Skills and Training
Our flexible management courses share a common first year before allowing you to focus on your chosen specialism to enhance your career prospects.
BSc (Hons) Management is a broad-based course which allows you to study the full range of management subjects. However, you can also choose to specialise in accounting and finance, human resources, innovation, sustainability and entrepreneurship, international business economics, international studies or marketing. With over 90 course units to choose from, you really can shape your own degree.
Your chosen specialism will be reflected in your degree title e.g. BSc (Hons) Management (Marketing) - however, if you do not wish to specialise, you will graduate in BSc (Hons) Management. Since the Management and Management (Specialism) degrees are identical in the first year, transfer between them is straightforward, so you should apply for only one of them.
All the Management courses offer the possibility of an international orientation in the second and final years, with study of firms and organisations across the world.Aims
This course aims to promote critical awareness of the merits and complexities of management and to instill an appreciation of the association between theory and practice. It aims to introduce you to important new developments in the field of management and to enable you to develop appropriate practical and transferable skills.Special features
- Wide choice of specialisms: accounting and finance; human resources; innovation, sustainability and entrepreneurship; international business economics; international studies; and marketing.
- Your chosen specialism will be reflected in your degree title e.g. BSc (Hons) Management (Marketing)
- Don't want to specialise? Graduate with BSc (Hons) Management
- Flexible courses with a common first year

You will normally study four or five course units per semester. Each week there are usually two hours of lectures for each course unit and a one hour workshop in alternate weeks, although this varies slightly. You are expected to double this in private study. Group work and group or individual presentations will form a regular part of your assignments.Coursework and assessment
Essays, multiple choice tests, project reports and presentations, in-class tests and weekly assignments constitute the coursework component of assessment, although the nature and proportion of coursework varies across course units. The remainder of assessment is by unseen examination. Depending on the degree course, in your final year you can choose to do a research-based dissertation or project. We aim to strike a balance between examinations and assessed coursework as well as providing opportunities for feedback on progress through non-assessed work.Course content for year 1
You will study a set of core course units to provide a broad introduction to a range of topics across our management portfolio; this will ensure that you benefit from more choice in later years.
Following feedback from both current students and employers, we have recently enhanced our first year programme structure. Due to popular demand, we have introduced a first-year marketing course unit to allow new first-year students to benefit from an early insight into this area. We have also created a new course unit for semester two which uses case studies to give you a more practical understanding of the theories you have learned during the first semester.
You will study Analysing Organisations 1 and 2, Business and Management Skills, Case Studies in Management, Economic Principles: Microeconomics, Financial Decision Making, Fundamentals of Financial Reporting, Fundamentals of Management Accounting, Introduction to Work Psychology, Marketing Foundations and Quantitative Methods for Business and Management 1 and 2.Course content for year 2
You now enter a development year, assessing your progress and making initial decisions about your future. You choose a mixture of single semester (ten-credit) and full-year (20-credit) course units, amounting to a total of 120 credits. You will choose course units from accounting and finance, economics, employment studies/law, marketing, operations management, psychology, sociology or statistics.
You need to consider what you want to study in your final year, as some final-year options require you to have completed related second-year course units. If you decide to opt for the BSc (Hons) Management without specialising, you will be able to choose from most course units within the management portfolio.Course content for year 3
In the final year, you will choose at least 60 credits (half) of final-year options from your chosen specialist area. Again, if you decide to opt for the BSc (Hons) Management without specialising you are able to choose from most course units within the management portfolio.Course content for year 4N/ACourse content for year 5N/AAdditional course fee information Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum.

'I particularly enjoyed Operations Management as our lecturer does not teach from books but from his own experience, which makes the course very interactive and practical. It was structured around a group project which has given me a good example of teamwork to talk about in interviews, as we came up with our own business and faced challenges as a group.
I also enjoyed Foundations and Applications of Marketing and Retail Marketing. Our lecturer came up with practical projects, exploring the retail industry while observing shoppers or comparing outlets - we observed the theory we had learned in action. She took seminar groups around the city and showed how different parts of Manchester are marketed, backing up the tour with theory.' - Daria Savilova from Russia, final year Management student

Personal development plans
PDPs are aimed at helping you develop awareness of generic transferable and subject-specific skills, improve independent learning and provide a record of your academic learning and achievement.
All new Alliance Manchester Business School students are allocated an academic advisor who you will meet in regular sessions as part of a first-year course unit. Where possible, you will keep the same academic advisor throughout your time here. Your advisor will support you throughout your studies on matters of an academic nature, from providing feedback on a practice essay in preparation for your `formal' assessment at the end of each semester to discussing your PDP or writing you a reference. We also have a dedicated undergraduate assessment and student support centre within the School, who will be your first point of contact for any ill health or other personal problems which are affecting your work.
We operate a peer mentoring scheme which aims to provide you with a second or final year 'mentor' to provide practical assistance with orientation and induction as well as advice and information on any aspect of student life.Disability support
