The Two-Year MSc is the ideal choice for those who wish to do a year of study on the business fundamentals before specialising on the MSc itself.
The Two-Year MSc is designed also for students who hold a three-year bachelor's degree rather than the four-year degree normally required for entry to our MSc programmes.
It is available for students going on to any of our MScs except the MSc European Financial Management or the MSc Global Luxury Management.
