Many businesses have been driven to reinvent themselves to meet global challenges as they change their business model for commercial advantage. This transition requires strong leadership that blends multidisciplinary expertise.
This MSc course is suitable for you if you want to work as a leader or manager in service based industries. You will learn the systems and techniques used to manage service industries and creation of value in the business across suppliers within the industry and within industry processes.
Through a combination of both practice and academic rigour you will develop the skills and knowledge to be able to:

You are expected to devote an appropriate portion of your time and intellectual effort to the project during the course i.e. approximately 900 hours or 6 months study.
The taught component of the course is a mixture of traditional lectured material, syndicate/group work, large scale delivery, practical work, online learning and forum activities. Module leaders are experts in their fields and are supported by external speakers working in organisations at the forefront of their fields.

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.
