Employers need managers who can navigate the complexities of business and show global awareness. Our MSc in Management will equip you with these key skills and a range of management techniques to prepare you for a successful career.
This programme is for graduates of all backgrounds who want to kick-start their management career and achieve an industry-standard level in management studies. It has been developed by Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) through a co-design approach - reviewed each year by students, alumni and business representatives to ensure continuous improvement and absolute relevance.
A key part of the MSc Management is nurturing your professional and career development. A dedicated careers adviser will help you to create a personalised career plan and you will be invited to attend employer events and access our global network of LUMS alumni.
For one week in summer, you and your peers will travel to a highly-ranked overseas business school to gain invaluable experience of international commerce through company visits, seminars and workshops. In addition, you can choose to write a dissertation about an international topic at a partner business school overseas.
Another option is the summer project, working to a brief presented by a real-life company and delivering a solution and a business report. This project can then form the basis of your dissertation.

The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.
If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.
What are tuition fees for?
Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.
The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.
Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.
How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?
Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.
What support is available towards tuition fees?
Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
