Programme Overview
The MSc in Product Management allows graduates of the Postgraduate Diploma to continue their study for a further year and attain a Master’s of Science Award. The M.Sc. in Product Management is delivered over a nine month period and consists of three core modules and a thesis. Taught modules are delivered between January and May with thesis submission in September.

While the postgraduate diploma focuses on functional analysis and action through best practice, the master’s curriculum builds on that foundation leveraging strategic thinking and critical reflection. It involves a significant degree of self-directed learning.
