The MSc is designed to reflect the expectation that candidates joining the award will have some suitable technical education, knowledge and/or expertise.
A key educational aim will be to further develop this knowledge and expertise and augment it with broader, business based management knowledge and skills.
This reflects a broader professional practice based recognition that for those people who wish to progress a management career within a technical field or environment, ‘on the job’ managerial experience gained is insufficient to support their effectiveness and specific management education is required.
Why Study Engineering Management with us?
Project and People Management, Innovation, Supply Chain Management and Finance are the key knowledge aspects of this award and address broadly the requirements of the benchmarks in these key areas.
The award is also designed to have a strategic viewpoint and with that a market-facing perspective embedded across the modules delivered.
The practical nature of learning, teaching and assessment uses extensively case-based approaches, which consistently consider both the strategic and operational aspects of the operations of business within the international context, and hence highlight the link between strategy and operations and the delivery of strategy through operations.
In this respect then stakeholder perspectives are considered extensively and the realisation of strategies incorporates many aspects of key functional and operational concerns for businesses.
