Why this course
The MSc Business & Management (MBM) draws together the best that Strathclyde Business School has to offer. By combining the School’s research expertise with its understanding of personal and professional development, the MBM provides a springboard for those looking to pursue careers in management, in business analysis, in consultancy, or even in starting a business.
It is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as a Pre-Experience Masters in Management. As a result, you can be sure the course will develop the business acumen you need to operate effectively across different industries and operating environments.
The mission of the MBM instils in you the personal qualities and critical thinking skills that will see you emerge as a self-directed learner, capable of dealing with the ambiguous and complex task of managing.
What you’ll study
The curriculum builds your understanding of organisations and the context in which they operate, and helps you explore where you might fit within them. Classes fall within four focal areas:
Understanding the business – through a sequence of classes you'll gain a managerial overview of the major functional areas of most organisations. You'll explore what they do and learn the language and techniques they employ.
Developing the business – building on your growing understanding of organisations, this group of classes explores how businesses are responding to their contexts and analyse how they might evolve in the future.
Professional development – in this area you will identify and develop a plan to enhance the key strengths and skills that will mark you out in your management career.
Building a careers focus – as you move towards the next stage of your career, the elective classes and the final project/dissertation provide a wide range of options that allow you to customise your learning towards your career direction or development needs.
A programme focussed on practice
The MBM provides a developmental process that builds your knowledge and confidence in understanding and undertaking hands-on analysis of management issues. Throughout the year you'll engage in:
learning about practice – from the outset, the course focuses on the application of knowledge through case studies, group-based analysis, and guest speakers
learning through practice – through working with real-life businesses you'll gain hands-on experience of the complexities involved in managing organisations
practice as learning – by examining how you get things done in practice, you'll build confidence in identifying what you need to do to take your skills to the next level
A programme focussed on careers
The MBM’s commitment to help you identify and enhance the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in your career begins on day one and extends beyond the end of the course. As a cohort member you'll:
