Master of Management (MM)

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.
