Executive Global MSc Management

About the MSc programme

The Executive Global Master’s in Management is an exciting option for working professionals who wish to advance their careers by seeking a comprehensive management degree from a leading management school, while still working.  The programme is offered in a modular format at the School and also includes overseas modules in international cities which will be chosen to highlight key aspects of global management.

The programme is concerned with interdisciplinary study of both in-depth management theory and real-word application of management practice.  Rather than learning about different disciplines in isolation as is common in most business schools, our students gain a unique and cutting-edge interdisciplinary understanding across all areas of management. Through critical thinking, case studies and practical assignments, our bespoke modular courses are designed to teach students how to think critically about business and society, linking together theory and practice across all disciplines to give a holistic understanding of world-leading management practice.
