Study Details

MSc Part Time, 3 Years

Here at Hertfordshire Business School, we’ve designed a part-time MSc in Business and Organisational Strategy to help busy professionals develop their careers.

If you’d like to build on your business or management experience, deepen your knowledge and open up new career possibilities, this Master’s is an exciting opportunity to fit postgraduate study around your existing work schedule.

When you graduate, you’ll not only achieve an MSc in Business and Organisational Strategy, but also a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Level 7 extended diploma in Management and Leadership. This highly respected diploma also gives you exemptions from some of the CMI’s additional qualifications, so if you’re aiming for Chartered Manager status, you’ll achieve it sooner.

The course develops your management skills in a whole range of areas, including:

  • personal development planning
  • strategic business planning
  • managing business strategy
  • developing strategic HR
  • social marketing
  • time management
  • financial management
  • strategic leadership
  • information management
  • organisational change

At the same time, our Master’s equips you to undertake in-depth research and communicate complex business ideas – excellent skills for advancing your career and your business.

At Hertfordshire Business School, we welcome postgraduate students with a first degree in any subject at 2:2 level or above. However, if you don’t have a degree but can provide evidence of at least three years’ relevant, substantive work experience, we’ll also consider your application.

This is a three-year, modular Master’s with teaching based around five weekends per year. We attract a highly motivated community of postgraduate students with diverse business experience. Joining them on our Hertfordshire campus, you’ll learn in an interactive, workshop-based environment, working on strategic challenges with small groups of fellow students.

After each study weekend, you’ll carry on independent study with the support of our academic team. Studying alongside your working life is a challenging but incredibly rewarding experience, giving you valuable opportunities to directly and immediately apply what you learn.
