Description

Advertisement

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.
