MSc Strategic Leadership (Part- time)

Course Overview

This work-based programme is reflective of current thinking in strategic leadership and provides an excellent platform for aspiring or substantive senior leaders and managers to enhance and develop sought after strategic leadership skills. Designed for those who wish to gain a postgraduate degree whilst balancing employment and a range of other commitments, this programme will develop your knowledge, skills and competence in the areas of personal and professional development, leadership, people management, innovation, finance and organizational strategy.


Throughout the programme, you will become knowledgeable about the theory and practice of responsible business, leadership and management in the context of your own personal and professional practice, organisation and sector specific contextual drivers, and broader societal and global challenges. You will develop your ability to critically reflect on your leadership approach and management capability and practice, whilst also cultivating an awareness of cultural and ethical issues that impact on your individual practice and organisational contexts. Furthermore, you will work on developing research skills, critical thinking and effective organisational improvement techniques as well as exploring all the personal competences associated with leadership and management in complex, dynamic and excellence focused organisations. But it’s not just about cutting edge theory; it’s also about hands-on practical experience. To this end, you are encouraged to build on your own leadership and management experience with work related assignments which will contribute to developing self, career and workplace improvement. Modules within the programme will adopt a combination of research approaches including learning how to research, extracting knowledge from and critically analysing research from others and importantly, applying research in your daily practice. This MSc aims to provide you with a framework of learning that develops your personal and professional capabilities as an existing or aspiring senior leader, supports you in applying cutting edge business theory to enhance organisational practice and builds your capacity to lead investigations, people and projects in the workplace.
