Course Summary

This MSc is for experienced graduates in management, or related areas, who are looking to enhance their subject knowledge and develop advanced research skills. The programme is particularly suitable if you are aspiring to a career with a significant focus on management and/or organisational development. The programme will help you to develop and enhance your skills in management, reflect on your own practice and gain an excellent understanding of how creating direction and vision through communication, motivation and inspiration can aid the growth, success and sustainability of an organisation. Management development is a term used to cover a wide range of learning activity in organisations, driven by global competition and the increased pace of change in the environment. Essentially, its purpose is to enhance the capacity of organisations, and the people within them, to successfully execute tasks and achieve specific work outcomes through effective leadership.

The programme will be delivered through a hybrid approach that makes use of group sessions and one-to-one meetings. The modules may be delivered weekly, in block sessions, or by some other appropriate arrangements such as audio/video conferencing or online discussions as appropriate. Most modules are assessed through essays and other written research projects. The dissertation/research project is predominately assessed based on a 25,000-word written thesis. An MSc in Leadership and Management Development qualification could be a crucial step towards a career in areas such as general management, organisational development or consultancy. The skills and experience acquired throughout the programme also provide essential preparation for progressing onto higher research qualifications, such as MPhil and PhD.
