Objectives

In developing the program, the Department has recognized that students may want to improve their job opportunities, change career direction or seek a fresh intellectual stimulus. Many are also looking for an enhancement of general business management rather than specialist skills. Increasingly from the employer’s perspective, organization is seeking future business leaders with improved ‘softer’ such as good interpersonal skills with employees.

Businesses also want their graduates to be exposed to a research driven environment which is capable of involving a range of business issues. The Department of Management Sciences at CIIT can answer all these needs.

It is also suitable for experienced professionals or fast-track managers who already have an MBA or related qualification and are seeking continued learning and progression in their field. CIITs’ MS program is the ultimate professional business qualification and provides an accelerated route to a doctorate, enabling you to make a contribution to knowledge and practice through research that contributes to new thinking.

It takes you onto a greater contribution in the workplace and offers a higher intellectual platform to develop capabilities beyond those generally attainable through normal work. It aims to improve the ability to apply concepts to practice, to develop your thinking processes, increase writing skills and enhance professional credibility. The MS is designed to contribute to the sponsoring organization and to development, in a way which cannot be gained by experience alone.

Students will be supervised by leading CIIT academics. In the first year you are supported by our research training program which forms the basis for the taught element of the program. As MS research is likely to be thematic rather than discipline based, candidates are supported by a panel of senior faculty members rather than a single supervisor, to ensure that most relevant support is provided.
