The MSc Management programme complements the skills gained from a first degree for students of engineering, the sciences and humanities, with a comprehensive focus and understanding of key areas of business education. One of the outstanding benefits of our MSc Management is a full third semester of teaching, offering increased contact hours with our highly experienced academic staff. The programme prepares students for a wide range of professional and management careers across business functions and sectors.
On completion of this course students will be able to:
* Be sensitive to international business practices and contribute to the leadership, strategy and management of change
* Assess critically the relationship between organisations, their external context, and their management processes
* Review critically and apply creatively the body of knowledge relating to organisations, their external context, and their management processes
* Make informed judgements about the appropriate application of theory to managerial practice in relation to organisations, their external context and their management processes
* Evaluate and recommend options for the improvement of managerial practice in relation to organisations, their external context, and their management processes
* Gain the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to become a more effective manager by learning to integrate and align organisational processes, systems, and people to meet today's critical challenges and goals.
Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.

Students for whom English is a foreign language
We welcome applications from students whose first language is not English or those whose degree was not taught in English. To ensure such students benefit fully from postgraduate study, we require evidence of proficiency in English. We also will require a certain standard to be achieved on the written element of the test. Our usual entry requirements are as follows:
* IELTS: 6.5 overall (minimum 6.0 in all components)
* TOEFL: Internet-based score of 92 overall (minimum 21 in the listening and writing components; 22 in the reading component; and 23 in the speaking component)
* PTE: 62 overall (minimum 55 in all components)
In certain circumstances we may require you to complete a Pre-Sessional English for Academic Purposes course prior to beginning your programme. This course may be taken at our INTO Language Learning Centre.
|TOEFL iBT® test:||92|
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) 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.
Scholarships may be offered to UK/EU and International students. Scholarships are normally awarded to students on the basis of academic merit and are usually for the duration of the period of study.
Funding for postgraduate study is also available both from the university and from a number of external schemes.
