How to personalise your degree 

Our courses are modular and split into three semesters of 12 – 15 weeks. During the first semester, you will develop strong core knowledge in either Management, Marketing, Finance or Economics. In the second semester, you will have the opportunity to specialise within the subject of your choice. The third semester offers a choice of powerful, hands-on projects giving you valuable experience. Over the whole year, you will also take a personal and professional development module* to support your studies and employability. 

*If you are looking to study MSc Entrepreneurship or MSc Human Resource Management, the PPD module differs. Please see course page for further details.
