Well, apart from being part of an internationally recognised Business School:
- you'll be part of an academic Department that's recognised as one of the world's leading Management Science departments.
- you'll be combining rigorous academic learning with useful, practical skills
- we're all actively involved in practical research and in consultancy so that our teaching relates very much to the real world
- we have strong links with industry, the public sector and government both in the UK and internationally
... and our students tell us it's a fun, friendly department to be part of!
MS classes are a mixture of lectures, tutorials and seminars. Working with other students in small groups is common across all MS classes allowing students to develop their leadership and team-working skills. Also, student presentations, both formal and informal, are common. IT skills are developed as a matter of course. Assessment is a combination of examinations and coursework (both individual and group based).
Above all, we focus on the practical, real-world application of MS.
