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.

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.
