Description

Advertisement

The MSc is designed to be a vibrant and innovative programme that focuses on best practice in management and leadership while developing an international focus. QMUs mission is to enhance the well-being of individuals and the communities we serve through socially and economically relevant education and research. The MSc reflects this mission through its underpinning and distinctive identity which focuses not only on contemporary management practice but also on community engagement and service. A unique aspect of the course is the replacement of the traditional dissertation with a student led project or event. You will design, lead and reflect upon a project attached to a community, charity, or third sector enterprise. The context chosen for these projects reflects our staffs opinion that the responsibility of our graduates as managers and leaders extends not just to boardrooms and shareholders, but also to communities and our wider society.

In a fast changing, global economy the MSc will equip you to assess the wider interconnections between organisations and their local, national and international contexts. You will build up a solid understanding of key management practice and develop your critical incite.

Our MSc is specifically designed for anyone who may be looking to complement their non-business degree and have little or no prior business background. Or you may have completed to general degree level and are aiming to enhance your qualifications.
