Management is a distinct social science discipline focusing on how organisations operate and behave and how value is created in multiple organisational forms – for example, the public sector; small, medium and large companies; family businesses; charities; non-governmental organisations (NGOs); cooperatives; and social enterprises. The School of Management examines these operations and behaviours through the lens of responsible enterprise, focusing on the wider impact of organisations and their interactions with stakeholders within their local context and on a global scale.
Students with a degree in Management from the University of St Andrews will not only develop an understanding of how business and management function, they will also gain knowledge of markets, finance and accounting, strategy development, entrepreneurship, managing and developing people, creativity and policy.
