Executive Leadership

In this MSc course, we show how leaders in organisations can develop and nurture strategic thinking at all levels. To be a strong role model is important too, so up to date approaches to ethics and governance feature throughout. However, the key to sustainable success is the capacity to lead through innovation, to outthink the competition and then to outperform it.

Entry requirements

Applicants must normally have gained a second class Honours degree or better from a university or an equivalent standard (normally 50 pecent) in a Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma or an approved alternative qualification, and at least 5 years experience in a senior managerial/leadership role; provide evidence of competence in written and spoken English (GCSE grade C or equivalent); in exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant experiential learning, a portfolio of written evidence demonstrating the meeting of graduate qualities (including subject-specific outcomes, as determined by the Course Committee) may be considered as an alternative entrance route. Evidence used to demonstrate graduate qualities may not be used for exemption against modules within the programme.
