Msc Business Management Course

Students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland, who pay tuition fees may be eligible for specific scholarships allowing them to receive additional funding. These are designed to provide assistance to help students support themselves during their time at Aberdeen. This course is concerned with managing and understanding organisational behaviour. Organisational behaviour is one of the most complex and perhaps least understood academic elements of modern general management but since it concerns the behaviour of people within organisations it is also one of the most central. This course designed to prepare students for what lies within organisations, thus avoiding the ‘reality shock’. The emphasis will be on real-life rather than theoretical examples although wherever appropriate theory will be grounded in practical examples.

During Stage 2, you’ll develop your knowledge further, studying modules such as Introduction to Innovation and Technology Management, Research Methods, and Operations Strategy and Management, Human Resource Management and the Future of Work.
