Management Practice

The MSc in Management Practice is a two year Master’s Degree programme aimed specifically at chief executives and senior managers.

It is designed exclusively for experienced senior managers who need to develop their understanding of the complex management issues facing them and their organisation but find it impossible, because of their senior status in the organisation, to go on either a full-time master’s programme or a part-time.
