How will this course help me and my organisation?
You will have the opportunity to bring real workplace issues to the table, to analyse and find solutions to the challenges you encounter in your own working environment. The course is ‘action based’ which means that in your assignments and dissertation you will apply your learning directly to your work, giving you the opportunity to make real improvements to the business. You will also benefit from developing the ability to objectively challenge the status quo, to critically analyse situations, to reflect on your actions and learning, and to gain confidence in your management and leadership skills.

You will study the following subjects during your time with us:
