Summary

Drawing upon our areas of research expertise, our MSc Management with Marketing provides a solid grounding in key aspects of business and management while allowing you to specialise through a range of option modules focusing on marketing.

The course examines the essentials of management theory and practice and the core principles and practice of business and organisations in a local and international context. You will gain a broad knowledge and expertise in the design and implementation of strategy at different levels of the corporate organisation and of other types of organisation such as public, not-for-profit and cooperative. Specialist modules will introduce you to major marketing concepts and techniques, planning and strategy, and topics such as brand management, consumer behaviour and public relations.

You will then use your critical analysis and independent judgement skills to write a dissertation setting out solutions to complex managerial problems in all types of organisation.

This Master's course differs from the typical MBA in that it covers fewer subjects but in more depth. You will learn more than just the current management fashions and buzzwords: you will also learn about the evidence upon which management theories are based.
