This Master's Stage Award is ideal if you already hold a postgraduate award in a general management discipline worth 120 CATs, or have demonstrated that you meet the knowledge requirements based on your work experience at a senior level.

The programme is delivered as a part-taught provision. The focus is on strategic awareness through undertaking a dissertation concerned with a ‘real’ business problem. 

Whether you have worked in business for a number of years, or are a specialist and wish to progress into a more senior management position, this course will provide you with an opportunity to work at a more theoretical level on the issues that matter in business.

From 2018, the University of Gloucestershire School of Business and Technology will move to a brand-new, state-of-the-art home at our Oxstalls campus in Gloucester. The £16 million development will be home to our Business, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Law and Accounting and Finance courses.
