Critical Management Research

Both modern management and management research require professionals with in-depth knowledge of their subject area combined with high level research skills that enable them to undertake complex projects. This Masters by Research (MRes) programme is a highly flexible taught postgraduate award, designed to provide intensive research training, as well as the opportunity to work on a dissertation project under the supervision of experts in your selected area of study. The programme is particularly suitable if you are aiming to pursue study at PhD level or aspire to a career with a significant focus on management research and organisational development.

Entry requirements

To join this programme you should have a first or upper second class honours degree in a management or social sciences related discipline. In exceptional circumstances, students with a lower second class honours degree with demonstrable knowledge of their subject matter may be admitted at the department's discretion. Overseas applicants will be considered on an individual basis and will be expected to demonstrate IELTS 7.0 or equivalent.

Each applicant will be expected to write a short research proposal outlining the intended focus of their MRes studies. A formal registration interview/viva will be held for each candidate with the proposed research supervisor and other qualified academic members of staff. The interview may take place face-to-face or via video conference as required and provides an opportunity to discuss the proposal and establish suitability for the programme.
