Undergraduate study in Management & Organisation

Why Study in the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology?

Our three departmental degrees are designed to give you a broad appreciation of management theory and practice combined with specialised knowledge of either human resource management, management and information technology, or organisational behaviour. And you'll be able to broaden your knowledge by including modules from other management areas – or other disciplines entirely.

Our degrees provide a balance of theory and practice and prepare you for work upon graduation. While the Management and IT degree requires a placement year in industry, our two other degrees allow you to choose a placement year as an option. Our department has one of the strongest research groups of its kind both in the UK and abroad. You will thus be taught by some of the leading thinkers in the field.

Focuses on understanding people, how they work and how their behaviour is influenced by management practices.
