The MA Leadership and Management (Health and Social Care) is designed to meet the needs of the leader and manager who is working in the health and social care field. It offers a high degree of flexibility in the pattern of study that reflects the amount of time likely to be available over the period of the programme.
This programme focuses on the continuing professional development needs of public and third sector managers and others in a leadership role within their organisation. To enable managers to tailor their programme of study to meet their specific requirements a range of modules are offered.
The course is modular and is intended to provide those leading and managing in health and social care services with an understanding of the changing context of management and organisation in these sectors. The MA focuses on management and leadership issues, drawing on the experiences of the course members, and relating their work situation to theoretical models of leadership and management in the public, voluntary and independent sectors.
