This postgraduate course enhances students' employability by developing a broad range of management knowledge and skills. Students will be strengthening their capacity for geographical and cultural mobility, and improving their ability to work as part of a multinational team. Practical experience is central to the course. Students will have opportunities to visit companies and meet senior managers; use specialised diagnostic and management development tools; develop consultancy skills during consultancy skills workshops and gain work experience through a paid employment-based project. Students will develop transferable skills such as leadership, consultancy and cross-cultural negotiation. At the end of the first term students will have the option to specialise in a specific subject area. Four specialist routes are available: Entrepreneurship, Public Services, Human Resources, and Innovation. Specialised pathways enable students to focus on their interests and career goals. If students choose to specialise, this will be reflected in their degree title, for example Management (Entrepreneurship) MSc.
