Master Marketing and Management
The MSc Management programme will equip graduates from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds with the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in management.
MSc Management has specialist pathways in International, Human Resources, Marketing and Financial Analysis. All students enrolled on the programme complete common core subjects in general management during Semester one, with modules in Semester two which allow you to specialise in your chosen pathway.
Experience or qualifications in management are neither expected nor required. If you have experience as a manager, you may wish to consider our MBA programme. If you are uncertain about the pathway on which to enrol, please contact our Admissions team who will be able to give you advice.
Candidates will normally hold a first or second class honours degree or equivalent.
No work experience is required for admission onto the course.
Applicants whose native language is not English must provide evidence of their English language capabilities at a level approved by The University of Northampton (TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge Proficiency Certificate or equivalent).
This programme is specifically designed to provide pre-experience career preparation and post-experience career progression opportunities to those from any disciplinary background at first degree level with the aspiration to enter or progress more rapidly in their business or management careers.
The programme will build on your existing capabilities from your first discipline and develop your conceptual and theoretical understanding of business and management issues, problems and opportunities.
All students will study the following general management Core Modules in Semester one;
•Marketing: Principles and Management
•Managing Finance and Information
•Dissertation and Research Methods
MSc Management has four pathways: International, Human Resources, Marketing and Financial Analysis. The modules you will study in Semester two vary depending on your chosen specialist pathway;
•Developing Cross Cultural Capability
•Managing Operations in the Supply Chain Context
•Human Resource Management in Context
•International Marketing Strategy
•Global Financial Strategy
MSc Management aims to develop the managers of the future by providing a level of education to those seeking a generalist, broadly based management qualification. This programme is particularly relevant to those without a business background (either academic or employment) who have not previously committed to a specific/specialist career path. The specialist pathways are designed to provide more focussed routes for those who have more clearly defined career aspirations while still seeking to develop knowledge and skills in a broad range of business and management disciplines.
