Description

Designed for

Our MSc in e-Business Management has been designed for those who wish to operate effectively in the e-business environment and manage either the transformation of existing business processes or creation of new e-business activity.

The course is suitable for graduates from a whole range of science, engineering and business backgrounds as well as those with a qualification in IT.

We will provide you with

The techniques to evaluate and manage strategic development of e-business based organisations and manage appropriate enabling e-business technologies

You will learn how to evaluate, manage and improve the operational functions of an organisation and apply the concepts of systems integration to the design and development of products and services through market analysis.

After You Graduate

Graduates can expect to be employed in information technology and software related companies, enterprises with existing or developing online e-business initiatives, particularly those in the engineering and/or manufacturing sector.

Successful alumni often go into IT and e-business consultancy roles, both self-employed and in large consultancy groups.

Contents

All courses are structured so that you take a combination of ten modules, complete ten post module assignments and execute a major research project.

All courses start on 30th September and last 12 months.

The Project represents 50% of the Masters credit and students should work on it throughout the year, alongside their modules.

The taught part of the MSc consists of ten modules. Modules are generally taught in intensive one-week blocks from Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 6.30pm. They are taught through a variety of learning activities: lectures, seminar work, syndicate group activities, industrial games, practical exercises and case studies to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the material. E-learning and forum activities are widely used to complement these activities.

These week long sessions (normally 10 in total over the course of the academic year) are scheduled at intervals from October through to June and attendance is compulsory. Modules are assessed by assignment, not exam.

Course Structure

Core Modules

Core modules are specified for each of the MSc courses and these are the modules you must do. The core modules for each course are listed on the relevant course pages. On some courses it is possible to gain exemption from a core module if you have relevant prior study or work experience in that area. If you are exempted from attendance on a module, you must make up for it by selecting an additional Elective Module. We will explain how to apply for exemption from core modules once you start the course.

Elective Modules

In addition to the compulsory core modules you must select additional Elective Modules from this list of modules. You should select sufficient elective modules to bring your total number of modules to ten. For some courses there is a list of recommended electives, but we will try to accommodate your wishes wherever possible. You do not need to select elective modules in advance, we will explain how you choose electives once you start the course in October.

Post Module Assignments

At the end of every module you will be given a post module assignment (PMA). This is a piece of assessed, written work which you must complete in your own time. It should take you 40-60 hours to complete and the submission deadline is four weeks after the end of the module. The assignment is marked by the tutor.

Project

At the same time as the modules and assignments, you must undertake a major individual research project. This is 50% of the overall credit and must be submitted in the form of a dissertation around the end of August. Once you have submitted your dissertation you must attend an oral exam where your Project Supervisor and an independent supervisor will discuss your project with you. Both your dissertation and the oral will be marked.

You do not need to choose your project in advance, you will be provided with a list of projects soon after you start the MSc course. You must choose a project relevant to your degree which is in line with your research interests. All projects are supervised by a WMG member of staff or associate. Many projects relate closely to research developments in industry or research at WMG.

Academic Regulations

For the award of MSc you must:

  • Successfully attend and complete nine modules.
  • Pass nine post module assignments with all scores 50% or higher.
  • Pass the project with at least 50% on the dissertation and a pass awarded for the oral component.

You can elect to attend ten modules if you wish, in which case we will generally consider your best nine assignment marks.

Requirements

For our MSc programmes you should normally have obtained at least the equivalent of a UKsecond class honours degree, or an equivalent qualification in a science, engineering, IT, business or management discipline. There are some exceptions according to specific courses so please see the the individual course pages for entry requirements to your chosen programme.

WMG and University of Warwick have representatives in several countries worldwide. If you are applying from overseas and would like advice or assistance in country, you can find a list of our international representatives here. Of course you can always email our admissions team in the UK for advice too.

Please note that due to a software fault, our online application system does not currently work with Chrome. You may also experience problems on iOS devices such as iPad and iPhone. We apologise for this. In the meantime, please use another browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Firefox).

You can apply now, even if you do not yet have all the necessary documents ready; if necessary we will make you a conditional offer until you provide them.

You will need to provide:

  • A completed application form & application fee.
  • A Personal Statement, which can be included in the online application.
  • A transcript of marks awarded so far (if you are currently studying) OR a final transcript / degree certificate* (if you have completed your studies).
  • English test result (if applicable)
  • Two references. If you completed studies less than 2 years ago, these should be academic references.

The easiest way to apply us using our online application form. You do not have to complete the application process in one go, you can work through it at your own pace and it is only when you click "submit" that your application is sent to us.

*Please note: Whilst scanned copy documents uploaded online can be used to consider your application, should you be made an offer you will be required to supply either the original or valid copies of your degree transcripts/certificates (officially translated if applicable).

Please only apply for ONE of our courses, do not submit multiple applications to WMG. Once accepted onto one MSc course, you can request a switch to another, although restrictions apply.

There is a £35 non-refundable fee which must be paid to the University before your application can be processed.

English Requirements

Studying at Warwick requires a high level of competence in English. If you are a non-native English speaker you must show English test results equivalent to IELTS 6.5 with broadly consistent scores in the elements of the test. We accept IELTS, Pearson Test in English (Academic) and TOEFL (iBT).

We do not recognise any other English testing system and we do not routinely carry out English proficiency interviews as a substitute for English test results.

If you do not quite meet these standards, but have an overall IELTS score of 6.0 (or equivalent), we may be able to offer you a place conditional on you attending a 5 or 10 week pre-sessional English course. Students intending to take the pre-sessional course prior an MSc should still apply to WMG.

If you have undertaken three or more years of academic study in higher education in a predominantly English-speaking country, you may be considered for exemption from these English requirements at our discretion.

We do not normally require English test results from students from Nigeria.
