About

The MSc Business and Management, University Campus Suffolk is designed for new or recent graduates and those with management experience. This programme goes beyond just providing students with a thorough grounding in vital business and management practices and the contexts in which they operate. The course philosophy focuses upon the role of modern business and management and the varied and sometimes complex mixture of knowledge and skills that drive the revenue streams of those modern entities. Modern businesses have become more diverse. The balance of power has shifted significantly in favour of the customer, who now has more control of the relationship than ever before, and technology has brought in new media channels and cultural norms. The role of business and management has altered, so too has the scope and role of management which is changing in response.

This course delivers the core essentials for a career in business and management by allowing students to rehearse the necessary skills and techniques required in the profession, and doing so at the intellectual and deep level of a Masters programme. Students taking this course will be able to significantly enhance their career and promotion prospects.

Students will complete 180 credits including the core module Global Enterprise Management plus three compulsory modules in Global Economic Trends, Research Methods and Operations and Human Resource Management. For the remaining modules students have a choice of topics giving them the opportunity to build on their business interests. Students will also complete a dissertation on a topic of their choice for the detailed exploration of technology, business and management issues.
