Alumni management student Deepsheka
I studied my MSc in Management at Bayes and lived my dream life amidst beautiful monuments, in the dream city of London! Studying at Bayes is a great way to experience the City, learn from leading experts and enjoy the benefits of a global international student community. You will extend your network worldwide and gain new friends living on the other side of the globe (thanks to the core groups for course works), learning a lot from them in the process.

Objectives

In our Master’s in Management, with its MBA-style curriculum, you’ll learn how to analyse complex strategic and operational management issues within an international context and develop the flexibility required by roles from operations to strategy.

Build a deep understanding of the challenges and prospects for all industry sectors, types and sizes of organisations around the world, including large multinationals, SMEs, family businesses and start-ups.

With opportunities to take electives from across our master’s programmes, including at Bayes sister institutions around the world, and in out-of-classroom live business settings, you can design a course to meet your particular interests and professional goals.
