Today we are facing a revolution in leadership around the world.
This highly praised and unique Masters programme provides those involved in ‘leading’ an opportunity to explore leadership in general and their own leadership in particular, in challenging and exciting ways.
It engages the depth of the latest academic research across a wide spectrum of disciplines from international business and management studies to the creative arts and from philosophy to psychotherapy, enabling you to examine how your leadership changes as the context changes.
You will build on your experience to develop a dynamic, flexible approach to the challenges of leadership for today and for the future.
This is a part time degree programme spread over 18 months, enabling students to continue working whilst studying for their professional Masters degree.
Three years in development and now in its third successful year of teaching, the programme has been life changing for many students and is quickly setting a new standard in leadership studies.
Please note that we are not able to sponsor students on this programme for a Tier 4 visa.
Why should I choose this programme?
Leaders are influencers with the insights and skills to change the way things are, to plan different futures and help move whole organisations in new directions. Their impact can be profound and life-changing for themselves and for others. To be effective they need to dig deep into their own resources.
This Masters programme enables leaders to explore their own resources and to discover how to make the most of them. Fresh thinking and a creative frame of mind are added ingredients that we help to instill.
There is no typical person profile for this programme. It is designed for those whose leadership is recognised today as well as those who lead without the title. It is for reluctant leaders and leaders-in-waiting. It is for those with years of experience and those new to the influencer role. It is for those who want to lead others more effectively and those keen to know how to better lead themselves.
“ Everyone on the course is so different, we are individuals and leaders in our own right, and yet we each feel that the course is speaking to us personally”.
Key skills, aims and objectives
