Prior work experience and a first degree in Business and Management are not essential; we explore fundamental principles of business and management with a focus on your employability.

What you'll learn


At an advanced level, you’ll study of a range of organisations and the rapidly changing environments in which they operate both nationally and internationally. You’ll also specialise by studying and researching within the field of entrepreneurship.

Expect to enhance your academic research skills and practical management skills. You’ll need these in order to manage human resources, use complex organisational systems and face the challenging issues affecting business in a rigorous, pragmatic and effective manner.

How will I be assessed?

We use a range of assessment tasks, including essays, reports, exams and presentations. You’ll work independently and as part of a team, including for assessments.

How will I be taught?

While independent study is key at Master’s level, Bath Spa University is a leading, teaching-focussed University, so we support you throughout your degree. You’ll learn through lectures, seminars, practical workshops, assessments, guided study and individual and group tutorials with your lecturers.


Work experience and industry links

We use simulated work experience strategies that require you to operate as if in a real-world work environment. The curriculum is enriched by links with industry. For instance, assessments may be formed around live briefs provided by local, national or international organisations, who will work collaboratively with you to develop solutions to existing business problems or needs.

While you have the option of doing a traditional postgraduate dissertation, on the MA in Business and Management you also have the option of doing a Consultancy Project for your final 60 credit module. If you choose this option, you’ll work with an existing or nascent business to undertake research related to an issue posed by the business; providing ideas, information and management advice. This complements traditional academic and research skills but gives you real world experience invaluable for your own careers development.


Careers team

The University’s Careers and Employability team, provide regular career and placement-specific workshops, as well as one-to-one, dedicated advice sessions, to help you source and secure formative work placement experiences throughout and after your studies at Bath Spa University.
