In addition to our world-ranked MBA we offer the highly innovative MSc in Advanced Management Practice, as well as more traditional courses in General Management, Marketing, International Management, Accounting & Finance, Innovation and Technology Management, Sustainability and Human Resource Management ,all building on our specialist research at the leading edge of knowledge.
