This course is taught within Coventry Business School, and benefiting from our over 50 years of teaching business degrees, this course is aimed at professional managers, with at least two years of experience, who have prior learning up to PGDip level in a subject which contains relevant management content. Typically, this prior learning will have been delivered by professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, the Chartered Institute of Marketing or the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
You will then work, in collaboration with your employer, to initiate and deliver a project focused on a ‘live’ management issue, which should allow your work to benefit both yourself and your employer, who through a digital artefact should be able to easily disseminate the findings throughout the business.
Alongside the Management Research Project module, you will also study the module Research Management Skills, which will give you the opportunity to learn the skills needed to design the research for the project, to collect the relevant data, and then to analyse it and present your findings.
Why choose this course?
If you have two years of management work experience*, and prior learning to a PGDip level, successful completion of this course will see you produce a practice focused research project, allowing you to gain a master’s qualification while developing your skills in problem definition, critical thinking and decision making.
Alongside tackling a ‘live’ management issue, which will give you the opportunity to enhance your practical management and project skills, you will also learn about management as a discipline, and explore how to apply management theory to real-world situations through investigation.
In addition to allowing you to gain a master’s qualification upon successful completion of the course, the course aims to bring real benefits to your employer, who should be able to access and share your findings easily through your digital artefact, which could be a web page or interactive PDF. Alongside the production of this artefact, you will also have the opportunity to develop your communications skills, to help in presenting your findings to invested stakeholders.
Taught by practice focused academics, with experience of management from a practitioner and academic perspective, and designed to be flexible around your work, this course is a great way to try to further develop your management skills through focusing on a relevant and authentic research project.
