A Management degree builds a strong foundation in a wide variety of fields including business, finance, economics and marketing. It develops students’ understanding of business practices, structures, business theory, business strategy and research as well as global economies and financial markets. Doing a Management Degree also allows students to gain skills that enable them to work with financial and numerical data effectively.
Management degrees cover different managerial roles, such as Human Resource (HR) management, hospitality management, innovation management, operations management, etc. They can be specialized into one of the areas mentioned above or follow a more general approach that covers most of these areas.
The range of management degrees is huge and includes Business Management, Management, Marketing Management, etc. They are predominantly offered in the business departments/business schools/management schools of different universities.
One of the main benefits of this degree is that Management is a broad discipline, which keeps students’ career options open.
Management degrees could have a very practical focus, which is an opportunity for students to gain experience in the process of completing their degree before having started their professional careers. Management courses usually offer work placements and practical modules, which include business simulations and business creation in a simulated environment. Acquiring practical experience through these opportunities could make students stand out from the crowd in the job market once they graduate. Research-oriented Management degrees also exist for those who prefer the theoretical aspects of such a degree. Most courses, however, have established a good balance between theory and practice in order to meet the needs of all students.
Management degrees also prepare students to serve the managerial role across a wide range of areas, including HR management, hospitality management, innovation management, operations management, etc. Students can specialize in one particular area or focus on gaining knowledge across all of these areas thanks to the high availability of different management courses.
Additionally, there is a high demand for management professionals in the contemporary business world. Therefore, taking a management course is an opportunity for students to kick-start their careers and occupy a higher position in the organizational hierarchy.
Management courses usually begin by introducing students to different areas covered by the managerial role, such as organizational management, business environment, statistics, accounting and finance, business growth, etc. After the first year, institutions allow students to explore the management discipline into more depth by delivering specialized modules and offering optional modules, which enable students to choose subjects that interest them the most and are most relevant to their career aspirations.
Management degrees take 3 years to complete in the UK. However, their duration could extend to 4 years if students choose to spend a year in industry between their second and third year, which is a popular option among the student community. Setting placement opportunities apart, the duration of a Management degree depends on three main factors – country, mode of study (part-time or full-time) and degree level. Below are listed the approximate durations of Management degrees in the most popular countries for Higher Education in Europe:
I am really enjoining this program, to date, it keeps meeting my expectations.
I have the possibility to meet and work with people from all over the world with a wide variety of nationalities and, most importantly, personalities. I also have the possibility to live and study in three different incredible European cities: London, Turin, and Berlin and I think that the value of this offer is inestimable.
I am studying a wide variety of subjects, both science, and humanities, and I noticed that this really changed my mindset regarding working with different methods and environments.
Obviously, living abroad has its drawbacks: first of all, you have to find accommodation. But the school really tries to help during this process, sharing flats announcements and suggestions. Furthermore, during your life on Campus, someone is always available for any kind of necessity: from physical or mental health to the career service, or to get help with your VISA if needed. During these years of Covid, for example, we were always followed and supported by both the Program Office and the campus Doctor. It has been a really important help.
When possible, numerous activities and events have been organized, such as the Sports Day or the Carnival and the Christmas parties. We had such a great time, this year in particular since the rules for the pandemic were a little less strict.
I would really recommend this experience to anyone who feels ready for a three-year adventure, is open-minded, and is willing to meet and learn from new cultures and stimulating environments.
One of my favourite things about the program is how diverse the people are. While studying in different countries thanks to their international course, you get the chance to socialise with people that have lived across the globe and develop meaningful friendships with them. The facilities are great as well as the staff in general.
One thing that could be improved is the fact that half of our classes are online, making me feel like I do not spend enough time on campus.View more
The ESCP bachelor is an incredible opportunity to study with very high-quality teachers who are involved with bachelor’s and master’s students but also to travel across Europe. In fact, when you do the bachelor’s degree, you will be committed to travelling to 3 cities in 3 different countries for 3 years. Last year in Paris was very nice, the campus is located in the center of the city with modern facilities.
This year, I’m experiencing the Madrid campus which is modest but has a very nice ambiance, at the same time to study, meet some friends or have a break. There is a large green area and the campus is very bright. Apart from that, studying the language, discovering the city and enjoying the culture of Madrid is a real pleasure.
I hope to be as well surprised in Berlin next year!
ESCP was among the only business schools in Europe to offer a complete and well-designed Master in Sustainability Management. The courses are very interesting, focused on sustainability issues, professors are committed and the Master incorporates practical courses such as consultancy projects and an internship.
Additionally, the international environment and the possibility to move to different cities is unique and extremely enjoyable.
This university is quite good. The ranking is good and the best thing about it is the opportunity you get to travel and meet people from all around the world. Most of the teachers are very much committed.View more
I am graduating from ESCP in 6 months and if I could, I would do it all over again. The program allowed me to live in 3 cities (London, Turin, Berlin) in 3 years, which was perfect for a travel-enthusiast like me. The courses are very diverse and the professors are good and I would say that I acquired a very rich and broad overview over the different departments in business. Another big advantage of the program is that you’re gaining work experience through multiple internships, which I believe is what helped me most in regards to defining my next steps after the Bachelor program.View more
– Very international school with diverse student base
– Valuable intercultural opportunities during visits at ESCPs various campuses
– Wide range of elective courses to chose from when “building your own degree”
The ESCP London campus is amazing. The buildings are old from the outside but modern inside. Technology level, you have everything you need. The atmosphere is warm. Being an international school, people speak mainly English to each other; it can be complicated at first but it’s kind of cool I think. The teachers are always here for you if you need anything. However, the campus is not in the centre of London so it can be annoying sometimes. Courses are great and interesting. Student life: different associations exist but the direction of the school doesn’t take part in it which can bring complication to the development of new ones. After doing your degree at ESCP, you have a lot opportunity of career thanks to the alumni or the internship, this is a real must.View more
Great program with a lot of international mobility between campuses, interesting & international people and amazing opportunities for internships abroad, exchanges and double diploma.
Quality of classes and administrative structure and processes could be improved to better suit students’ need and increase overall efficiency.
University particularly oriented to the world of work, both from the point of view of the lessons, which instead of being purely educational give the opportunity through various projects and group work to prepare students for the working world; both from the point of view of the tools provided to students, such as the job teaser and tutors made available by each campus.View more
