Course Description

Course Aims The MA Management programme aims to equip Honours graduates from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds with the knowledge and implementation skills to pursue careers in management. The programme is specifically designed to meet a real and growing demand amongst well-qualified young people. Increasingly, employers are seeking graduates with skills and knowledge which are not found (or perceived by employers to be found) among many recent graduates. The programme aims to provide such skills and knowledge and thus to give graduates a competitive advantage in the graduate management and management trainee market in the UK and throughout the world. Special Course Features ? Seven distinct pathways available in general management and functionally specific areas of study ? International and cross-cultural student group ? Teaching staff highly experienced in management, research, consultancy and Masters level teaching ? Opportunities to network with the regional business community in Northamptonshire ? Opportunity to write applied Dissertations related to real ?live? business problems and issues Course Content The MA Management programme consists of a family of seven pathways (General, International, Information Systems, Human Resources, Financial Analysis, Marketing and Arts Management). A work-based learning route is also available. All pathways consist of two taught semesters followed by a third semester in which a Dissertation of 15-20,000 words is undertaken. Taught modules are offered in core subjects in the strategy, accounting and finance and human resources management fields. Specialist modules are also available in these fields plus information systems. The Dissertation should be management related and allows students to apply the knowledge, skills and competences developed in Semesters One and Two. Students choosing the work-based learning route follow a six month period of work placement after the end of Semester Two, after which a work-related Dissertation is undertaken. Typical Modules Include ? Accounting and Finance for Managers ? Corporate Social Responsibility ? Dissertation (academic or work-related) ? Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Organisations ? Managing Operations in the Supply Chain Context ? Marketing: Principles and Management ? Organisational Strategy ? People in Organisations ? Research Methods for Business ? Strategic Information Systems Career Opportunities The ?general? pathway aims to provide a rounded management education to those students seeking a generalist, broadlybased management qualification which prepares them for a wide range of careers. It will be particularly relevant to those applicants without a business background (either academic or employment) who are not committed to a specificspecialist career path. The ?specialist? pathways are designed to provide more focussed routes for students who have more clearly-defined career aspirations while still seeking to develop knowledge and skills in a broad range of management disciplines.
