Course Summary

About the course

This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6-month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree within a UK environment after completing the 12-month taught programme.

This course cultivates an appreciation of the crucial relationship between strategic communication and leadership. This understanding is explored through a consideration of the role contemporary leaders should play in addressing urgent and complex challenges facing society.

  • On this course particular attention is given to wider humanitarian issues faced by global business practitioners.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to explore philosophical, psychological, professional, and intercultural frameworks of ethics related to leadership-followership/citizenship.
  • The 18-month route has the opportunity to undertake a 6-month placement element at the end of the 12 month taught programme.

Modules

This module, alert to historic developments, and drawing on principles of international law, investigates how national, regional and international initiatives to regulate the ever-changing dynamics of financial and cultural globalisation, are affecting respect for human rights in contemporary society.
