Minor in Management Studies

UCAS code: Your UCAS code will be the code of your Major.

Available for students starting in September 2019.

If you choose a Minor in Management Studies you will study the enormous impact organisations have on all of us, whether we are customers, employees or, more generally, citizens. We are born in, educated in, work in, play in, are governed by, obtain goods and services from, receive medical treatment in and die in organisations. And these organisations are all managed to a greater or lesser degree.

Our Minor in Management Studies offers you a programme of learning which will expose you to the realities of management and the managerial experience across this wide range of organisations. The course covers the relevance of both management theory and practice for the solution of problems in international, national and local contexts. It also explores situations in which management has failed and in which management failures have actually contributed to social, economic, political or environmental problems.

Computer Science with Management

A particularly popular combination is a Major in Computer Science with a Minor in Management Studies. If you are interested in this pathway, please apply for our BSc in Computer Science with Management.

Year 1

In your first year you will be introduced to some of the key concepts of management and management practice. This will give you a sound basis on which to build in subsequent semesters. 


  • Management Theory and Debate
  • Business Finance and Reporting

Year 2

In your second year you will study the fundamental principles of behaviour of individuals and groups in organisations and develop your appreciation of the potential for and the limitations of, managerial influence on organisational processes. You will also learn how to conduct research that has the potential to inform practical organisational decisions. 


  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Operations Management

Year 3

In your final year you will transition from studying a broad overview of a subject to improving your critical thinking skills. The module in the first term will further extend your understanding of key debates in and issues around strategy. The second term module examines business from an international context.
