University of Essex Online today announces the launch of three new Masters degree business pathways: MSc Business with Finance, MSc Business with Human Resources and MSc Business with Marketing. All three programmes are 100% online and part-time and are to be validated by the University of Essex.
University of Essex Online’s existing MSc Business and Management degree is an extremely popular postgraduate programme, offering students the opportunity to develop a thorough understanding of modern management concepts and techniques while also improving their confidence in strategic areas including management principles and practices, leadership in practice and economics for managers. The introduction of these three additional pathways will allow students to improve their advanced business knowledge while also developing specialised knowledge in an area that is relevant to their interests or future career path.
These three programmes will appeal to UK and international students, with modules covering a wide range of challenging and thought-provoking topics including financial decision-making, human resource management, marketing strategy and management and many more. Developed and taught by subject experts in both disciplines, the courses provide an excellent opportunity for students around the world to enhance their career development and improve their employability.
Liz Kirrane, Head of Business, said: “These three new programmes are fantastic new additions to the suite of postgraduate programmes already offered by University of Essex Online. We are dedicated to improving employability amongst our graduates and feel that these courses will allow students to demonstrate to future employers that they possess the business-specific skills required to progress in either a private, public or non-profit making organisation. The Business department has worked hard to create exciting and thought-provoking course content for our learners, and we can’t wait to tutor our first classes”.
The first intake for all three programmes will be in January 2018, with more planned at regular intervals throughout the year.
Students at University of Essex Online study entirely online using a virtual learning platform, receiving high-quality resources and support from experienced tutors. This allows students around the world to discuss and debate key issues within their disciplines, discover specialised areas/or applications of theories and build working and social relationships with classmates.
Upon completion of their online MSc Business with Finance, MSc Business with Human Resources and MSc Business with Marketing, graduates will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex campus in Colchester.
