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 (MiM) 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.
