Course summary

The intensive advanced study introduces students of this interdisciplinary programme to core concepts, techniques and debates in management. You take a total of 11 core courses and electives. The programme is aimed at students who have just finished their degree (in any discipline except business or management-related majors), who have achieved the equivalent of a first-class, and who have less than one year of professional experience at the start of the programme. Educational aims:

  • to give students with a strong performance in other disciplines at the first-degree level an understanding of the academic discipline of management; and
  • to give students the opportunity to acquire and develop skills and expertise relevant to high-level management practice.
This is achieved by:
  • providing students with the guidance necessary to acquire a deep understanding of the theory and practice of management;
  • analysing, in lectures, discussions and written work, the key techniques, conceptual issues and debates in the academic management literatures and in the - practice of management;
  • supporting students in the development of an understanding and a critical perspective of management;
  • providing teaching in a range of technical/specialist subjects central to the study of the different branches of management; and
  • examining students formally on their knowledge of the theory and practice of management.

Assessment method

Each course carries the same weighting towards the final mark. A wide range of assessment strategies are used, including examination, assignments, case studies, presentations and coursework. All core courses (except the Management Consulting Project) are assessed primarily by an individual University examination, which may be complemented with other types of assessments among those mentioned above.
