Course Summary

The Place Management and Leadership programme is an international, part-time course that is predominantly for existing practitioners in the place management sector. Place management encompasses a range of professions internationally, including town and city centre management, market management, Downtown and Main street management, destination management and marketing, Business Improvement District management and city marketing and branding. It is increasingly involving civic society and the third sector, and embraces new approaches to place change such as the Transition Town movement. For this reason the course is also suitable for local politicians and local community members leading or contributing to place initiatives. The programme has been designed around the worldwide professional standards developed by the Institute of Place Management to support those that are already in, or wish to move into, a strategic role in place management. A blended learning delivery model is adopted. Each 30 credit unit is delivered through a three-day blocks of master classes, followed by distance learning and tutor support. Graduates are expected to combine their Place Management qualification with their current qualifications and personal achievements to develop a unique profile that stands out from other graduates. During this course, graduates will also achieve Pg Dip by completing 16 months part-time and Pg Cert by completing 8 months part-time. A blended learning delivery model is adopted.
