic and social challenges facing modern organisations and consider the trends and development in management across different sectors.

You will also be introduced to a wide range of research methods and the methodologies applicable to management research as well as being supervised and supported through both conducting research and writing a dissertation.

How will I study?

The programme will be delivered through a hybrid approach that makes use of group sessions and one-to-one meetings. The modules may be delivered weekly, in block sessions, or by some other appropriate arrangements such as audio/video conferencing or online discussions as appropriate.

Career Prospects

What are my career prospects?
