The Master of Management is designed for students wanting to advance their scholarly research and master their strategic management capabilities. On completion you will be prepared to take on a leadership position in a relevant management context.

You explore the different aspects that make up a leadership role, including communications, finance, strategic planning, human resources, governance and marketing – taught by a team of highly respected and internationally qualified tutors.

By mixing advanced theoretical study with highly applied, work-based learning, you engage in rigorous intellectual analysis and learn to apply new skills and techniques to existing or emerging issues in the workplace.

Your advanced level of work-integrated practice and knowledge will contribute to high-level management and performance improvement, particularly (but not exclusively) in the areas of business, health, hospitality, or information technology.

TOPICS YOU'LL COVER: Management Practice - Critical Analysis and Review, Strategic Human Resource Management, Finance for Managers, Operations Management, Change Management, Advanced Applied Research Proposal, and Advanced Applied Research Project (45 credits)
