Strategic Leadership and Change - MSc

Course Description

Important information: academic review of Manchester Metropolitan University Cheshire campus

Manchester Metropolitan University has been undertaking a review of the long-term future of academic provision at its Cheshire campus. It has now been confirmed that the University will withdraw from the Cheshire campus. This means that we expect the campus to close in the summer of 2019.

As the withdrawal from the campus will be a phased process we are still pleased to receive applications for one year full time postgraduate taught courses starting in 2017 on the Cheshire campus. We also continue to welcome applications for part time postgraduate courses of two years in duration in the Exercise and Sport Science department starting in 2017. Applications for courses that are expected to take longer than two years to complete are currently on hold.

Please visit our website for the latest information on the review: http://www.cheshire.mmu.ac.uk/campusreview

With both private and public sector organisations facing change on an unprecedented scale, the commercial environment has become turbulent and complex. It is now more important than ever for organisations to be flexible and adaptable to respond effectively to the key challenges of globalisation, increasingly sophisticated customer bases and advances in technology - all factors that place even greater emphasis on strong leadership.

This programme will be ideal for you, if you are working within management. It provides you with a strong understanding of the nature of effective leadership and change by encouraging you to draw on your own experiences. The benefit of using real observations is that it will help you develop solutions of practical significance. By studying this internationally recognised award, you will develop a keen awareness of the most up-to-date management thinking and practice.

(Student Profile)

Paul Mooney

"I am finding the course very informative, interesting but also challenging. There are very high expectations on postgraduate study in this department which makes students want to perform to a high standard. I hope to be able to use my influence to ensure my organisation keeps people, personal development and promotion of the knowledge economy at the forefront of its strategic planning.

Learning new skills and developing my understanding and knowledge about strategic leadership, it’s also been really good to meet new people and MMU is a really great place to learn. I've learnt how to research, learn about myself and use a range of techniques to self develop and become better at what I do.

When you are in industry, you really do feel that you are on top of your game and know all there is to know. The simple truth is this is not the case, there is a wealth of new learning opportunities out there and MMU have put together a really comprehensive programme that certainly ticked the boxes for me. Studying part-time is very challenging but equally rewarding.

Already the course is making me be a better manager because I am learning so much but there is little doubt that when I pass the course, having an MSc will allow me to apply for positions at a higher level in my sector".
