The course provides the essential skills and knowledge necessary to take on management responsibility in today's demanding and rapidly changing business world. The programme is designed for graduates in non-business subjects, without previous managerial experience, or those with managerial experience who wish to deepen their understanding of the management process. The programme comprises an intensive series of stimulating teaching blocks that are based on formal lectures, group discussions, case studies, role-plays, simulation exercises and project work. A key aim of the programme is to develop your ability to think logically, laterally, practically and independently so that you can operate effectively in a wide range of business roles within organisations. The programme will equip you with a broad and up-to-date foundation of real-life knowledge about business as well as the necessary skills to put this knowledge into practice.

Additionally, the MSc Business Management provides you with an opportunity to go on (with some additional study) to obtain an MBA.
