The Pre-Master's in Business, Management & Marketing will refresh your subject knowledge and improve your English language skills, preparing you for your postgraduate degree at the University of Huddersfield’s Business School.
The Pre-Master's programme is specially designed to prepare ambitious international students with the skills and understanding needed to succeed in a postgraduate degree at Huddersfield. With a postgraduate degree, you can improve your career opportunities and salary potential, and even change career direction after completing your undergraduate degree.
This programme consists of twenty hours of teaching time per week, taught over a single semester with a choice of modules, all taught on the University campus.
You will develop your skills through a range of core and subject-specific modules, carefully selected to ensure you progress to your Master's degree with all you need to succeed.
This module provides students with an introduction to economic theories and systems, and considers principally the macroeconomic environment in which businesses and other organisations operate. In addition, this module will give students a basic grounding in financial and management accounting. Students will progress from the understanding of basic financial statements through to interpretation and critical analysis of key data in a formal report examining current UK company and industry performance.
This module will give students the opportunity to develop awareness and competency in the range of academic language-related skills required for successful study at Higher Education level. These include the processes and conventions of academic writing, effective and extensive reading strategies, effective participation in seminars and delivery of presentations, and listening to and recording information effectively from lectures. Students will be provided with an opportunity to develop the accuracy and range of written and spoken language with clarity and confidence, as well as to reflect on their learning and identify how to improve their skills and language.
In this module students will develop skills in the methods and techniques of research, and the ability to write a substantive piece of academic work based on a simulated research project. Students will develop their ability to understand and interpret qualitative and quantitative data, and will use Excel to apply common statistical techniques to data analysis and research findings.
In this module students will develop an understanding of (and the ability to analyse and evaluate) strategic business models. Students will also then critically consider how the key principles of Operations and Strategic Management help deliver a company’s strategy. Students will then complete a presentation and project report which applies these knowledge and skills to a present day industry.
