Master's programmes

We offer a portfolio of 12 generalist and specialist Master's (MSc) programmes covering a range of cutting-edge areas in today's global business world. 

We provide academically rigorous training and critical thinking skills for our students to thrive in the fast-changing world of business over a lifelong career, and our graduates are in high demand by employers.

As an academic department in a leading university, rather than a Business School, our programmes break the mould of traditional business teaching. Instead of  simply teaching students to apply current business tools and frameworks (as with a traditional programme such as an MBA) we provide a more analytically rigorous approach led by cutting-edge research, to develop our students' talent as future innovators, thought leaders and change agents in society.
