The Department of Management coordinates the teaching of students on the four-year Scottish undergraduate MA Management programme. In the first two years, students study introductory and intermediate courses in Management, Accountancy, Statistics and Economics alongside courses chosen from other disciplines within the MA programme. In the final two years students are able to choose from a wide range of Management honours courses, and write a dissertation on a topic of their choice. Management graduates are able to take advantage of opportunities across a wide spectrum of employment possibilities, from large multinational blue-chips to small and medium-sized enterprises in any number of private and public sector industries.
