Our courses are intellectually stretching. They challenge you to become researchers, independent thinkers and problem solvers. We encourage you to question and interrogate, not just so you gain the skills employers want, but so you can transform organisations for the better.
Our courses are informed by responsible management practices and the latest academic thinking; the work that's solving challenges for international businesses right now. You’re taught by some of the world’s most respected academics, Essex is ranked in the UK’s top 25 for research quality (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019), and study a curriculum influenced by practice; our Advisory Board helps to shape our degree content and includes representatives from the likes of Goldman Sachs, Rolls Royce and HP.
You explore the issues facing today’s global economies and consider how management continues to evolve and impact society. You learn the essentials of business in a welcoming, international environment and can access study skills support to help you reach your academic potential. We help you to analyse complex information, demonstrate clarity of thought and present arguments concisely, so you graduate with the knowledge and business know how to excel in your career.
