Strategy, Change and Leadership

This practical master's degree will give you a thorough grounding in leading high-performing teams, managing change and developing robust strategic direction. The programme has been designed to deliver a return on investment from day one. You will gain a broader perspective on the complexities within organisations and the issues affecting success and failure. The programme will help you to understand how to enhance your own impact as a leader, develop a deep understanding of how to deal with change and uncertainty, and increase your ability to think about organisational issues and opportunities in different ways. The MSc enables you to build a strong network of like-minded professionals across a wide range of sectors and can provide a foundation for faster career progression.

Course modules

The programme is delivered through intensive three-day teaching blocks, which have been designed to make a difference to your professional practice month by month. There are no examinations and students are supported with one-to-one supervision. The master's award can be gained in two years, and this is the most common route. It is also possible to work towards the MSc in stages, across three or four years. The first stage is the postgraduate certificate. This comprises four three-day workshops across a six-month period. Following this, participants can study for the postgraduate diploma in four three-day workshops running from July to March of the following year. For the final award of MSc in Strategy, Change and Leadership, participants complete an applied work-based project of about 15,000 words. Most students opt to take the master's in two consecutive years, which means they build a deep and lasting network with the same group of participants.
