This course combines cutting-edge theory with skills training to produce effective, engaging leaders. Whether you want to lead a team or a multinational company, we can help you achieve your goals.

Drawing on expertise from the management school and from our world-class Institute of Work Psychology (IWP), we’ll show you how to develop strategy, motivate people and nurture innovation.

This course is designed to reflect the business environment and the focus is on skills-building and action learning.

There are two modules dedicated to real-world case studies and teamwork and we invite guest speakers from business and industry and organise field trips to leading companies.

You can also apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation.
