The Management course at Anglia Ruskin University will help you progress your senior role quicker than you think. When it comes to management, there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and our multidisciplinary modules offer a depth and breadth of knowledge to ensure you graduate with the skills you need to become a brilliant, contemporary manager.


You understand that Management is a diverse and ever-evolving discipline. You need a holistic knowledge of all its elements, while learning how to think both independently and in consideration of others. And that’s why our course takes a multidisciplinary approach. With ARU, you’ll explore the economical, socio-cultural and technological influences on businesses and the way they run. You’ll understand the key drivers behind successful management, and subsequently – a successful company. You’ll uncover both the domestic and international approach, which will prepare you for a senior managerial role on a global scale.

The Management course at Anglia Ruskin University has been designed to equip you with the skills to not just step straight into a high-level management role, but to step into a role that’s right for you. With elective modules from the MBA course (and integrated learning with our MBA students), this course is the perfect option if you’re looking for a route into a management role.

You will translate learned theory into practice through the active learning technique, which will help you develop your critical thinking and problem solving. The team-based approach we practice will develop your interpersonal, communication and collaborative skills, because we know that being a successful manager depends highly on how well you work with other people.


Our course has a track record of producing postgraduate students who have been highly successful in a wide range of business, management and professional careers. While you’re studying here, you’ll have the opportunity to build networks and engage with practitioners and specialists from the fields of business and management.
