About the course
The MSc in Management and Entrepreneurial eBusiness provides future managers with a grounding in the operation of key functional areas of business and the way that these are integrated in globally orientated organisations. This route goes beyond traditional Information system or eBusiness offerings and focuses on preparing students to be hybrid managers. At the end of the year participants will be able to demonstrate their ability to apply, synthesise and critically review contemporary theories and approaches to e-business development and implementation management.
It is designed for those from non-IS or eBusiness backgrounds who wish to enter this profession, as well as those who may already possess some computing knowledge, but who wish to gain a qualification reflecting contemporary management perspectives.
The framework for all of our full-time MSc in Management courses, enables us to keep up to date with a range of dynamic modules relevant to the aspirations and needs of a new generation of global leaders. Our curriculum is reviewed and developed through consultation with our students, employers and alumni. Central to our course design is engagement with external businesses and organisations, leading to direct experience of consultancy work.
As a student on MSc Management and Entrepreneurial eBusiness you will be entitled to a free iPad to enhance your learning experience. Students will be provided with an iPad when they are fully enrolled on the course which will enable them to access their on-line learning materials.

Although this course does not currently offer a placement, the Applied Consultancy Project provides the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge gained from the previous modules within a real life UK business setting. The Consultancy Project enables you to develop your consultancy skills and gain a detailed understanding of the management and operation of a modern business.
The Consultancy Project
Designed to integrate and operationalise theory, the Consultancy Project provides teams of course members with the opportunity to put theory into practice in a real life UK business setting. The module aims to develop the capacity to work as part of a management team through active participation in a live consultancy project, and to enhance the ability to communicate clearly; argue rationally; and apply strategic concepts to produce real business solutions - given time constraints and conditions of uncertainty.
All of our courses are vocationally-oriented, providing the skills and experience that are relevant to and valued by employers. The real-world consultancy project, carried out in collaboration with local organisations, continues to be a key factor in the success of our courses and provides you with work-based experience that is of genuine value to your future career.
- You will need an undergraduate degree equivalent to a UK undergraduate honours degree (2.2 or above).
