It offers an excellent foundation for your career or for further study. We want to ensure that our courses give you the best possible chance of achieving your career ambitions, which is why we have built useful projects and strategies into the programme. As well as gaining a formal qualification, this course allows you to develop sought-after transferable skills and build a skills portfolio that you can show to future employers.
We are focused on the student learning experience and want to ensure that our graduates are career ready, with the knowledge, skills and attributes that employers demand. Our teaching staff have extensive practical experience, and you will be taught in small group sizes that encourage a good learning relationship with lecturers.
Choose to study the optional Placement Year for the opportunity to gain significant practical skills and elevate your career. Employers are looking for graduates with a business-ready mind set; this entails an understanding of business ethics and values, self-awareness, mental flexibility and openness, resilience, and a commitment to lifelong learning.
Having completed the first year of studies, the second year will be spent on placement in employment. Whilst you will be responsible for finding your own placement, you will be fully supported by a Placement Tutor and our dedicated Business Employability Team. Throughout the year, you will receive monthly coaching from a Placement Tutor to help accelerate skills development and self-awareness within a work environment, complementing the knowledge gained from our academic courses, for a minimum of 30 weeks. You will be given the opportunity to transfer to the placement version of your MSc within a period during your first year of studies.
Our placement year courses are open to everyone including international students, who can contact our International office for specific advice and guidance.
Should you be unable to complete the full programme, you may still be awarded a Diploma or Certificate depending on terms completed.
All Master’s programmes are integrated with a Professional Development Module, specifically designed to help boost your professional leadership skills and expertise. We will work with you on a Personal Development Plan (PDP) tailored to your career goals, in addition to employment workshops and events.
You will receive individual coaching from a professional coach to help improve your skills within leadership, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, innovation, cultural communication, and growth mindset. We are the only business school in the UK to offer professional development coaching for all our postgraduate students and this is a testament to our dedication to helping you achieve your ambitions.
