Business executives, government officers as well as teachers have expressed the need to upgrade their qualifications and management capabilities to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive environment. For the last eight years, the Faculty of Business and Accountancy has offered a one year Master of Management (MM) programme to employees of client organisations upon specific arrangement with such organisations. The programme is conducted on a full time basis and usually opens only to members of the client organisations. There is however, a growing need for graduate level management education among a cross section of industry players and few of these aspiring graduates cannot afford to take a full year off work. The UMGSB along with its experience in providing management education is now able to cater to this group with its part time Master of Management programme that is open to all individuals who meet the admission requirements
Graduates with MM degree will have vast knowledge in managing organization and leadership. The graduates who are middle and senior level managers can move up into the management area.

The design of the courses and components allows students to maximise their learning and develop the skills that are essential for their career development. Students are required to take a total of 43 credits as follows:

The Research Project for the MM programme provides an opportunity for students to conduct in depth research in the area of management. The research report should demonstrate that the student has the ability to carry out research and the ability to carry out constructive criticism, as well as to report their findings accurately and coherently. This research component is in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of MM.
