Top 7 Graduate Pathways in Management Studies 2019/2020

Graduate pathways are designed to aid international students in entering master’s-level academics in an English-speaking nation. Along with early courses in the major’s post-graduate curriculum, the pathway features studies in English communication and preparation for entrance exams.

What is a graduate pathway in management studies? This program transitions students with bachelor’s degrees in business management to the master’s level, expanding on prior courses with advanced studies of organizational and leadership strategies suited to modern businesses. Coursework may include essays, reports and group presentations in the management courses, supplemented by studies in written and oral English. Some programs allow students to tailor their curriculum to specialize their studies.

Through earning a graduate pathway in management studies, enrollees have the opportunity to improve their English within a professional and academic context. The courses can also bolster relevant leadership skills such as planning and organization, decision-making and effective communication.

The costs of a graduate pathway vary, depending on tuition rates at the host college, as fitting the program duration, typically about a year. Other costs may also factor in for necessary textbooks, room and board, and so on, and students should consult with admissions on the details.

A graduate pathway in management studies can be key to completing a master’s degree in the major, which provides valuable qualifications for management jobs within various businesses. Many positions as managers, including sales, human resources, and business development, take direct administrative roles over various organizational functions. Others, like finance controllers or management consultants, assess and address workforce issues to enable more effective performance. Some graduates may seek to start their own businesses as entrepreneurs to most directly apply their education.

Graduate pathways can be taken at many English-speaking universities. International students may pursue management studies pathways at business schools, and some of these offer online courses for distance learning. For further information, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
