Management MA (Hons) 2021 entry
The MA (Hons) in Management introduces you to organisations in all sectors and teaches you to understand techniques which draw from the subject including marketing, organisational behaviour, managing in diverse and challenging situations, and analysing financial data. From your studies, you acquire interpersonal skills in problem solving, critical thinking and self-reliance, and are empowered to interrogate evidence, challenge logic, and question existing ways of doing things.
You will learn from a team of international scholars whose teaching and research are based on the concept of responsible enterprise, which entails an ethical approach to managing organisations and their social and environmental impacts.
Management is available as both a Bachelor of Science (BSc) and a Master of Arts (MA) degree. The content of the subjects is the same irrespective of Faculty. Students who have a background in the arts or who wish to study Management alongside Art subjects at St Andrews should apply for the MA. For those interested in studying Management alongside Science subjects, the BSc in Management may be of interest instead. The entry requirements are the same for all single Honours Management degrees, and the chance of receiving an offer is the same for each of these degrees.
