Why is this subject for you?
Management is about working with and through others in an efficient and effective manner to achieve organisational goals.
The MSc in Management is aimed at students from a non-business or management background who want to either enhance their first degree or transition towards a successful management career. This programme educates students on the many facets of management while also developing important management skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and communication.
Teaching methods include lectures, workshops, tutorials, Harvard Business School case studies, industry speakers, organisation visits and computer simulations. Lectures are also often interspersed with discussion, group exercises and case studies which allow you to engage with theories and concepts and reflect on their application in practice. You will also have opportunities to make presentations and to work on a variety of group tasks, both assessed and non-assessed, improving your communicating and leadership skills.
The programme offers a unique opportunity to engage with local organizations, through the module, Winning Markets, which is taken in semester one. This mini-consultancy project runs over the course of the module and students, working in groups, are afforded the chance to present their actionable recommendations based on primary research, to the client company, at the module end. These are real-life problems and not simulated for the purpose of assessment. Not for Profit and charitable organizations have greatly benefitted from the programme engagement.
The course attracts students from a range of academic backgrounds from languages to law, creating a stimulating social and learning environment. International students bring an exciting and diverse perspective to the overall programme; especially within group work.
Students must complete 60 CATS per semester. The award of MSc is based on the accumulation of 180 CATS.
Modules are subject to change.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
Normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent qualification acceptable to the University in any discipline (except Business or Management).
We welcome applications from a diverse range of backgraounds so may also consider previous work experience alongside lower academic qualifications. Prior experiential learning in business, management or marketing, in lieu of academic qualifications will be considered on an individual basis under the University's RPL Policy www.go.qub.ac.uk/RPLPolicy. A formal interview, the submission of written work, exam or GMAT test may form a part of this proceedure.
