At Dundee our Master’s courses prepare you for a successful career, wherever in the world and in whatever sector you plan to work. Employers expect their postgraduate recruits to have advanced technical and communication skills, to be confident team-workers, independent researchers, good project-managers and to be at the leading edge of their specialism. We have designed our degrees courses to respond to these demands. This qualification gives you the management and leadership skills to increase your employability. The course prepares you to work in small firms, in large multinational firms with global office networks, in the public sector or in international and charitable organisations. It also prepares you for launching and running your own business, or simply becoming entrepreneurial whether it is for a multinational or an SME. Roles generally include meeting a wide cross-section of people, the provision of advice, management and technical services.

· Requirements

A good first degree (at least lower second class Honours degree or equivalent) in any subject which has enabled the applicant to develop analytical, communication, problem-solving and team-working skills. If you are concerned that your qualifications do not meet our normal expectation you may apply, but you should include a short personal statement concerning your general interest in your own education, work experience and prior relevant learning.

Course programme

Course content

The programme begins with a two week foundation module to bring all students up to a common minimum standard in management and business statistics. The foundation module also introduces you to the university’s learning resources (e.g. the library and study skills support) and encourages you to work in ‘teams’ exchanging your intellectual assets for mutual benefit.

You’ll then study five compulsory modules covering operation and change management, strategic management and organizational analysis, performance measurement and reporting, marketing management strategy, and managing people and organisations. A summer project in your specialist area completes the core modules.

You’ll also take three modules in your specialist pathway (which you will choose after the two-week Foundation module).

Modules of study

Pathways include:
  • Management
  • Management and Finance
  • Management and International Human Resource Management
  • Management and Marketing
  • Management, Strategy and Leadership
  • Management and Entrepreneurship

These specialisms allow you to strengthen your knowledge in a particular area - in addition to the core management modules, you can focus your optional modules on the area in which you wish to specialise.
