The programme is designed primarily for students who have not previously studied business at the undergraduate level but are interested in developing a career in management. However, the knowledge and skills developed on the programme are also of value to applicants with some previous business experience looking for further career development.
Students, individually and in groups, consider a range of management problems and issues from different perspectives, taught through a variety of methods specifically designed to stimulate and stretch students' intellect. They develop their capacity to apply the necessary skills to solve real-life problems in management.
Study equips students with the knowledge and skills to work effectively within organisations and the rapidly-changing global context in which they operate.
The programme emphasises the Principles of Responsible Management Education, aiming to develop in students an awareness of the need to generate sustainable value for their organisations and society at large. The modules encompass a range of key management subject areas including strategy, leadership and entrepreneurship. Students write a dissertation which enables them to develop expertise in an area of international business of their choice.
