Master of Science in Management

Programme Purpose

The programme seeks to develop an understanding of core business and management disciplines, and to show how they interrelate to identify and resolve issues in a practical business environment. The programme emphasises the development of business and management skills in solving problems via analysis, decision-making, effective communication and leadership, which can be applied in the modern organization. The programme has been developed to satisfy the demand for courses that combine a strong theoretical foundation with a firm focus on practical application. Learners will be exposed to the most current schools of thought in disciplines such as international business, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship and strategic management. The programme also provides a series of elective modules for students to explore other areas of interest or to emphasise their development in a specific area of their choice. Development of effective managerial skills, which include analytical problem solving, decision-making, effective communication and leadership, is encouraged throughout the course. Such skills provide strong tools which can be applied in day-to-day management situations and serve graduates to aim at higher management positions within the organisation.
