The MSc Management programme equips students with a comprehensive understanding of key management principles and essential leadership skills, such as decision-making, problem-solving, strategic thinking, and effective communication. These skills are highly transferable and can be applied across various industries and organisational settings.

The programme consists of compulsory modules which cover management fundamentals and optional (elective) modules which allow students to tailor their studies to align with their specific career goals and interests. While the compulsory modules provide a solid foundation in general management, the elective modules enable students to delve deeper into specific areas of management that resonate with them. They provide students with the flexibility to explore diverse subjects within the broader field of management. This diversity contributes to the development of a well-rounded skill set, which is increasingly valuable in today’s dynamic business environment. All modules bear 15 credits unless specified otherwise.

This course can be studied 1 year full-time, 16 months full-time with placement or 2 years full-time with placement, starting in September. Or this course can be studied 15 months full-time, 19 months full-time with placement or 27 months full-time with placement, starting in January.

To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.

  • Pearson: 59 (59 in all subscores)
  • BrunELT: 63% (min 58% in all areas)

Should you wish to take a pre-sessional English course to improve your English prior to starting your degree course, you must sit the test at an approved SELT provider for the same reason.
