Equips students with the knowledge and skills needed for effective management, adding value through an applied understanding of business.
Study Management at Ulster University in the United Kingdom.
The MSc Management course offers an advanced qualification combined with practical managerial experience, which will be extremely useful for graduates wishing to pursue managerial and entrepreneurial careers in industry and commerce.
The course builds on graduates existing knowledge and skills by equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage and lead within a range of industries, and to be able to add significant value through an integrated and critical understanding of business and management.
The course has a strong practical focus on skills development. We believe that students who can demonstrate the ability to add value within a live organisational context will always be a more attractive employment proposition than students who cannot. We provide ample opportunity for students to develop and demonstrate managerial level knowledge and skills within the course itself. For example, students will engage in live in-company projects with organisations throughout and within semester 1, they will be provided with the opportunity to create, and actively trade with, their own business start-up (and keep any profits!).
A 12 week Internship and Management Project in semester 3 of year 2 enables students to apply knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course to an organisational issue or problem. For those who are already in employment the project can be carried out within their organisation, adding value to their existing role.
Lectures follow the standard semester pattern, usually running over a 2 year period of part-time study. Some modules in semester 3 may also be delivered in a block format (consecutive days rather than consecutive weeks).
In addition to lectures, seminars, directed reading and IT based resources, knowledge and understanding of the subject are acquired and further developed through case studies, extra-curricular project activity and student work/internship and employability experiences. Visiting speakers and practitioners master classes will be used to further develop a sound theoretical understanding of contemporary issues within business and management.
