Taught Postgraduate Programmes: Masters Degrees

"I learned a huge amount and I would strongly recomment it to future students."
Recent MLitt graduate Ross Allan gives a student perspective.

Our portfolio of innovative and intellectually stimulating taught postgraduate degrees covers a range of general and specialised management-related disciplines. Whether you are new to the Management discipline or searching for a focused programme to extend your existing knowledge, you will find a Masters qualification from St Andrews to suit your needs.

The School of Management's guiding principle of 'responsible enterprise' is a key theme which underpins all of our Masters programmes. We encourage our students to be critical thinkers and to reflect on their learning, so they develop the skills to address the changing demands of the organisations in which they will work. We believe this provides our graduates with skills that add value in their future career and makes them highly sought after by employers upon graduation.

The School of Management usually begins to consider applications to taught postgraduate programmes in October.
