A robust strategy, implemented well and managed effectively, enables organisations to operate competitively and to thrive in an ever-changing, increasingly challenging business landscape. The success of a strategy’s execution depends largely on the talent and capability of its leadership. Without these, even the sharpest of strategies won't yield the desired outcomes.
Accredited by ILM, this contemporary Strategic Management Masters programme, with an optional specialist Strategic Sustainability Management pathway, is suited to those with strategic responsibility or who are becoming involved with organisational strategy.

“It was a necessity for me to continue to work while studying for my degree. By studying online at Derby, it allowed me to achieve a degree which otherwise would not have been possible.
I met and became friends with people from all over the world. Together we supported each other throughout our degrees. All the tutors and academic staff were brilliant and responded promptly to any learning enquiries.
I have noticed an improvement in my self-esteem and self-belief. Every time I managed to exceed the grade I thought was possible for me, I realised that I can achieve and the only person who had stopped me from doing so in the past was me. Studying alongside working was difficult to manage at times but has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.”
“There was no way I would have been able to give up my current commitments and attend university full time. I realised that online study was the only option that would provide the flexibility that I needed.
I really enjoyed studying online and I think the resources provided are excellent. I can access learning material as and when it’s convenient for me and the forum is used effectively as an interactive space in which discussions and ideas can develop. I’ve also been impressed with the scope of the digital library, both for books and journals, and this is something that I think makes a big difference to the success of the course.
Online study through the University of Derby Online Learning has provided me with a good route to achieving my goals and I also think that it’s good value for money – the perfect combination.”
'I first came across the university when I was looking for something new, relevant to my work and challenging and UDOL presented all that. I ended up registering for three free MOOC’s [free Massive Open Online Courses].
The teaching and support from the lecturers has been wonderful. They are always there to support students. Discovering UDOL was the best solution to my thirst for studying and continuing development because it offers me the freedom, as well as enabling me to combine work, study, and my private life.'
