Description

This one year MSc Management is for you if you haven't previously studied business and management but are keen to acquire the necessary skills to pursue a career in management, whether that be in the public, private and not for profit sectors or you hope to run your own business.

You will be challenged to think differently by this varied course which comprises core and elective modules, lectures, case studies, seminars and individual and group project work.

Taught by staff and visiting speakers who are leaders in their field, you will study the key disciplines of management which you will find thought-provoking and inspirational. The course will help shape your leadership and management skills by embracing innovation and change allowing you the opportunity to think as an entrepreneur and put into practice your newly acquired knowledge.

Career Progression

This is a new course, but based on the career development of NUBS graduates of similar courses, we anticipate that graduates will enter a variety of careers such as Accountancy, Consultancy, Business Development, Human Resources, IT, Logistics, Marketing, Investment Banking, Private Banking, Project Management, Research, Sales & Distribution, Tax Consultancy, and Underwriting.
