Taught Postgraduate Programmes
On all of its taught postgraduate courses, the School of Business and Economics aims to combine academic excellence with a practice-oriented perspective. It ensures that content is intellectually demanding while being related to the practical world of management.
For candidates with experience in the practical aspects of management, the MBA programme aims to provide a comprehensive set of skills and in-depth knowledge of the main managerial disciplines.
Masters in Management Programmes
MSc Management (International)
MSc Management (Marketing)
MSc Management (Finance)
The Masters in Management programmes are all intensive one-year Master’s degrees designed mainly for recent graduates who have achieved at least a second class honours degree, or overseas equivalent. Work experience is not required. The programmes are primarily designed to meet the needs of graduates who have not previously specialised in Business Studies, or who have studied the subject in a non-UK context.
All four Masters in Management MSc’s are generalist management programmes that aim to develop a sound understanding of a broad range of management disciplines that will enhance employability and allow graduates to gain a sound knowledge and understanding of the key theories and current topics within their chosen field. All of the programmes cover the main business and management subjects during the first part while then allowing the opportunity to focus on a specific area such as marketing, finance or international management, or to continue to study the main general areas of management in more depth.

The School of Business and Economics has a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere and is housed on the University campus in modern, purpose built facilities with its own teaching rooms and up-to-date IT facilities. It has an expanding postgraduate community. In the School’s most recent review of teaching (The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education - November 2002) the highest possible scores were achieved in Business and Management subjects for both academic standards and the quality of the learning opportunities at the School.
The School has extensive PC and multi-user computer facilities, with networked PCs linked to a variety of server platforms. All networked PCs have access to a broad selection of resources such as The FT, Economist and ABI Inform, and students have terminal access to the Datastream financial information system. The School also provides access to telephone/fax, postal and photocopying services, and provides an email address and Internet access. Postgraduate students at the School of Business and Economics have access to computer labs and study areas within the School at any time of the day.
Swansea is a great place to come and study. Our location is impressive, on the doorstep of one of the most beautiful parts of Britain, yet also part of a vibrant, fast-moving city at the sharp end of the changing global economy. More than 10,000 students attend Swansea University, many originating from outside the UK. The campus and student body is large enough to support a large range of academic and social activities, yet small enough to ensure a true sense of community.
