Course description

Our flexible Management degrees share a common first year before allowing you to focus on your chosen specialism to enhance your career prospects. With over 90 course units to choose from, you really can shape your own degree.

BSc (Hons) Management (Innovation, Sustainability and Entrepreneurship) with Industrial/Professional Experience will be ideal if you are interested in exploring the area of strategic innovation management and sustainable development through real company case study analysis, as well as having the opportunity to study entrepreneurship and small business development. You will complete a work placement in your penultimate year.

To graduate with BSc (Hons) Management (Innovation, Sustainability and Entrepreneurship), you need to have studied at least 40 credits of second-year options (one third of your studies) and at least 60 credits of final-year options (half of your studies) from the Innovation, Sustainability and Entrepreneurship subject area.

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.

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

  • Study a broad-based management degree whilst specialising in innovation, sustainability and entrepreneurship
  • Your chosen specialism will be reflected in your final degree title - BSc (Hons) Management (Innovation, Sustainability and Entrepreneurship)
  • Don't want to specialise? Graduate with BSc (Hons) Management
  • Includes a work placment in your penultimate year of study
  • 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

    BSc (Hons) Management (Innovation, Sustainability and Innovation) students will choose a minimum of 40 credits from their specialist subject area. 10 credits must be taken in Business Intrapreneurship Skills, with the remaining 30 credits to be chosen from Innovation in Product Markets, Enabling Creativity and Managing Creative Organisations, Sustainable Innovation Management and Environmental Management for Sustainable Development (EMSD). EMSD students have previously enjoyed guest lectures from the CoOp, Centrica, ERM and a US academic researching for the World Bank and completed enquiry-based projects on topics such as consumer behaviour and its role in practices related to purchasing 'sustainable' coffee.

    You can choose your remaining 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.

    Course content for year 3If successful, you will spend your third year on a paid work placement. Completing a placement will enable you to put theory into practice, further develop important transferable skills and gain a real insight into your chosen profession.Course content for year 4In the final year, you will choose at least 60 credits (half) of final-year options from your chosen specialism. Course units currently available include Behavioural Strategy, Cases in Sustainable Development (delivered by Manchester Enterprise Centre), Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development, Global Management, People and the Digital Divide and International Competitiveness and Innovation.Additional course fee information Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum.

    What our students say

    '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
