Course content

As a director or senior executive, leadership is the most important part of your role. However, in a turbulent business climate, leaders cannot model themselves on leadership approaches from the past and expect to meet the demands of today. To support leaders to respond to these demands, we have designed a development programme that uses 21st century approaches to meet the 21st century challenges we all face.

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.
