Program objectives

This program is applicable to all kinds of organizations - business & Nonbusiness to all levels of management. Every organization must make the best possible use through the use of management principles. Therefore, they are universal or all pervasive. Additionally, it emphasizes the development of critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities to address multiple challenges and ensure successful outcomes. By the end of the program, students are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of management sciences best practices and be prepared to tackle the different complexities in various industries and sectors.

In developing the program, the Department has recognized that students may want to improve their job opportunities, change career direction or seek a fresh intellectual stimulus. Many are also looking for an enhancement of general business management rather than specialist skills. Increasingly from the employer’s perspective, organizations are seeking future business leaders with improved ‘softer’ such as good interpersonal skills with employees.

It is also suitable for experienced professionals or fast-track managers who already have an MBA or related qualification and are seeking continued learning and progression in their field. CUIs’ MS program is the ultimate professional business qualification and provides an accelerated route to a doctorate, enabling you to make a contribution to knowledge and practice through research that contributes to new thinking.

Students will be supervised by leading CUI academics. In the first year you are supported by our research training program which forms the basis for the taught element of the program. As MS research is likely to be thematic rather than discipline based, candidates are supported by a panel of senior faculty members rather than a single supervisor, to ensure that most relevant support is provided.
