Management requires organised professionals who take a passionate interest in leadership and professional development. Practical skills in business strategy, people management and organisational planning are key to succeeding as a manager in a modern organisation.

You will study a core spine of management and organisational issues throughout term one. In addition to this core management spine, during your second term you may choose to specialise in either the International or Marketing pathway so you’ll graduate with a perfectly tailored Masters degree in management.
