This MSc is designed to provide students who have limited or no work experience with a comprehensive and solid grounding in organisational behaviour and its applications to management. The programme complements the other specialist MSc degrees within the EROB group and the broader portfolio of degrees offered in the Department of Management.
The programme can be taken as a free-standing one year degree, or serve as the entry year to the Group's doctoral programme. If you intend to follow the latter route then you should state this clearly in your application, together with a brief indication of your likely field of doctoral research. If you complete the MSc with a Merit or Distinction and select a research topic which we feel able to supervise you may proceed directly to MPhil registration.
The programme consists of four compulsory half unit courses and an empirical based 10,000 word research dissertation. Courses offer discipline-based teaching in Organisational Change, Leadership, Organisational Theory, Cross Cultural Management and Managing Diversity in Organisations. Students will select two options from the list below or will choose two methodology courses if they intend to pursue the Group PhD upon completion of the programme.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Minimum entry requirement: 2:1 or first class degree preferably in a management related discipline or psychology.
No work experience is required.
