MSc in Managing People, Knowledge and Change

This programme will provide you with a better understanding of the various challenges facing the practising manager and consultant from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

Uniquely, the programme draws its inspiration from the internationally recognised research areas of the lecturers on the programme. These include the fields of knowledge management, identity in organisations, organisational culture, and leadership and change.

In particular, the programme emphasises the strategic nature of the contemporary challenges associated with managing organisations and work. Theoretical concepts, models and tools will be compared with real and complex problems in organisations in order to train students in advanced problem solving. The course also aims at introducing, explaining and applying the methodological aspects of studying organisations, especially in terms of interventions aimed at bringing about organisational change.

The Lund Learning Model

The School of Economics and Management adopts a student- centred approach to teaching and learning. The aim is to increase students’ capacity for advanced problem solving, resulting in better decision-making abilities. Our courses are based on state-of-the-art research in each particular field, and we encourage students to improve their skills in terms of both critical thinking and practical application.

Career prospects

The programme is aimed in particular, but not exclusively, at students seeking to pursue careers in management consulting, human resources or general management. It is evident that the labour market values graduates who have a combination of in-depth business knowledge and knowledge of human resources. You will be able to work in fields such as management consultancy, human resources and general management.
