    This programme aims to develop a critical understanding of the factors that influence commercial management, in particular the principles and practice of competitive bidding and bid evaluation.

    Module details

    The programme commences in mid-September and for the first two semesters students follow a programme of lectures, tutorials and assignments. This programme involves examinations in January and in May/June. The remaining months are spent on a research project and the submission of a dissertation, which must be submitted by the beginning of the following September.

    The programme is based on a template of 5 core units and 3 optional or directed units. Following the successful completion of 8 units (120 credits) students will undertake a dissertation. The dissertation, if at all possible, should relate to a real project situation. However, when this is not possible dissertation topics related to the programme content can be agreed.

    The core course units are common to each route and typically include:-

    * Commercial Management
    * Management of Projects
    * People and Organisation
    * Project Planning and Control
    * Project Management Research Methods

    Optional and directed course units typically include:

    * Business Projects Involving IS/IT
    * Commercial Contract Management
    * Conflict Management and Dispute Resolution
    * Project Finance
    * Risk Management


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
