Leadership and Management Development
Management development is a term used to cover a wide range of learning activity in organisations, driven by global competition and the increased pace of change in the environment. Essentially, its purpose is to enhance the capacity of organisations, and the people within them, to successfully execute tasks and achieve specific work outcomes through effective leadership.
This MSc is for experienced graduates in management, or related areas, who are looking to enhance their subject knowledge and develop advanced research skills. The programme is particularly suitable if you are aspiring to a career with a significant focus on management and/or organisational development.
The programme will help you to develop and enhance your skills in management, reflect on your own practice and gain an excellent understanding of how creating direction and vision through communication, motivation and inspiration can aid the growth, success and sustainability of an organisation.
To join this programme you should have a first or upper second class honours degree in a management or social sciences related discipline.
In exceptional circumstances, students with a lower second class honours degree with demonstrable knowledge of their subject matter may be admitted at the department’s discretion.
