Our integrated and flexible portfolio of Master’s courses are designed to develop skills in management and leadership for those with a technical background or wishing to work within technology-led industries. “ go.warwick.ac.uk/wmg 6 WMG Master’s Programme The academic programme is both challenging and rewarding. Innovative teaching methods are employed to ensure students engage practically with their studies and are well equipped on graduation to apply this to real work scenarios. The MSc programme is structured so that each student takes a combination of ten taught modules, completes ten post module assignments and executes a major research project. Modules Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition usually delivered in an intensive, full-immersion one week block. A variety of innovative teaching methods are used to maximise learning and ensure students are well equipped to apply their knowledge in the work place on completion of the course. Core modules are compulsory and relate specifically to the course you have chosen to study. A combination of key business and management modules are common across our MSc programme and complement modules specific to each course (see course pages 8-31 for details and page 34 for comparison). Elective modules are chosen from the full list on pages 34-35 to supplement Core Modules.* These allow students the flexibility to tailor the programme in line with their specific interests. Up to two non-assessed modules can be taken in addition to your ten assessed modules.* Project Each student has to undertake a major individual research project. This accounts for 50% of the overall credit and is submitted in the form of a dissertation of approximately 20,000 words. An oral examination is held upon completion. Near the start of the course you will be provided with a list of projects relevant to your degree course. However, we can also usually accommodate supervision of projects proposed by students specifically focused on their individual career paths or aspirations. The project must fulfil the academic requirements of the course. All projects are supervised by a WMG member of staff or associate and many relate closely to research developments in industry or research at WMG. Work on your project runs concurrently with your module work. You are expected to devote an appropriate portion of your time and intellectual effort to the project during the year i.e. approximately 900 hours or six to nine months study.

For each module, we had three days of intensive study, followed by two days spent investigating the practical application of the subject through group work and simulations. After that, rather than sit an exam, we had a few weeks to work on our post-module assignments. This was one of the best things about the course for me. Rather that just learning to answer questions in an exam paper, you explore the subject in depth and ‘get under its skin’. In this way, you gain a much broader and deeper understanding of everything you study. “
