Master’s programme in Management

MSc with a major in Management | 1 year | 60 credits

Kick-start your management career with our Master's in Management that will transform you from an ambitious graduate into a successful manager. You will learn to apply the skills you acquire in a range of areas including marketing, strategic management, business consultancy and organisational development.

This intensive, one-year full-time programme prepares recent, non-business graduates for a wide range of careers in management. An emphasis on skills takes students beyond the theory and into the heart of real-life management challenges. You will refine and build upon your communication, teamworking, and presentation skills through individual and group work, and develop your professional skills in decision-making, problem-solving, analysis, and critical reflection.

You may already have career goals in mind or perhaps you are still considering what route, role and environment will best suit you in the business world. Either way, this degree programme will prepare you for leadership in the fast-moving business world. It is driven by a practical and applied teaching philosophy that focuses on experiential learning and development, and you will learn from real-life case studies how to put the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice.

Your fellow students are high achievers from around the world enriching your learning experience, and high-profile industry leaders regularly speak on campus. The programme has been developed by our renowned faculty in close cooperation with leading companies to ensure that it provides highly-relevant transferable skills and knowledge for the workplace and beyond.

The programme is designed for students that already hold a recent first degree in a subject other than business or management, looking to develop key managerial skills.

International Master Class

Starting in the autumn of 2019, LUSEM invites students enrolled in selected one-year Master’s programmes to apply for an "International Master Class" at one of our prestigious partner universities. This is an unique opportunity to add-on a semester to the masters’ studies in Lund.

We are divided into "base teams", which have been specifically chosen by our professor depending on our background, previous education and learning styles. We mainly learn how to work and manage diverse and integrated teams, since most of our assignments are to be done within a base team or another large group. By working in a diverse team, we need to learn how to accept all of our different learning styles, to be flexible, to be understanding and how to manage each other. What I have personally learned is is my own learning style, my way of thinking and making decisions, and what I want and expect out of my life.
