Cass Business School – City University London - Masters in Management
City University London Masters in Management Program Structure
The City University London Master’s in Management at Cass Business School takes place over the course of three terms (12 months). The program is designed for those who have obtained or are currently in the last term of obtaining an undergraduate degree in any area of study. The structure of the program is styled similarly to the Cass MBA program.
The program begins in September with a Foundations of Management workshop, which prepares students with some of the concepts necessary to complete the program. This workshop also includes careers and professional skills development workshops.
The first term consists of four core modules: Accounting & Finance, Principles of Marketing & Strategy, Organizational Behavior & HRM, and Quantitative Methods for Business.
The second term consists of two core modules and two electives.
The third term consists of three elective modules and a Business Research Project.
Elective options vary each year. Topics for electives range from air transport and supply chain finance to operational risk management and customer services and relationship management.
The Business Research Project is an eight thousand-word project that gives students the opportunity to specialize in a contemporary management topic that is related to a student’s future career. This project can be completed in partnership with a sponsoring organization or an organization that a student wishes to work for in the future.
City University London Master’s in Management is for students who are beginning their careers, who may not have any professional work experience. Those students who have more than three years of work experience are encouraged to apply for Cass’s MBA program. Applicants are strongly encouraged to take the GMAT test. The school looks for a well-balanced score in the range of 600-800.
The average age of the most recent class is 23-years old, with around 50 percent female students.
