About

Companies and organisations today must be able to handle what is happening globally. This requires individuals who have knowledge of management, strategy, decision-making and business intelligence. The Master Programme in Business and Management at Uppsala Universityt will give you these skills, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to acquire deeper knowledge in one of the specialisations that the programme offers. You are also given the opportunity to study commercial companies as well as governmental organisations, and non-profit organisations. The programme furthermore provides a solid foundation for future PhD studies.

The programme is characterised by innovative thinking and progress where the teaching reflects the cutting edge research carried out at the Department of Business Studies, and has three specialisations:

Marketing

Marketing plays a central role in creating, capturing, communicating and sustaining value for organisations and private individuals. By understanding customer needs, companies can provide customers with innovative solutions. Should you choose Marketing as your specialisation you will learn amongst other things; how customers use information and make active choices, how companies interact with each other on strategies for the development of new products, as well as how different choices affect customer relations and other marketing efforts. The specialisation aims to educate analytically skilled employees with a special ability to face challenges in consumer markets, industrial markets and to provide a service perspective on marketing.

Towards the end of the two-year programme, you will have developed a solid theoretical and practical foundation in marketing and an analytical ability to manage current marketing related challenges – whether you choose a career as a manager, marketer or business analysts. The programme also lays a good foundation for further research studies.

International Business

For those of you that choose International Business as your specialisation, you will go in-depth and study what it means to operate in, and manage businesses operating in international markets. You will study, among other things, issues relating to the internationalization of firms, the governance, strategy, and international human resource management of companies in international markets. A special focus is given to the multinational company. The specialisation aims to educate analytically skilled employees with a special ability to understand and manage the company's international operations.

The specialisation aims at providing knowledge and skills to carry out analytical work with qualified tasks in leadership positions, e.g. as a manager or business analyst in international companies, both in Sweden and abroad. This specialisation is therefore particularly suitable for students planning a career in international business. The programme also provides a good basis for further research studies.

Organisation

For those of you that choose Organisation as your specialisation, you will go in-depth and study the various ways in which modern organisations respond to different types of expectations and demands in their environment. This may include new regulations, demands to act ethically and in a socially responsible manner, requirements for transparency, insights into relations with media and the rest of society, or expectations to adjust to new management ideas that are currently in vogue. The specialisation aims to educate analytically skilled employees with a special ability to understand the business environment and the relationships that exist between organisations and society.

Programme Structure

Semester 1 and 2

During the first and second semester you will take courses that are common to all the participants and courses that are specific to the chosen specialisation. The common courses provide a broad knowledge in management and strategic issues, decision making and business intelligence. You are given the opportunity to study commercial companies as well as public and non-profit organisations. Below you will find a more detailed description of each specialisation:

Marketing

For those of you who choose this specialisation you will go in-depth and study both practical and theoretical issues related to marketing and marketing strategy from different perspectives. You will study among other things, marketing in consumer markets, industrial markets and a service perspective on marketing. The courses cover customers' needs and how customers use information to make active choices. Within the specialisation you will learn more about how companies interact with each other when developing new products and innovative solutions. Through lectures, seminars, case studies, simulations and direct contact with companies in Uppsala and in Stockholm you will face current strategic issues that companies face today. The specialisation is based on classical theories as well as current research in marketing, but also practical application. All courses develop and train students' analytical and critical thinking, as well as the ability to present the results and conclusions in a convincing manner, both verbally and in writing.

International Business

Within the specialisation International Business you will study what it means to work in and lead a company in international markets. The courses provide a deeper understanding of how businesses in international markets operate, act and are governed. The courses within this specialisation are based on current research, classical as well as modern theories and ideas about international business but also practical application. The teaching is varied with elements of lectures, case studies, seminars and group work. All courses develop and train the student's analytical skills and the ability to present the results and conclusions in a convincing manner, both verbally and in writing.

Organisation

Courses within this specialisation deal with both classical and modern ideas in organisation theory, and provide basic theoretical understanding of how organisations work and can be understood. They also address more specifically how today's organisations and specific occupations within those organisations meet the demands and expectations from the outside world and how they relate to new ideas on entrepreneurship and management. The focus is also on how consultants work and what role they play in the processes of change in modern organisations. All courses develop and train students' analytical and critical thinking and the ability to present the results and conclusions in a convincing manner, both verbally and in writing.

Semester 3

During the third semester, you have the possibility to undertake an internship or choose elective courses. Internships give you the opportunity for a one-term practice in a company or an organisation with the knowledge you have gained in the programmes courses. If you choose instead to take elective courses there is the opportunity of a one-term international exchange to study at one of our partner universities we have around the world. You also have the option to choose elective courses at Uppsala University. Studies abroad give you the opportunity to broaden and deepen your studies in business.

Semester 4

In the fourth and last semester you will write a 30 credit Master's thesis where you will go more in-depth within a particular area of your specialisation.
