Reasons for choosing this course
The MSc Programme is based on the philosophy that management education should initially provide a thorough grounding in the disciplines related to the functional aspects of management and their interaction with the contextual forces which impact upon organisations.
This knowledge and understanding is then further developed to provide integrative strategic themes through the pathway specialismsâ€Ÿ and Management core modules. The impact of globalisation of business in all disciplines is a coherent theme throughout the course.
The course encourages students to develop the skills and competences of future managers. To do this, students should be capable of making management decisions at both a strategic and at a tactical level, emphasising the complexity and dynamics of business and management and taking cognisance of the integrative nature of the various factors which impinge upon management decisions.
The programme incorporates frameworks for reviewing, reflecting, analysing and critiquing existing individual and organisational practices. It also provides new knowledge and skills, enabling enhanced and more appropriate practices to be developed. The outcome of this process will be a critical appreciation, in order to make justified decisions; apply those decisions in a variety of contexts; communicating the decisions and make integrative links between disciplines and across organisations in a context of change.
