Kick-start your management career at a leading business school
Our one-year MSc Management course will transform you from an ambitious graduate into a successful manager. Inspired by our highly ranked MBA programmes, the MSc Management is an intensive and immersive course, ideal if you have aspirations for senior leadership roles in management. You will learn to apply the skills you acquire in a range of environments including marketing, purchasing, strategic customer management, business consultancy and organisational development.
We believe that studying the theory is only one element that enables you to become a global leader. We focus on developing you as an individual, enhancing your soft-skills and the impact you can have early in your career, whilst furnishing you with a broad conceptual knowledge of management supporting you as your career progresses. This course is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
You will refine and build upon your communication, teamworking, and presentation skills through individual and group work, and develop your personal and professional skills in decision-making, problem-solving, analysis, and critical reflection. You will have the opportunity to get a real sense of the business world with site visits, external speakers, and talks from our Professors of Practice, senior business and industry practitioners. You will also have a developed awareness of international business culture through optional international modules.
All students on the course will complete the Business Immersion and Critical Thinking module offering intensive learning opportunities.
You will study six compulsory modules to give you a broad overview of key business areas, and three open optional modules to suit your own aspirations. You will be able to choose an Elective Pathway, giving you a deep and specialist insight into a particular sector, organisation type or role. Elective Pathways may include Global, Digital Management and Small/Medium Enterprise and Innovators.
Our range of optional modules offers a variety of stimulating choices, and you can also make an application to attend one of our optional international study weeks. Please note that module availability may vary and that your first choice may not be guaranteed.
You will have group and individual assessments, plus exams, and an individual dissertation.
You will complete an individual dissertation. This will be a piece of desk-based research on a company of your choice and will test your understanding of management theory as well as your ability to select and apply it.
Students on this course will have the opportunity to apply for a place on one of our study weeks. Currently, we offer study weeks at Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management and the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business. Places on these study weeks are optional and limited, and students will be able to partake in an application and selection process to take part once they have begun on the course. Please note that the flights, accommodation, teaching and company visits for these trips will be funded by Warwick Business School for successful students.
You must have, or be expecting, an upper second class honours at Undergraduate level, which does not include previous study of business or management. Our students come from diverse backgrounds including arts, social sciences, humanities, engineering and mathematics.
If you have studied disciplines related to management you may still be eligible, but with a restricted range of electives, eg: if you have a BSc in Economics, an offer might be conditional on you not taking an economics elective.
GMAT & GRE
We do not require a GMAT or GRE score but a well-balanced score (700+) may strengthen your application.
English not your first language?
If English is not your first language, you must meet a minimum overall standard in a recognised test of English, examples are shown below. You must show a good balance across all sections of the test and it must have been taken within two years of starting the course. We will require your certificates as evidence.
Educated in the English language?
If you are a non-native speaker of English but have been educated entirely in English for your degree, and completed this within the last two years, this may satisfy the University of your language skills. For further information, please see the University’s page for English language requirements.
We do not offer a pre-sessional English class as an alternative to achieving these scores. Any pre-sessional course should be viewed as a way of settling into living and studying in the UK and not as a way of boosting your score.
