MSc Strategic Leadership and Change


Course Description

Manchester Metropolitan University is currently undertaking a review of long-term academic provision on the Cheshire campus. The review will look at how we might re-focus the types of courses offered at Cheshire in the context of the wider University provision. A range of options is currently being considered.

We can confirm that we are taking and processing applications for full time postgraduate courses and any part time courses of one year duration starting in 2017 on the Cheshire Campus. However, with regard to longer part time postgraduate courses, due to the ongoing review, the University will accept applications for courses delivered at Cheshire but will not process those applications until more is known in respect of the future of the campus.

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.

(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".
