Course content

The MSc Leadership and Management is a dynamic and contextually relevant course for those who wish to progress their careers and to develop as professionals. The course develops your knowledge, understanding and conceptual awareness, and additionally develops your skills. It is designed for those who are new to management roles, for those who are beginning to lead teams, functions and decision-making in their organisations, but also for those with limited pre-existing leadership or management experience, who wish to become leaders and managers in organisations.

The MSc Leadership and Management course provides opportunities to develop a blend of functional and operational perspectives for a range of managerial levels, roles and responsibilities across sectors, for applicants who may have limited managerial experience / management education. You will study perspectives on the concept of leadership and also learn about functional topics including marketing management, international human resource management, and finance. You will also study strategic planning and learn how to lead transformation and change, which is of importance in the dynamic organisations of today and tomorrow. Your knowledge will be integrated and contextualized through a range of modules, culminating in a dissertation project.

In a dynamic global environment, a complexity of factors, including technology, enterprise and innovation have a significant impact on business and organisational systems and functions. Effective Leaders and Managers are required to deliver organisational imperatives, therefore it is through this comprehensive study of leadership and management, coupled with the use of a range of learning strategies such as case studies, visiting speakers, co-curricular opportunities and blended learning, that we believe your career as the leaders and managers of today and tomorrow will be enhanced.
