Management Science

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Management science is a field that contributes solutions to management problems in many industries. It may require workers to identify and understand strategies of a certain company, and taking those qualities and incorporating them into a larger plan of action meant to solve managerial issues.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Top Masters in Management Science in the United Kingdom. The Master’s Program in Management & Engineering centers on the handling of interactions between management and technology, as well as on imparting a fundamental and comprehensive understanding of management of modern design. CONTENT AND RATIONALE Strategic design options and operational optimization tasks almost always include interconnections overarching technology, business and management. The in-depth understanding of engineering is seen in varying degrees as a key success factor for the management of industrial enterprises. The program therefore combines the learning of management skills with training in the application of academic methods in the field of engineering sciences. STRUCTURE The first semester includes three modules on the fundamental principles, methods and processes of engineering and simulation. In addition, students will select one from two focuses on Automation Technology (AT) or Production Technology (PT) and complete the Module on Photonic Systems or Production Management. In the second semester, students complete, depending on the focus, Modules on actuators and control technology as well as sensors and intelligent systems (AT) or production engineering and production logistics (PT). In a challenging educational research project, students deal in a team with practical issues, which can be clarified by interdisciplinary or subject-based reflection. In addition, a selection module for individual subject focus is available. In the third semester, students take modules corresponding to the focal points of their studies. Modules on Components of Control Systems (AT) or Strategic Production Networks (PT) as well as three elective modules are available for selection. The third semester, therefore, is particularly well suited for a period of study abroad. In addition to the modules of their own major, all first-to-third-semester students take two overarching modules. In Management Studies, which include majors overarching different disciplines, students take three modules to expand their expertise the field of management knowledge. Complementary studies, also taught in three modules, draw their inspiration from a broadly academic and reflection-based science. Thanks to the special nature of these courses, students learn ways of thinking and of working across disciplinary boundaries, which will impart them with the ability to develop different solutions for problems encountered in theory and practice. The concluding semester is for writing the Master’s Thesis, as well as attendance at the Master’s Forum. The Master’s Thesis is composed preferably in cooperation with an industrial enterprise (also abroad, should this be requested) and is treats a practice relevant subject by applying academic methods.

Top Masters in Management Science in the United Kingdom. Master in International Public Management General objectives Market dynamics, economic globalization, financing development, environment, corruption, financial crime, regional Integration, cultural diversity and trade, education… These key global policy Issues of the day - to name a few - are protean and at the intersection of local, national, international and global interests. This inherent complexity is amplified by the ever growing number of actors involved in decision-making process. The Master in International Public Management is intended for students who are interested in careers in international public service that rely on advisory and advocacy skills in order to facilitate and coordinate the formulation of global policy. It aims more generally at training policy makers with the capacity to operate in a variety of cultural contexts in addressing issues of international range. The program provides students with a variety of tools for policy analysis essential to becoming key players in the decision-making process at the international and global level. Although it is possible to undertake the Management public international / International Public Management Master program without it, important prior work experience in the field or a specialised undergraduate course of study (law, business, engineering …) is an asset for placement for graduates of the programme. Security, migration, health and so many other fields of our globalized world need first-class and highly trained managers with an intrinsic spirit of leadership. The PSIA program in International Public Management strives to prepare global public managers to fulfil that role across continents. Ghassan Salamé, Dean of PSIA International Public Management Graduate Class of '13 Anjuli Pandit reflects on her time at PSIA, and how it prepared her for great professional challenges. Scientific Advisor Richard Balme is professor of political science at Sciences Po, Paris School of International Affairs, and research fellow at the Centre d’Etudes Europeennes (CEE). He also teaches at the School of Public Policy and Management of Tsinghua University, Beijing. He teaches and researches comparative public policy and international relations. Among his recent publications are Collective Action and European Democracy. Power and Protest in the EU (With D. Chabanet). Rowman and Littlefield 2008.Europe-Asia Relations: Building Multilateralisms (With B. Bridges). Palgrave 2008..“Central-Local Relations and Innovation in Environmental Policy-Making: Comparative Perspectives”, a special issue of Environmental Policy and Governance, 2014 (With Qi Ye, Eds). Smart Grids Applications and Developments. London, Springer Verlag, 2014 (With Li V., Hills P., Mah D., Eds). Main orientations and specific features Depending on their career aspirations and in relation to the type of institution in which they aspire to work – local and national administrations, notably the diplomatic corps, intergovernmental and governmental organisations or transnational firms – students have the possibility to chart a personalised course of study in the IPM programme. Courses are provided in three main areas: International Organizations and Global Governance; Public Policy: Theory and Analysis; and Policy Management and Leadership. Students may choose to concentrate on one global issue or else study several contemporary global issues in which State sovereignty and multilateralism are both seen as struggling to find an appropriate policy response. In order to contextualise the interplay of actors students also have the choice to focus on the study of established and emerging non-State players or on the dynamics of interactions at the international and global levels through the study of leadership, the sociology of international relations or intercultural management. Europe as a key regional player is not forgotten. Lastly, students may acquire and develop operational, concrete skills in a number of domains: analysis and evaluation of public policy, information systems, legal writing, crisis communication and advocacy, and diplomatic practices. Careers opportunities Management public international / International Public Management students may typically consider careers in local, national or international administrations, in intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations or in transnational firms, working in domains such as international cooperation, development or new public-private sector partnerships.

Structure and content Stirling’s MRes in Business and Management Research Methods follows two taught semesters, which run from mid-September to late December, and from January until the end of May. Three modules are taken in each semester. After the Spring semester students undertake a dissertation over the summer months (see below). Students on the MRes in Business and Management Research Methods will start the semester at Stirling Management School with an intensive period of 'learning to learn' and teambuilding activities. This induction period (15th to 26th September) is introduced to enable students to develop new learning styles and understand the expectations that will be placed on them through an engaged and exploratory approach. Students will learn about themselves and their own interactional and learning styles. Students also learn about others and gain an appreciation of a diverse range of approaches to learning, along with cultural and individual differences. They will also discover more about the exciting year ahead, and what is expected of them. This induction period provides a foundation of activities to help students to fully integrate with the course and their fellow students so that they have the opportunity to gain the maximum out of the course and their interactions with others. The overall aim is for students to be fully engaged so that they are equipped to embark on the formal teaching course invigorated and committed to the journey ahead with newly developed intellectual, interactional and presentational skills. The taught content of the course furnishes students with expertise and skills across the whole range of techniques that are relevant for research in the areas of Business, Management and Organisations. Students learn the philosophical bases of research and how research questions may be developed and answered. The course then provides in depth coverage of quantitative, qualitative and experimental research methods, their uses and limitations and how they may be practically applied within research projects. The specific modules taken are: Autumn Semester Fundamentals and Philosophy of Management Research. Qualitative Methods for Management Research 1. Understanding and Using Statistics. Spring Semester Qualitative Methods for Management Research 2. Experiments for Decision making in Business and Policy. Survey Measurement and Analysis. Dissertation MRes students write a dissertation of up to 15,000 words on a topic approved in advance by the Course Director. The dissertation is the student’s chance to develop their own research questions and apply the methods they have learnt to their own research project. Students each have an expert supervisor for their dissertation who provides guidance and support throughout the process. The dissertation must be submitted within three months of completion of the taught course. The examiners may allow a dissertation which is considered unsatisfactory to be revised and submitted for re-assessment within a specified time period. Delivery and assessment Delivery takes the form of structured lectures, seminars and practicals that are supplemented by opportunities for independent learning and exploration. Assessment Assessment is by coursework, including written assignments and presentations, as well as the dissertation. Some modules also have an examination element (see detailed module descriptors). For the award of the Certificate - a student must complete at least 60 credits (3 modules), which must include the specified Certificate modules. For the award of the Diploma - a student must complete at least 120 SCQF credits (6 modules). For the award of the MRes - a student must successfully complete the Diploma programme and achieve a passing grade in the dissertation (at least 180 SCQF credits in total). Merit and Distinction- at the discretion of the Examination Board, exceptional candidates may be awarded the MRes or Diploma with Merit or Distinction if they perform at a suitable level across their modules and dissertation. Strengths The MRes in Business and Management Research Methods provides both a stand-alone Master of Research in Business and Management Research Methods and a programme of training for PhD researchers. It is part of a suite of very high prestige courses approved by the Economic and Social Research Council (the chief government sponsored agency that funds British-led economic and social research) for use in general research training of ESRC sponsored students undertaking PhD research. The course can be seen as equipping students for academic careers but it can also provide or enhance managers’ critical skills in both generating and evaluating the validity, reliability and limitations of evidence for decision making and implementation. Career opportunities The course is aimed at those who wish to embark on an academic or commercial career in business, management and related research. The course is also invaluable for those working in public policy areas who need to conduct, analyse and commission research. It also provides essential research training for those planning to study for a PhD. Employability Our students develop essential transferable skills, relevant to research. Skills include: critical thinking; analysis and interpretation of varied and complex data; making and supporting evidence based arguments; planning and implementing projects; self management; presentation skills; and self reflection.
